Kanye West’s New Album Might Be Called ‘Rich Black American’


As we know, 2013 is going to be a pretty ginormous year for the one they call Kanye West. First of all, there’s the part where he’s gonna be a Dad. Yeah, still not over that madness, lol! Also, waaayyy back in July, Yeezy’s producer No I.D. spoke very briefly about an upcoming Ye album and it looks like it’s going down! There’s a new photo making its way around the interwebs and, although it cannot be confirmed (and nobody knows where the photo/partial track list came from) it looks like the album might be called Rich Black American. Click inside for more!

So here’s the possible photographic evidence:

Complex has the story:

Rich Black American, according to this photo, has features from Pusha TFrank OceanBeyoncéFlorence WelchSkrillex and Big Sean. There’s also “Perfect Bitch” on the line-up, which Kanye previously tweeted about, and was reportedly written about Kim KardashianSkrillex mentioned in an interview earlier this year that he would be collaborating with Kanye, too—and sure enough, he’s on the album’s rumored line-up.

Can this be true? Strangely enough, everything looks legit, but the source of the photo cannot be confirmed at this time.

Okay. Soooo, nobody talk to me right now. Because it looks like Frank Ocean, Pusha T, and Kanye West are on a song together… and seeing as how I just dreamt about Pusha T last night (and no, I can’t talk about it in detail… my children may read these posts one day), I’m gonna assume that this is totally true! Agh! Plus Florence Welch! That track she did with ASAP Rocky was so sweet, I love the idea of her teaming up with more of my fave rappers. Love it!

As far as the album title… um. Well. Yeezy could stand to get a little more creative with it, but I guess he just wants to make sure we all remember, like, which demographics he falls under. Thanks Ye.

Anybody almost as psyched about this news as the baby news?!

    I love all of the new Florence collaborations that keep coming out. First Sweet Nothing, then her song with A$AP, if this Kanye thing is true I will be so damn happy. I love that this is how she deals with taking a year off between records, swooping in on the occasional track to remind everyone what a flawless ginger goddess of sound she is.

    I literally had a Kanye Day on Saturday, going thru his whole catalogue from Thru the Wire to Mercy and I was jamming ALL day! So being ecstatic about this news is an understatement. More Ye Please!!!

    Also, I had to laugh cause when gold digger came on… Please Ye, follow your own advice…
    “If you ant no punk holla we want prenup, WE WANT PRENUP! Yeah, It’s something that you need to have
    ‘Cause when she leave yo ass she gone leave with half
    18 years, 18 years, And on her 18th birthday he found out it wasn’t his”

      OMG, excellent point. I hope Ye has an attorney as vicious as Kris Jenner.
