An image that bears the album title 'Rich Black American' and its partial tracklist goes viral despite lacking affirmation from the G.O.O.D Music label mogul.
A screenshot of what supposedly is Kanye West's next album title complete with a partial tracklist was posted online on February 4 and is now circling the web. Reportedly titled "Rich Black American", it is still unconfirmed if it is indeed the hip-hop superstar's sixth solo album.
The alleged partially-revealed tracklist includes some of today's biggest recording artists as West's collaborators. Grammy Award-nominee Frank Ocean and West's own G.O.O.D. Music record label artist Pusha T are reportedly featured in the track "Faith", while a couple of duets are also seen, one purportedly with English singer/songwriter Florence Welch ("Popular") and the other with current toast of the town Beyonce Knowles following her show-stopping Super Bowl performance ("Whole Lifetime").
Although it may all just be a hoax, a couple of details suggest some possibility. The single "Perfect Bitch" appears in the song list, a song which West wrote for girlfriend Kim Kardashian, as he revealed last year in August via Twitter. The track "Need Somebody" is also included, featuring hip-hop recording artist 2 Chainz, rapper Big Sean, and electronic musician Skrillex, who disclosed last year that he was working with West.
While all of this remains to be seen, 2013 is already looking to be a busy year for West. He is reportedly teaming up with Justin Timberlake on a track for the latter's "The 20/20 Experience" album. He is also set to headline the 2013 Governors Ball summer fest along with Kings of Leon. On top of all that, the 35-year-old superstar is going to be a father by middle of this year when Kardashian finally gives birth to their child.
