Kanye West New Album Release Date Confirmed

Good Ass Job is coming soon, ish…

Kanye West’s fifth album Good Ass Job will be released on September 14 this year, according to reports.

The record was originally due later in the year but has now been pushed forward. It will be the first album West has released since his 808s & Hearthaches album in late 2008.
 
The first single from the album Power- which samples prog-rockers King Crimson- leaked last month. It suggests the Chicago native is returning to his rapping roots after using autotuned singing on his last LP.
 
Last night Kanye performed the song at the B.E.T Awards in a typically bombastic performance.
 
He appeared rapping alone on top of a fake volcano with clouds, snow and mountains on a video behind.
 
Reports have claimed that the star has turned to other producers for Good Ass Job’ beats- including Q-Tip, Wu Tang man RZA and DJ Premier.
