He's back! After a long hiatus from the nightlife scene, Kanye West made an appearance at LES hotspot CV on Saturday night. And fans of the "College Dropout" got more than just a sighting. We hear he gave the deejay four tracks from his upcoming album to play for the crowd. "Josh Hartnett and Kid Cudi were both there, and they immediately got up and started dancing," said one spy. "Kanye stayed with his own entourage in a corner booth, but looked pretty pleased." (NY Daily News)
DJ Semtex recently spoke on what fans could expect to hear from West's new project.
"The album is coming in September. Okay, so I've heard the first Kanye West joint. I was sworn to secrecy. All I can say is it is banging. If that's a taste of what's coming on the album, he has smacked it. Lyrically....he is saying things like, 'Wow, he said that?' It is going to shock everybody, the first record." (Miss LS)
Producer Pharrell Williams also recently discussed Ye's upcoming record.
"I had the chance to listen to the new Kanye West album. I think that people are going to be shocked. His precedent was crazy, this new one goes even farther." (Nah Right)
DJ Premier talked about the sound of Ye's upcoming album in a recent interview.
"Well, first of all, if you look at all of Kanye West's output, he actually did a lot to bring back sampling and make it cool again, even though he's more of a mainstream artist" Premier explained. "But his new album is strictly hard beats and rhyme. He's totally done with electro. You're gonna be surprised what you hear." (Amajanese)
