Kanye Flips The Script

After originally being scheduled for a December 16th release date, hip-hop superstar Kanye West is now planning to drop his highly anticipated fourth studio album, 808s & Heartbreak a month early.

“I changed my album to November something cause I finished the album and I felt like it,” the rapper revealed today (September 24) on his personal blog. “I want yall to hear it as soon as possible.”

This decision squashes any rumors that West would be having a SoundScan rematch with 50 Cent, whose fourth LP, Before I Self-Destruct, was slated to be released a week before 808s & Heartbreak on December 9th.
