New Kanye West album ‘Rich Black American’ hoax or real deal?

Rumors of a new Kanye West album, titled "Rich Black American" are sweeping the internet on Monday, February 4. 

The rumors stem from Twitter users who viewed a report on Complex.com, which appears to show an obscure photo of a digital track list of a Kanye West album titled "Rich Black American". The photo, the source of which is currently unconfirmed, shows the release date 2013 and seven song tracks featuring collaborations with artists such as Florence Welch, Skillrex, Beyoncé and others.

However Kanye West himself has yet to confirm, or deny, these rumors: his Twitter account however appears to have been cleaned up leaving only a few Tweets sent late in January saying "Truth," "Beauty," "Minimalism," "Emotion," "Soul," "Awesomeness" and finally "Functionality."

One of the tracks on the alleged album is titled "Perfect Bitch." This ties into reports that earlier this year Kanye played a song from his laptop at a New York party which, according to a New York Daily News report, was about finding, what Kanye charmingly termed, "the perfect bitch."

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
