Kanye West Stays Positive on New Album

Kanye West

It was just a regular day at the offices of Rolling Stone until Kanye West stopped by for an impromptu performance and album listening.

After his trips to Facebook and Twitter earlier in the week, Kanye treated the magazine’s staffers to nearly a dozen new tracks plus snippets of unfinished material from his fifth album. Mr. West, clad in a charcoal gray suit, rapped on top of a boardroom table and fielded questions from the audience (he’d like to work with Lauryn Hill and Thom Yorke).

The new Twitter addict described the tone of his as-yet-untitled record as positive. “I feel like [now] I can be a vessel for good will and energy,” he said, while admitting that he’s made mistakes in the past. RS called the material “some of Kanye’s most adventurous and experimental music yet” featuring heavy beats, sparse piano lines, electric guitar solos, and sci-fi melodies.

“People fall short of the greatness of rock ‘n’ roll,” Yeezy told the crowd. “They’re all scared. Everybody’s fu**ing pu**y. And all the people that could be real rock stars get scared and just run away from popular culture. It takes so much for me and Eminem to come back and embrace [it] and say, ‘You know what? We have to deliver this on a major level to make a difference.’”

During a series of drunken tweets, Kanye revealed that the album will feature production from Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA. Nicki Minaj is also set to make an appearance on the September 14 release, as Rap-Up.com previously reported.

    I’m a big Kanye West fan, but i think this album won’t be that good… I don’t know why. I just have that feeling. Experimental music ? Hope this shit ain’t like 808′s. Imma cop CD, but his best work thus far was “College D.” He can’t do better than that.
