Video: Kanye Performing Love Lockdown Live On Kimmel + Listening Session Review...

808's & Heartbreak November 25th

Heres some accounts of the whole ordeal Via Myspace and The Fader Magazine respectively:

" Would you judge a grandmother’s love? Give it 2.5 mics out of 5?… If I wanna rap, I’ll rap. If I wanna sing, I’ll sing. I told Jay, LA Reid and everyone at my label that I needed to put this out right now, I’ll have another album in June, but this has to come out right now... "

" After waiting in a loading area with an open bar and a DJ, we walked up a driveway illuminated by florescent lights to a darkened room where approximately forty nude women, most of them wearing face-obscuring masks seemingly made of faux lamb’s wool, stood in the middle—black girls in the front, white girls in the back. Then the entire album played without introduction or explanation. The women were backlit by glowing lights—mostly red and purple, sometimes strobing, often pulsing and sporadically illuminating. "

So we know once again that our invite was somehow shuffled and lost in the behemoth that is known as the U.S Postal System. Judging on that quote above and the spectacle that was the listening session from these accounts 808's & Heartbreak serves as a period piece in Kanye's life. Being so non-vocal about his relationship with his beau and the passing of Dr. Donda West, Kanye really must have felt the need to culminate his passion and serve it as a work within the vehicle that has granted him some form of stability and serenity while facing these tumultuous last two years.

Chuuch. At least if we don't see his vision he has hinted at a new album within the first six months of 2009! Beat that Curtis Jackson!

We will have a clip of the listening session shortly.
