Reports: Kanye West To Release 3-Hour Spoken Word Album

(AllHipHop News) Reports are circulating that Kanye West is to release a three-hour spoken word album. According to Contactmusic, the vinyl recording will include West addressing his fiancée Kim Kardashian, new daughter North, the environment, and more.

“He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment. He’s forever recording his opinions on tape,” a source told The Sun. “‘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.”

The Sun’s source adds that Kanye may take a page out of Pharrell William’s book by releasing 24 hours of his speeches for download. Pharrell posted a 24-hour music video for his hit single “Happy” in 2013.

Whether the “New Slaves” rapper actually drops a record of his poetic musings is at a “wait-and-see” stage at this point, but several people close to Kanye have said publicly that he is working on the follow-up to 2013’s Yeezus album.

Ye’s tour DJ Million Dollar Mano tweeted earlier this month that Kanye’s next solo album will have a different sound than Yeezus, and producer Evian Christ has stated Kanye wants a sound “a bit like Otis Redding, a bit like Mobb Deep” for the project.

    YES, thats what we’ve all been waiting for: MORE RANTS.
    No but seriously, if he’s actually trying to do spoken word POETRY then good luck, but if he’s just talking for 3 hours on end… that’s pretty much the definition of self-indulgent, right?

    Pac’s collection/series “rose that grew from concrete” etc was hot…. this will not!

        Yes! Enough of that 2pac mess. They should instead worship the mighty Hov! I see that you are one of his disciples.

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        im saying he had a great album dealing with this. no other nicca came close to this and now this kimye doing it too? it will be trash!

      • ThatBostonMan

        You don’t know that. Why call something trash prior to hearing it?

        At least let him make an attempt. Worst case is it could be funny.

        I’d gladly rip your jugular vein out, let you spurt blood like a geyser, and watch you die screaming in extreme agony….

      Proof the world ISN’T coming to an end?

  • Jared

    He wifed up Kim Kardashian. He can’t be taken that serious anymore lol.

    • ThatBostonMan

      What is wrong with Kim Kardashian? People tend to get married to someone and she’s not that bad if you’re being serious.

      Judge him on his own merit and not by who he married.

  • Their source is The Sun.. The British gossip rag that never has a true story in it… Let them tell it, MJ is still alive and partying in St Bart’s along with Pac, Biggie, Elvis, The Loch Ness Mosnter, a Yeti, and a Chupacabra… Cant believe everything on the internet folks….

  • So an album with Kanye ranting about his wife and kid and relationship is what he might release? Why when they clearly don’t want the public all in their business? Now they are serving their business to us in the form of spoken word….. #nothankyou

  • johnblacksad

    I’d rather read this in the rumor section… please say it’s not true

  • Tyfromthechi

    I love kanye but he went left since the passing of his mother I don’t wish bad on people but I can’t wait until Kim kardashian shit on him maybe that will bring back the old kanye

    THREE HOURS & dis nicca ‘talking’ about nonsense?!……. I Pass! Just BRING THE HITS dat Yeezus was too out there, with no lasting qualities!

  • JD

    What a f’cking idiot. Dude thinks he’s so important

    • ThatBostonMan

      Honestly, he is important because his experiences are rare and unique. The question is whether or not we want to pay for 3 hours of it when he could just make a Youtube video or have interviews like everyone else.

      • JD

        His experiences are rare? He produces hip hop, raps poorly, and cry’s like a 6 year old anytime something doesn’t go his way.

  • People will buy it, don’t they already go to his shows to listen to him rant?
    Let’s not diss the dude for trying to cash in.

    • ThatBostonMan

      He can rant but who exactly is going to his shows to hear it for 3 hours? Hiphop itself is about ranting, but you still need to have the music side of it if you’re going to rant.

      I don’t know if a spoken word album is going to make much money but it will probably end up on Youtube if its any good and people will listen.

      He would have more success doing this kind of album if he were funny. Bill Cosby, Chris Rock or Dave Chappelle can release a spoken word album any time.

      • He’ll only find out by testing the idea. But I think people will still buy it as strange as it sounds. I’m sure he’ll have some background instrumental while he rants.

        I personally haven’t bought a kanye track since Late registration. As a matter of fact I’m just listening to his ” Graduation” album on Youtube while I work. I’m just curios to find out what I missed.

        Big up to the dudes philanthropy though. I miss the Kanye from the earlier days. A lot has changed for him since then.

    The proud non reader wants to to give a 3 hr seminar. Unbelievable.

  • Faceda59

    You guys can’t tell Ye he can’t do this .Do you know why?BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE THE ANSWER SWAY.Kanye has really lost his mind.Too much money,too many yes men around him.Hell the music has not been good for a while now.Can’t see my self just listening to him rant about being a rich slave.Nike won’t give me full control for my shoes cause i’m a slave.GTFOH.Go cry to Kim and her famous snatch!

    • ThatBostonMan

      It’s better to be a rich comfortable slave than a poor slave. I’m pretty sure he’s happy not to have to live in the ghetto. Most white people (or people of any race) aren’t going to have some of the things he has.

      On the other hand being a celebrity is kind of like being a slave. But we are all becoming celebrities now that we have everything going online. So Kanye isn’t going to get much sympathy in a world where a lot of people with just as much talent as him aren’t living as good.

  • ThatBostonMan

    Make up your mind Kanye. Are you doing this to win a Grammy, make money, or to express your real views?

    If you’re expressing your real views just release it with or without permission and accept the consequences. A lot of people aren’t going to agree with your views and this might mean lower album sales.

    • why can’t he just drop a 3-hour spoken word album ?

    • golder1

      He isnt worried about consequences for releasing this project because their wont be any. Why cant he want to rlease this project as well as make money and be and have the desire to be recognized for his work as so many other people do. People dont agree with his views now but doesnt stop him from still speaking his mind. He has a core group of fans who will always buy his music and go to his concerts. He is not worried about album sales
