Leak Of The Day, Part Two: Kanye West Graduates

May 16th, 2007 // 4 Comments

kanye.jpgLast night, the clean version of “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” the first single from Kanye West’s forthcoming Graduation, made its way to the Internet; it’s built around a tense string loop crafted by Atlanta producer DJ Toomp and Kanye taunting anyone who dares to get in his way with drama:

    So next year we should expect Post-Doc Fellowship.

    I vaguely remember him stating that his fourth album would be titled:

    “Good Ass Job”

    or something to that effect

    Great record! Lines like, “on TV talking like it’s just you and me,” show how he really reflects, and perhaps regrets, some of his antics in-between albums.

    I heard him on LA radio in a phone interview recently, where he (over the phone!) premiered an acapella of a verse from the new album because, “I just finished this last night, thought it was good, and wanted you all to hear.” Who does that?

    In addition to looking and acting like the biggest rap star on earth, he desperately wants to make the record to go with that. I think he was frustrated with Late Registration — expect a HUGE, and crtically acclaimed, record this year!

    Aight then, holla then.

    Weird fact: if you rearrange the letters “jhowlin,” you can spell “rocafella intern.”
