Kanye West's next album: 26 possible titles
In case you hadn't guessed by now, Kanye West will not relent, he will not back down, he will not take a non-working vacation, he will not seclude himself on a remote island in a toga with Buddhist monks or exploit his life story in self-help book form or film a Twitter infomercial.
No, West will drop Watch The Throne with mentor Jay-Z this spring, then, come summer, he'll risk the good will of fans, critics, and recovering douchebags alike by turning around and dropping another solo album less than a year after My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy stoked the popular imagination and underperformed at retail. The 2011 hip-hop arms race just got a lot more interesting.
Now the question is: what's he gonna call it?
A few suggestions, any of which West's free to use -- no, really, this one's on us.
