There is news going around that Kanye West may be planning a spoken word album. No, we don't mean like a rap album – think audio book. Except it won't be of him reading off Harry Potter or anything; the album will probably feature the best of Kanyeisms known to mankind, spanning familial, political, and environmental topics.

The Bound 2 singer will apparently make a thee-hour recording of his Yeezus-sent views. Can you imagine listening to Kanye's wisdom for three. Whole. Hours? Must buy.

Is Kanye really trying to join the likes of Stephen Colbert, Betty White, and Barack Obama as a winner of the Grammy Award for Best Spoken Album? Confirmation about the legitimacy of this news eludes us, although it's not like we'd put a self-indulgent act like this past Kanye.
