Up until the release of “Forever,” Drake was doubted by the people who called themselves true hip hop heads. They said that his style would never make it and that he was better off sticking to acting. But, a lot of these critics shut up when Kanye West came out and endorsed the young star. Even though his last album was an R&B album, people still respected the opinion of Kanye, at the time.
Over the past few months, people have begun to realize that Drake is going to be a force in the game for years to come. Now, the opinion of Drake is well-respected by the people of the hip hop community. This is because he can easily become one of the top R&B singers in the game without using the auto-tune. But, with Kanye West ranting and raving, he lost a lot of points with onetime die hard fans.
His actions have cost him a lot, but his decision to go R&B on his last album is what did it for a lot of Kanye West fans. Last year, he was supposed to have returned with a rap album, but his mic-stealing incident led to those plans being halted. Now, with the attention off of him, Kanye has made plans to release his next album. It will pick up where 2007’s Graduation left off with him now being a part of the work force.
The album will be centered on Kanye West trying to find a Good Ass Job. For collaborations, he is doing like the rest of hip hop and going after Drake. Not only does Drake rap and sing, but he also produces, so that is a major plus for the also multitalented Kanye West. The album is currently in its early stages and Drake has been able to hear some of it. From what he has heard, he feels that the album will go down in history as one of the best albums ever.
Kanye West plans to release Good Ass Job during the summer of 2010 on G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam.
