Kanye West is currently sitting in the studio, watching football, and dropping bombs via twitter. Out of the blue West decided to fire off a string of six tweets, sending the industry into an absolute frenzy. We already know about West’s collaboration, Watch The Throne, with Jay-Z, as well as his music video for “All Of The Lights”, but the announcement of his next studio album being released this summer was completely unexpected. Below are the exact quotes from West’s twitter account.
@kanyewest : I’ll be back this SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!
@kanyewest : IN THE STUDIO NOW WITH THE BEARS GAME ON
@kanyewest : WATCH THE THRONE COMING IN 2 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!
@kanyewest : MY NEW ALBUM COMING THIS SUMMER
@kanyewest : ALL THE LIGHTS VIDEO IN 1 WEEK!!!!!!
@kanyewest : THIS IS HIGH END RAP MUSIC
Now, take into consideration that Kanye’s next studio album will probably be delayed sometime during the recording process. This summer time frame might turn into Q4 of 2011, but regardless of when it releases this is very exciting news. Also, I thought one of Kanye’s rules is that no one is allowed to tweet in the studio?
