Recently Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Kanye (all known by first names) announced their upcoming albums. Beyonce announced that her 3rd solo album will be released on November 17th. Two singles are already ready to impact radio on October 7th. One entitled Single Ladies and the other “If I Were A Boy” which a video is being shot for in New York.  After Beyonce has all her shine next in line is Kanye who will be releasing his album a MONTH later, December 16th to be exact. His 4th solo album will be 808’s and Heartbreak and here is the cover art for the first single:

“Love Lockdown” was premiered at the 2008 VMA’s and should be available on iTunes this week. But wait the trilogy would not be complete without Jay-Z.  Jay is completing a trilogy of his own with his next album The Blueprint 3. Of course the first single was produced by Kanye and “Jockin Jay-Z (Dope Boy Fresh)” was premiered on Kanye’s New York stop of the Glow In The Dark Tour.

The hit single “Swagga Like Us” which features and is produced by Kanye West, will be on both T.I.‘s Paper Trail and Jay’s The Blueprint 3. Sources say that Jay-Z will be releasing his album in December or January right after Kanye’s.

I now see how Barack Obama is taking over the nation. After sitting out in the hot sun at a football stadium at Dublin Coffman High School in Dublin, Ohio waiting to hear Obama speak, I now see why he is going to be the next president, he is truly inspirational. Oprah, Kanye, MJB, and Forest Whitaker were also inspired by Barack Obama:

And who said Oprah didn’t like rappers? Her and Kanye seem pretty close with one another.
