Kanye West Album Leak and his Today Show Appearance with Matt Lauer

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is the name of the album and it seems that Kanye West fans have something to look forward to a little earlier than expected before its scheduled release date of November 22. The album features a number of guest artists, including Rihanna, Fergie, Elton John, Pusha T, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Raekwon, Gil Scott Heron, and Kid Cudi.

The album release of course comes with some controversy. The orignal album cover, pictured here, that has been banned. Perhaps its more suited for an art museum in someone's eye's??? Kanye is scheduled to appear on the Today Show with a live concert on Friday, November 26th, the day after Thanksgiving.

Below is Kanye West's recent appearance on the Today Show. Matt Lauer asks Kanye about his "George Bush doesn't care about black people" declaration from the Red Cross Katrina Telethon from 2005 and the Taylor Swift-MTV Video Music Awards incident. Kanye flips out on the Today Show producers for running the Taylor Swift clip as he was responding to Lauer's question.

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
