"I changed my album to November something cause I finished the album and I felt like it," the rapper revealed recently on his personal blog. "I want y’all to hear it as soon as possible."
This decision squashes any rumours that West would be having an album sales rematch with 50 Cent, whose fourth LP, Before I Self-Destruct, was slated to be released a week before 808s & Heartbreak on December 9th.
Last year 50's album Curtis dropped on the same day as Kanye's Graduation and 50 vowed that he would retire if 'Ye outsold him in first week sales. Kanye wound up winning the battle, selling a whopping 957,000 units to 50 Cent's 691,000. Ye's first single off the new project, "Love Lockdown," currently holds the number 1 spot on iTunes' top songs list.

Kamangu, who claimed to have been the estranged husband of Wanjiru, died at Kenyatta National Hospital from abdominal pains.
He rose to fame last year after went to court to challenge Wanjiru’s planned marriage to South African preacher Samuel Matjeke, claiming that he was her husband and had sired two sons with her.
We know that big brotha Safaricom kinda lengad Zain when they introduced the Vuka tariff of 8 bop across all networks, but people-can they really continue lengaing such offers? At the end of the day, something's gotta give.

A leading American author has been detained by immigration authorities as he tried to launch a book smearing our man Barack Obama. Jerome Corsi was this morning being held after failing to get the proper papers allowing him to conduct business in our country. The dude had been planning to launch his book, entitled The Obama Nation Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, before travelling to one of Nairobi’s slums to donate money to the Senator’s half-brother George, who he claims in living in squalid conditions in Nairobi. Incidentally, this dude was going to donate 1,000 US dollars to George. I can't help but wonder; is that all McCain could afford? LOL! Dude forgot we're Kenyans baby - the most dedicated people on the planet! We can't sell Obama - he's not for sale, he's the next president of the US of A.
In the promotional literature for his book, Dr Corsi promised to reveal sinister links between Kenyan politicians and Mr Obama. "Dr Corsi will also expose details of deep secret ties between US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and a section of Kenya government leaders, their connection to certain sectoral groups in Kenya and subsequent plot to be executed in Kenya should Senator Obama win the American presidency," it said.
We only have one thing to say to Dr. Corsi, "WEWE NA MCCAIN WAKO MSHINDWE!"

Now that oxygen supply has been cut, is our gal goin' to suffocate. Anywayz, I checked out the Big Brotha website just to find out how peeps in Africa voted, and I was shocked that you guyz wanted Munya out..wharrrr? Anywayz, here's a breakdown of how the continent voted:
Munya was voted out by Angola, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, and the 13th vote composed of the rest of Africa.
Uti lost by just one vote: he had Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe against him.
Ricco got no votes. (This Ricco dude should be called Ricco Suave - he's a sneaky bastard who might just win this thing)
