Word on the street is Kanye West will release a 3-hour spoken word album later this year. According to Contactmusic, the project will include rants, err, poems, about his boo Kim Kardashian, his baby girl North, the environment (huh?), and much more.
One “source” told British tabloid The Sun: “He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment. He’s forever recording his opinions on tape. Kanye likes to push the boundaries and thinks this is very groundbreaking. He’s hoping it’ll win him a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album.”
After checking the article’s date to make sure it wasn’t written on April 1st and giggling myself into a tizzy at the thought of Kanye West trying get all Def Poetry on us again, I got to thinking about what a Yeezy poetry album might actually sound like.
So, here are 10 poems I wouldn’t be surprised to hear on Kanye West’s spoken word album. Be sure to add your titles in the comments below.
