Kanye West Plans Spoken Word Album

Kanye WestKanye West is planning to release a spoken word album.

The "Bound 2" hitmaker will reportedly make the three-hour recording available on vinyl, and it will feature everything from his views on the environment to life with fiancee Kim Kardashian and their 10-month-old daughter North.

"Kanye loves the sound of his own voice and this will be the ultimate in self-indulgence. He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment. He's forever recording his opinions on tape. He says he's doing it for posterity and thought about turning them into a book or even donating them to a museum," a source said.

Kanye is said to be excited by the "groundbreaking" record and has set his sights on it winning awards. "Kanye likes to push the boundaries and thinks this is very groundbreaking. He's hoping it'll win him a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album," the source added.

And for fans who are particularly enamored by the project, there will be a special extended version of the album available for download. "What's more, he's planning on making 24 hours of his speech recording available to download so fans can listen to his views round the clock."
