Kanye West Preps G.O.O.D. Music Album
Kanye West spent much of summer 2010 seeding the Internet with new music via his "G.O.O.D. Friday" track releases, previewing a number of the songs from his own My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.
And on Wednesday, West announced that he's packaging up some of those goods for a proper release. "Goodmusic. The album. Spring 2012," he tweeted, providing just a tease of what's to come.
'Ye's label, Def Jam, confirmed the release as well in a tweet, hyping upcoming albums from Rick Ross, the Roots, Young Jeezy and Rihanna, though a spokesperson could not be reached at press time for further details on the disc.
The G.O.O.D. Music bench is deep, so it's possible the disc could contain tracks from Big Sean, Kid Kudi, CyHi Da Prynce, Mos Def, Common, Mr. Hudson, Pusha T and John Legend. It could also contain a few of the "Friday" tracks that did not make the cut on Fantasy, including "Chain Heavy" with Talib Kweli and Consequence; "Looking for Trouble" with Pusha, CyHi, Big Sean and J. Cole; "Christian Dior Denim Flow" with Kid Cudi, Pusha, John Legend, Lloyd Banks and Ryan Leslie; and "Take One for the Team" with Keri Hilson, Pusha and CyHi.
West recently took a stroll down to New York's Zuccotti Park to check out the action at the Occupy Wall Street demonstration, not long after wrapping up his Twisted world tour in September at Austin City Limits. But he won't be chilling for long, as he's slated to kick off the Throne Tour with Jay-Z on October 28 at Atlanta's Philips Arena. The tour is currently slated to run through a December 18 date at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
