Kanye releasing G.O.O.D. record compilation
The pitfalls of Twitter news is that details can often be scant. Kanye West can be vague. Combine them together and you have a brief but vaguelly dependable news of a new album.
This week, West Tweeted the following news: "GOODMUSIC.THE ALBUM.SPRING2012"
Def Jam, home to West's G.O.O.D. record label imprint, Re-Tweeted the nugget. What is being formulated, it seems, is a compilation of G.O.O.D. Music artists' tracks.
Unknown is who and what exactly will be on "THE ALBUM: the stable includes Big Sean, Kid Kudi, CyHi Da Prynce, Mos Def, Common, Mr. Hudson, Pusha T and John Legend, and West also sent new, non-label songs out into the ether during his GOOD Friday promotion last year.
At least the rapper seems to make good on many of his promises: after West spent almost a year of ballyhoo and hype, he and Jay-Z delivered an album together, "Watch the Throne," late this summer.
