It looks like Kanye West is preparing an album to exceed epic proportions this time. The rapper’s third single, “All of The Lights,” will feature 11 major artists.

Rap-Up.com was in the house at Monday night’s screening of his short film Runaway in Los Angeles where he revealed the eleven names that contributed to the super-=sized track. They are Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Elton John, Fergie, John Legend, The-Dream, Tony Williams, Kid Cudi, Charlie Wilson, Ryan Leslie, and La Roux’s Elly Jackson.

He described the combo as “completely seamless and completely ghetto as f**k.” He took bits and pieces from each artist, so don’t necessarily expect to hear full verses. [Rap-Up]

Well, damn! This record will appear on Kanye’s fifth album, My Dark Twisted Fantasy, and will also be featured in the Runaway feature premiering Saturday, October 23, at 8 p.m. EST.

Mr. West sure has been packing a lot of features on some of these records. Are these sardine tracks really adding anything necessary to the music or is this all a big gimmick? We’ll all have to see if the song lives up to it’s hype when it drops.
