If this is an indicator of what the album will be like, then this will be the first Kanye album that I won't buy.

Kinda sucks that kanye isnt gonna go threw like he said and have is album called "Good Ass Job" but thats just imo.....
September 10, 2008 @ 02:12:18
true the school thing is getting old, but kanye did say when college dropout came out that he was putting out a 4 cd compelation with the school theme and he gave the titles out he said the 1st is college dropout, the 2nd late regestration, the 3rd graduation and the 4th universcity. i swear he said that.


It was gonna be called "Good Ass Job" cause thats what you get after you graduat College A GOOD ASS JOB!smokeyface

i think he should call it ******, but ye good ass job would of been dope. who knows though dec is a long ass time away, things change.
September 10, 2008 @ 02:31:11
We'll probably still get the Good Ass Job album, but what's the point of a career if it doesn't have any missteps or departures? I'm looking forward to his new material, emo Kanye or not. I figure he has plenty to deal with with the passing of his mother and the breakup with his fiance...music is his outlet. I'm glad I get to listen.
September 10, 2008 @ 02:40:10
honestly i'm not a kanye fan, but just speaking on the vma performance, when i heard he was closing with something new, i was expecting a crazy energy hype kinda joint with a "touch the sky" kinda feel. but i wasn't feeling love lockdown at all. it just sounded kind of..odd to me. just an opinion..
September 10, 2008 @ 02:52:58
I can't believe how much love this song is getting here.. It's just cause it's Kanye right? Whatever he does MUST be dope!

Go listen to FutureSex/LoveSound if you guys really like this so much.

And...yeah the school theme was cool but he's been running that shit for like 5 years now...everything comes to an end...at some point u need to grow as an artsist. If he pigeonholed himself in doing the same shit over and over it would get extremly boring.

Love Lockdown is officially my shit now too. ANd this is coming from someone who was hating on "Stronger" when it first dropped...


Not sure if anyone mentioned it but on amazon it says THIS:

Label: PENDULUM RECORDS

and remember the rumor mill said him and hov are supposed to drop albums NEXT year as well as this year. so we will probably STILL get good ass job.

4 school themed albums just like 4 years til ya graduated tongueface

sounds like ye wants to do something with his 2 albums like 50 cent did. cause you said yeah is gonna realease one this year and then next year soon after, also he already knows the title of both. sounds like what 50 was gonna do with releasing "curtis" and then soon after "beore i self destruct". everyone knew the tilese of both and didnt know what the 3rds album would be called until he said first is cutis then 3 months later "before i self destruct" but 50 ever did that prob becuasuse he is trash and his last 2 album sucked!

LOL not everyone knows what a 808 is...not everyone's into the construction aspect of music is...they just listen and let it ride out. It is what it is. People get into this "u newbies dont know nothing therefore u cant like this" talk.

its been confirmed that its not the cover

I HATE that attitude about people. For example when the Nike Dunk SB Ferris Bueller's came out, elitists were saying "ohh you don't even know the movie so you shouldn't buy these".... it's ridiculous.

Kanye shut down the MTV VMA Awards this year as he closed out the Award Show with his new single, “Love Lockdown“, which will be the first single off his fourth album that is reportedly being titled, 808’s and Heartbreaks. The name of the album is breaking away from Kanye’s first three album names themed after “college”. Cover art for the “Love Lockdown” has been made available while we are still waiting on the single to hit iTunes. The tentative album release date for 808’s and Heartbreaks is December 16th, 2008.

edit: Kanye made the chorus weird as hell. At parts its like he's mumbeling
September 10, 2008 @ 15:27:33
Damnit Kanye....

I was really feeling that live performance, but the studio version is a HUGE letdown.......

I wish he would make 808's & Heartbreak an EP or something..
