Kanye West Reportedly Planning Spoken Word Album

Kanye West is allegedly working on a three-hour spoken word album.

Kanye West is reportedly planning on releasing a spoken word album, according to an article on contactmusic.com.  

The story says the project will be three-hours long and that it will be available on vinyl.

Topics West is said to discuss on the project include his daughter North, life with fiancée Kim Kardashian and his views on the environment. 

An extended version available for download may also be available. 

''He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment,” a source says to contactmusic.com. "He's forever recording his opinions on tape. He says he's doing it for posterity and thought about turning them into a book or even donating them to a museum.’’

Earlier this month, Saigon referred to the G.O.O.D. Music emcee as “one of the best to ever do it” before commenting on ‘Ye’s skills as a composer.

“Kanye musically he’s one of the best to ever do it, man,” Saigon said. “Not just the lyrics, but I like the content of a lot of his stuff and the beats. And Kanye’s definitely one of the best musicians not just rappers, but I’d say composers and musicians ever in any genre of music.”

    Ridiculous idea. A 3 hour rant. Why does this guy think anyone would wanna hear that whiny shit. Plus he thinks a museum would want that? This guy is in way over his head. I've never seen sum1 wit such delusions of grandeur and a huge inflated ego. Jesus Christ

    This is obviously a fake story, why would he release it on vinyl? really? him and jayz has been trying to find new compelling ways to promote themselves, why would he put it out on vinyl, there is nothing attractive about that from a consumer standpoint and he knows this, there is no logic behind it. People just assume that kanye is completely crazy after his latest album and all the rants, but the rants still worked as promotion for him as an artist. This would take to much energy and time away from going in to the fashion world, why would he want to create a spoken word album, thats to close to music, and its not even an attractive product for him to sell. He wants to work with Disney on billion dollar projects, why would he ever wanna focus on something that at its best could be considered as an underground media? and the article is so obviously fake, come on, its way to exaggerated ''Kanye loves the sound of his own voice and this will be the ultimate in self-indulgence." "donating them to a museum. if you believe this that only proves that you're controlled by media and the image they used to put him in the crazy category. FACTS

      Wait, what's the point you're trying to make by bringing up Yeezus? That experimentation can create unique takes on an art form that are unlike anything before it? I'll be the first to admit it, a Kanye spoken word album doesn't sound like something worth getting pumped for, but your comment here about Yeezus was a good reminder that Kanye can take a concept which any other artist would fumble and make it into something truly original and dope. "Spoken word" brings expectations of something dry, boring and pretentious. Kanye has over a decades worth of evidence proving he's not any of those things (I know I know, "pretentious" is definitely arguable, but IMO he's come so close to the line without ever crossing it). Whether this spoken word album comes to fruition or not, and whether it's something the average Kanye fan will be interested in or not, how can anyone doubt for a second that Ye wouldn't be doing it with the utmost taste and dedication? Unless the problem in your taste, in which case I'd say broaden your influences, read a few classics, and come back to it when you're ready to enjoy things.

      Experimenting? That's what people do prior to becoming bisexuals.
