Kanye West’s Biggest Collaboration Yet

Kanye West

If you thought Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Friday song “Monster” was a monster, wait until you get a load of the superstars featured on his next single.

Mr. West has recruited a random smattering of A-listers for “All of the Lights,” the third single from his fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, due November 22.

Rap-Up.com was in the house at Monday night’s screening of his short film Runaway in Los Angeles where he revealed the eleven names that contributed to the super-sized track. They are Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Elton John, Fergie, John Legend, The-Dream, Tony Williams, Kid Cudi, Charlie Wilson, Ryan Leslie, and La Roux’s Elly Jackson.

He described the combo as “completely seamless and completely ghetto as f**k.” He took bit and pieces from each artist, so don’t necessarily expect to hear full verses.

In addition to being included on the album, the song can be heard in his 35-minute Runaway video, premiering Saturday, October 23, at 8 p.m. EST.

    He said bits and pieces, so I’m interested to hear what’s he going to pull from them. It might be that much tighter. I liked just his version, but so long as no one has long and too many verses then I’ll look at it as sampling. It will still be dope either way… c’mon it’s Kanye we are talking about! :-)
