Kanye West and Jay-Z EP Due Before Thanksgiving
Last month, Kanye West announces that he and his "big brother" Jay-Z were collaborating on a joint album titled 'Watch the Throne.' At the time, the Chi-town emcee was mum about details on the project's anticipated release date. However, Yeezy fans may just get an early Christmas present this year as news has spread that the album will release before 2011 hits.
According to FakeShoreDrive.com, the five-song opus will debut on November 23, just two days before the Thanksgiving holiday. For G.O.O.D. Friday devotees, that's about nine releases away. Though little is known about collaborations or future songs set to appear on the effort, listeners can rely on 'Monster' -- featuring verses from Ye, Jay, Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj -- being one of the five tracks and the first single. A proposed video for the song is reportedly in the works.
Ye is rumored to be releasing the second single from 'Watch the Throne' in about two weeks. Since Pusha T, the braided half of the Clipse, recently signed to the G.O.O.D. Music roster for a solo album deal, perhaps the song will feature a verse from him or even Charlie Wilson, who has appeared on several of Kanye's G.O.O.D. Friday creations, including 'Lord, Lord, Lord' and the fitting track 'Good Friday.'
Kanye's fifth album, 'Dark Twisted Fantasy,' which has spawned the single 'Power,' is still due out on November 16.
