Published Sep 28, 2010Either Kanye West has a few clones of himself running around or dude has had one busy year. Besides the constant stream of new music for his G.O.O.D. Fridays series and work on his new album, the egomaniacal rapper-producer keeps adding to his list of upcoming releases, including an EP with Jay-Z and a full-length with John Legend.
As previously reported, Kanye's Jay-Z collaboration is called Watch the Throne and will feature the duo's Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Bon Iver collaboration "Monster", as well as the recently released "So Appalled" with Pusha T, RZA, Swizz Beatz and Cyhi the Prynce. On top of that, Kanye recently tweeted that the EP will include beats from Pete Rock, Q-Tip and Madlib.
When he's not busy with his own material, Kanye continues to work hard on his G.O.O.D. Music imprint. Aside from signing Mos Def and Pusha T, Kanye is hard at work collaborating with John Legend. In a recent Billboard cover story, Legend revealed that Kanye will play a heavy role on his next alum.
"I'm starting the next solo album now," Legend said. "Kanye and I are executive producers together... I also worked on Kanye's album a little bit, on the 'Power' remix and other stuff. But God only knows what Kanye is actually going to put on the album and what's going to be on [Watch the Throne]."
Amidst all this chaos, Kanye also taped his second appearance on the admittedly terrible Family Guy offshoot The Cleveland Show. The track, stupidly titled "Be-Cleve in Yourself," actually features some decent rapping despite a terrible beat and premise.
