Kanye West Speaks on ‘Dark Fantasy’s’ Track List, Album With Jay-Z

After the debut of his short film, Runaway, this past Saturday (October 23), Kanye West opened up during a Q & A with MTV about the track listing for his new album as well as his collaborative project with Jay-Z.

“We still mixing ‘em,” Yeezy said of his own album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which currently has a tentative track listing posted in the iTunes store. There were reportedly going to be twelve tracks on the project. However, from the sound of things, the list that was posted was not final. “We got a few bonus tracks,” he said. “Like, we got ‘See Me Now;’ we have ‘Mama’s Boy’—we got some bonus tracks after the album. So, maybe it’s like 13, 14 [tracks]. Maybe ‘Chain Heavy’ will be on there,” he added referencing a song he previewed for the Facebook staff earlier this year, that made its way to YouTube. [Watch below]

Addressing the many leaks of songs from the track list, Kanye said of the final versions, “They’re way produced—far from any bootleg, from any hacker. [A] Hacker, man, they can’t give you what I’ma give you, once it’s the whole product.”

The album cover, as it was posted on the iTunes page, had a blurred out image of what was initially reported as a banned cover [see above]. Yeezy has since released two more of his five covers for the album.

Touching on his project with Big Brother Jay-Z, called Watch the Throne, West stated that the release will be a full album, not an EP, as was initially reported. “We had done five [songs] so far, and then a few of ‘em, kind of, were out there, and I put them on my album. Sorry Jay,” he said, laughing. “But we got some more, and we going to the south of France at the end of this month just to record new ideas.” [Watch below]

“We’ll probably be done with the album in like a day, or whatever,” he claimed, nonchalantly.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is set to hit stores on November 21. —Adam Fleischer

    That first BOBW with Kells was hot but Kells and his “situation” fucked up the hype. 2nd joint was ass with all those remixes, but Hov ripped like every verse.

    It’ll be interesting to see these two niggas collab on an album…and if u think these two aint competing on this album ur kidding urself

    • gaddic

      Kanye’s been making platinum hits before being a rapper
      Even he puts down the mike he’ll still be producing classics and making hits
      Your just a cock-sucking hater

    • henryron

      some slow 15 minutes since blueprint and college dropout. sure you don’t mean wacka flacka?

      • Official Fully

        Wow, look at all these dickriders that came out to play.

        Its in the facts. No hate, I didnt say anything about his music or abilities. I said his 15 minutes is fading fast.

        Why don’t you digest it and see the meaning before you cry.

        No one knew who Kanye was before through the wire, and he didn’t even hit BIG BIG until “All Falls Down”. Then he was in super stardom.

        Check his record sales for 808′s, HALF of what he did on Late Registration.
        Then that shit he pulled with Taylor Swift. People are over Kanye. He is no longer that MEGA SUPERSTAR that he was.

        I didn’t say he can’t make music, I said his 15 is running out fast. Why don’t you lil kids grow up.

        Fully.

        • baykes

          ummm…naw bruh, you can’t explain away that stupid shit you said. It was just a dumb ass comment my nigga.

          He aint hit “BIG BIG” until All Falls down? who the fuck you know blows up before he puts out his first album (besides drake)? lmao you fuckin dizzy yo. Aint nobody worried about that old taylor swift shit…and aint nobody doing numbers now like they was 5 years ago because album sales in general is on a decline with pirates leaking everybody shit and free copies of albums available all over thousands of bit torrent sites.

          jus shut yo dumb ass up, Kanye aint goin nowhere…he finished wit his first 15 minutes back in 99, lol.

  • graphlocc

    These niggaz aint illuminati suspects, that nigga jay-z is 3rd degree master mason. Proven already, watch the dvd Jay-s hip hop’s master mason…
    N kanye is his apprentice…Why do u think they never just come out and say thats NOT what they are?
    watch kanye’s power video, and listen to his new song “hell of a life” he talks about making the devil wake with levatation…and openly admitted he sold his soul to the devil, and jay-z has a damn song called lucifer produced by kanye so they are far from suspects…
    all u people need to wake the fuck up and stop being so oblivious to whats really going on in todays world…
