Kanye West Continues Quest for World Domination

2008_02_kanye_tour.gifLove him or hate him, you can't deny Kanye West has a certain flare. Proving himself to a more prolific blogger than Steve Johnson (and more entertaining, too), Kanye has dropped a few details about an upcoming tour. He'll be touring with fellow Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco, supporting his recently released (and excellent record The Cool), along with Rihanna, and Neptunes side project N.E.R.D. Whatever you think of Mr. West, that lineup is nothing to sneeze at. We also dig that Star Wars/Max Headroom promo poster you can see over to the right.

While we were once waiting with baited breath for the official tour dates, we're now just annoyed that Kanye still hasn't gotten around to updating us, no matter how many times we hit the refresh button.

In other news from the Kanye-verse, he recently popped up at Chicago indie rapper Kid Sister's recent show at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, joining her on the track "Pro Nails" and then performing a few of his own songs. And don't forget, Kanye is also up for 8 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, on February 10.

Thanks, Marcus!
