Published Sep 28, 2010Another day, another barrage of Kanye West updates. Yesterday (September 27), we learned that Kanye had signed rapper/actor Mos Def to his record label, G.O.O.D. Music. Then, just this morning, we reported some more details concerning his Jay-Z-assisted EP, Watch the Throne. Now, we've learned that the ultra-prolific MC has reportedly set a November release date for his wildly anticipated new full-length.
According to Rap Up, Kanye's new album will be dropping on November 23. This date would make sense, since it's the Tuesday before Black Friday, when the Christmas shopping season begins.
A different report by NME suggests that the LP will come out on November 16. Meanwhile, Fake Shore Drive claims that the Watch the Throne EP, is scheduled to drop on November 23.
There's one thing that all of the sources agree on: Kanye will be dropping something in November. The full-length is rumoured to be called Dark Twisted Fantasy, having long been referred to as Good Ass Job, a title now scrapped. When the album drops, it will be Yeezy's first album since 2008's 808s & Heartbreak. Among the songs expected to be on the album are the single "Power" and the Pusha T-assisted "Runaway."
UPDATE: Kanye himself has now provided a release-date update, tweeting, "I'm still contemplating my album date... I'm finished with it but when should I drop?" Thanks for the tease, Yeezy.
