  • Kanye Brings His Revolutionary Streak To Late Registration

    He's one of the best producers in the game, an MC whose talent on the mic continues to evolve and, according to Esquire magazine, one of the best-dressed men in the world. Kanye West says you can tag another title onto him: activist. He has a voice that millions listen to now, and he's not going to waste the opportunity.

    "I didn't set out to be an activist," he said recently. "I was born into it. My grandfather drove the first car in [some civil rights] marches [in the 1960s]. My grandfather said, 'We goin' in and we finnin' to sit down over here.' Like I said on the first album, my mother got arrested at 6 years old for the sit-ins.

    "My father was a former Black Panther," he added. "Now he's converted his life and he's a counselor. He's at a bunch of different jobs where his main goal is to help people and to teach, and my mother's main goal is to help people and to teach. And these two people made me. I have one of the biggest voices around, so I'm not tryin' to hurt people, I'm tryin' to help people and to teach. I can't find out some information and not tell you."

    On his third LP, tentatively titled Graduation and scheduled for release in October 2006, West says he's going get deeper with his messages. Of course, West's second LP, Late Registration, comes out on August 30 (see "Kanye's Co-Pilot, Jon Brion, Talks About The Making Of Late Registration" and "Kanye Previews New LP, Modestly Exclaims: 'This Is Killing Everything Out There!' ") and he certainly doesn't shy away from socially relevant topics, even while making you dance on tracks like his current single, "Gold Digger." On one of the verses, he raps about a man who paid child support for 18 years before finding out, on the kid's 18th birthday, that he's not actually the father.

    " 'Gold Digger' is the quintessential Kanye West record," he said. "It makes you think. Look how I break down the information on [the verse that starts with] '18 years.' That's a serious situation right there. Look how I broke down at the end how, how n---as be getting rich and leaving their black girlfriend for a white girlfriend. That's not just a rap about money and girls. And I do it in such a charming way."

    Kanye talks about his less charming qualities, his insecurities and even being called "gay" by classmates in "All Eyes On Kanye West," which airs Thursday at 10:30 p.m. on MTV. For Kanye's extended interview, log onto MTVNews.com starting at 10:30 p.m. Thursday, and read the "All Eyes On Kanye West" feature.

        that doesnt bother me much cuz College Dropout had 7 solo tracks and that was amazing

        this album has 6 (counting the bonus track "Late")

        and imo there's really like 10 solo tracks cuz i'm guessing Adam Levine will only do the hook as well as Lupe Fiasco & Brandy, and Jamie Foxx is barely in Gold Digger.............i consider Gold Digger a solo track

            im sorry, but am i the only one disappointed by the Kanye and Nas track? i can hear Nas on a beat like that from any other producer out.. I thought Kanye was gonna come with some amazing beat for him and Nas to smash on but nah.. shits OK.. nothin special, this albums gonna be weaker than the 1st i think... (and i rele liked the 1st one)

                  Kanye's a weak rapper. He needs collabos because he can't carry a track by himself.

                  I'm sure his father's proud of his Uncle Tom son.

                        Game is only doing a hook.

                        Looks like Kanye is going to overflood the album with skits again.

                          Game isnt EVEN doing a hook.
                          album is still good and i aint no dick ridder, but how they gonna keep sayin that game is featured on the song when he honestly says 10 words, 8 of which are the same ones repeated?

                          kinda seems like his name is just on there so that game fans will support maybe?? who knows
                          ima do me.
