Kanye West Creates Mega All-Star Record With Alicia Keys, Elton John And Rihanna
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.
