The Official Kanye West "808s and Heartbreak" Thread

Sep 15, 2008 @ 15:58
I think it will be released on iTunes really soon, tomorrow maybe.
When you search for 'Love Lockdown' on iTunes Store it lists Kanye West as artist but there is no song yet... Before it didn't show him as artist when I searched for this song.
From my experience song that I looked for was often released next Tuesday when artist who perform it was shown on the artists list.



BTW sorry for my English...

Thats obviously not the final version guys. He performed it about a week and a half after it was written, theres gonna be a few rough drafts.

It's pretty cool that he blogs, tellin' his fans what's up.

Really wanna hear the final version, it'll prolly be piff. The version out now is growing on me everyday.

Do you guys really like this shit? I think Lovelockdown is bordering homo techno rave emo music shit.

I didn't like the performance version but this new one is alot better. Also, no, this is not bordering homo emo music. Just because you are ignorant to different types of music does not mean it is bad. blinkyeyes

I just like the melody and the music, which is what Kanye is known for, his tracks.

Love lockdown is dope.

Too everyone hating, he is obviously doing something right, for you to be hating.

Is your avatar that girl in the Love Lockdown pics?
Sep 21, 2008 @ 15:23
new version is good, but still can be improved. for some reason the chorus just doesn't match the song.
Sep 22, 2008 @ 00:41
well he is back with his ex...?? wonder if its gonna change anything on the album...
Sep 22, 2008 @ 15:07

Pretty sure that's 88 Keys' song, not Kanye's.

Ok I just read that when Ye was at 106 & Park on the 15th, he MIGHT move the release date of 808's and Heartbreak to December 9th, so he can have another SoundScan ( ? ) battle with 50. December 9th seems to be pretty packed. You got Ye, 50's "Before I Self-Destruct," Busta's "Blessed," and Dream's "Love VS Money."
