Published Jun 28, 2010With small leaks of information here and there, we've been able to piece together that Kanye West's exciting return to rap will be out this year, and will likely be called Good Ass Job. On top of that, we've heard rumours that RZA, Q-Tip, Pete Rock and DJ Premierwere among those producing beats for the record. Now, we've got something a little more substantial: the album is said to have a proper release date.
According to a Tweet from Kanye associate and G.O.O.D. label-mate Big Sean, Kanye's new album will come out on September 14 alongside Sean's Finally Famous and Kid Cudi's Man on the Moon Pt. 2. Similarly, rap businessman Andre Harrell dropped a poorly written Tweet that points to a September 14 release date.
Neither Kanye's design/mp3 blog nor his art porn blog have made any official announcement, but we won't be surprised if September 14 is the date. 'Ye dropped the lead single "Power" earlier this month, and performed it on the BET Awards last Sunday (June 27). That performance can be streamed below.
