Rumor has it Kanye West is taking things full circle, back to his days in the early-aughts when he’d kick spoken word on Def Poetry Jam on occasion. But now he’s taking it to another level by releasing a full blown spoken word album. A three hour one at that. Says Contact Music:
The ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker will reportedly make the three-hour recording available on vinyl, and it will feature everything from his views on the environment to life with fiancee Kim Kardashian and their 10-month-old daughter North.
A source said: ”Kanye loves the sound of his own voice and this will be the ultimate in self-indulgence.
”He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment. 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.” …
… And for fans who are particularly enamoured by the project, there will be a special extended version of the album available for download.
The source said: ”What’s more, he’s planning on making 24 hours of his speech recording available to download so fans can listen to his views round the clock.”
