All day, reports have been swirling around the blogosphere of a possible sixth studio LP from Kanye West titled Black American Psycho, with a registered domain displaying the image pictured above. Going further, HipHopWired reported the following:
According to the website www.blackamericanpsycho.com, which is a domain owned by Def Jam Records, Kanye will be dropping what is allegedly is sixth studio album on October 23rd, 2012. Reports are surfacing that the number of artists that flew to Hawaii last month to finish Cruel Summer were actually on the island to work on Black American Psycho and not the group’s compilation album."
While a new Kanye West album would be especially amazing following the release of Cruel Summer, it appears the rumors are false, with the domain www.blackamericanpsycho.com now displaying the following message:
This website is in no way affiliated with Def Jam Records or Kanye West. The Black American Psycho title and the 10.23.2012 release date are fictitious. I apologise for misleading people, I did not expect the site to generate so much traffic and be taken seriously."
For the time being, a sixth LP from 'Ye is unconfirmed, but there's always the possibility that he is in fact prepping a new studio effort. Stay tuned for more information.
