Kanye West Rumored to Release Spoken Word Album

Kanye West is rumored to release a 3 hour long spoken word album on vinyl. Possible topics of the spoken word are his daughter North West, his fiance that we ALL just love (insert sarcastic voice here) Kim Kardashian and his outlooks on the environment. I can’t really say I personally am loooking forward to the spoken word album if THOSE are the listed topics….but hey, everybody’s a critique. There’s a Yeezus fan somewhere that will appreciate Kanye babbling on about life with Kim Kardashian…..

Rapper Common appeared on CNN and discussed his upcoming plans to release his album which will be centered around Chicago’s violence. He plans to name his album “Nobody’s Smiling” and plans to team up with fellow Chicago native Kanye West to take a new initiative to provide 20,000 of Chicago’s youth with employment. He says, “It’s my duty to reach out to young people in Chicago, it’s my way of giving back. ‘Cause I’ve been afforded a chance to go out and live out my dreams, and I’m still dreaming. I wanna inspire and open up the gateways for the younger people in Chicago to go live their dreams.” Watch the video for the rapper’s positive plans.
