Anyone who thought Kanye West was going away just because of a little award show incident was fooling himself. Kanye quietly inserted himself back into pop culture with the an appearance in the “We Are the World” remake, and recently broke into the world of cartoon voice-acting. Now he’s set to make the best album of the decade (allegedly), and he’s off to a good start.
While the idea of Soulja Boy making an appearance on the upcoming album, tentatively titled Good Ass Job (by the way, Kanye, please put a hyphen in there somewhere), is head-scratching at best, SOHH reports there are some more impressive names working with West on this one.
Okay, that’s not much of an achievement, but seriously, there are some interesting reported collabos. Fuse TV’s Touré has learned that Q-Tip, RZA, and the legendary Pete Rock have all put in production work on the new album. Not only that, but Drake (who, like West, is recording his new LP in Hawaii) and Pusha T of Clipse have contributed to the LP, which will be West’s fifth full-length.
It’s impossible to say for sure, but it seems likely that these particular collaborations mean West is phasing out the Auto-Tune experiments and getting back to making rap albums.
