Kanye West, Kid Cudi announce new 2011 albums via Twitter
As if he wasn't busy enough prepping a collab effort with Jay-Z, Kanye West seems to be setting his sites on another new solo set for 2011.
In a series of Tweets on Jan. 23, he addressed "Watch the Throne" as well as slipped in a little, suprising new album news.
“I’ll be back this SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!” he said, before saying the Jay-Z/West set would be “COMING IN 2 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!” Before that happens, his music video for “All of the Lights” will arrive “IN 1 WEEK!!!!!!” And then, “MY NEW ALBUM COMING THIS SUMMER.”
"WE DROPPING NEW MUSIC CAUSE IT'S OUR FUCKING JOB! THIS WHAT WE HERE TO DO! WE THE NEW STONES WE THE NEW BEATLES!" he continued on Jan. 26. Those 140 characters and all-caps say so much.
Meanwhile, his G.O.O.D. label signee Kid Cudi said he's got 2011 plans as well, despite that he only just released "Man on the Moon II" late last year. He mentioned he's working on a rock record -- "no rapping" -- to be titled "Wizard," for release this summer. He won't leave rhymes alone, though, in his next mixtape "A Man Named Scott," also to drop during the warmer months this year.
