Kanye West may have gotten his start as a beat maker, but The Sun is reporting that his new record will only feature his voice. The unreliable British tabloid claims that the famous rapper and infamous ranter is developing a 3-hour spoken word album set to be released on vinyl. It's said to feature Kanye's views on the environment and his family life with his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, and their 10-year-old daughter, North. Though this may be true, also consider that The Sun reported that a woman had sex with a ghost.
An anonymous source said:
Kanye loves the sound of his own voice and this will be the ultimate in self-indulgence.
He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment. He’s forever recording his opinions on tape.
He says he’s doing it for posterity and thought about turning them into a book or even donating them to a museum.
Kanye likes to push the boundaries and thinks this is very groundbreaking. He's hoping it'll win him a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album.
Just in case a 3-hour spoken word album leaves you wanting more, Kanye is reported to release a 24-hour extended version available for download. We'll believe it when we see it.
In other news, the slightly more reliable TMZ reports that Kanye and Kim will get married this week. They got engaged last year on October 21st, which was Kim's 33rd birthday. The couple will be wed in a private ceremony in their home by a court official. They will have a lavish wedding ceremony in Paris after about a month of marriage in California.
Kanye is recording his seventh solo album, currently set to be released later this year. That can be confirmed.
