Turns out our boy Kanye got himself arrested at LAX airport today after a little altercation with a pap who had got a lil too close the Love Lockdown rapper. TMZ were also in the area and they too started to film Kanye’s lil tirade and got into a further altercation with the rappers assistant. Both Kanye and his assistant were booked and allegedy charged with vandalism. All this excitement a year to the day since he went head to head with 50.
Kanye’s performance at the VMA’s has sparked some speculation as to if he is really working on an album, how the fu*k he has time to do so, and what it would be called. In news a few weeks back, Kanye was slated to produce the entire Blueprint 3, and word is he’s still doing that. At the same time, he’s working on new music for his own fourth album. The first single, “Love Lockdown,” was put up on the site earlier today, and sounds like very different territory for Kanye. The album is rumored to feature a bit more of the vocoder and a lot of love-themed tracks. Supposedly Kanye’s done four tracks so far, and he’s working on completing the rest.
The name of the album is rumored to be titled 808’s & Heartbreak. Maybe Ye’s still a bit sour after his breakup from his fiance a few months back. Either way, one thing’s for sure – Kanye’s innovative musical ear and knack for catchy lyrics will definitely make his fourth album a hit. And if anyone doubts that Ye puts in work, he just stuck a proverbial foot up your mouth. Look for the album to hit stores on December 16th on Def Jam/GOOD.
