Kanye West loves to talk, and now fans will have the opportunity to hear him talk in an extended listen. The mercurial rapper-producer is reportedly planning to release an entire album of spoken word content. ContactMusic reports that the project, which currently has no tentative title or release date, will be a vinyl release and will be over three hours long.

West speaks about his daughter, North, his life with fiancée Kim Kardashian and shares his views on topical issues such as the community and the environment. Apparently, there will also be an “extended” version available for digital download.

Over the past few years, Kanye has become notorious for his onstage “rants” about race, fashion and his critics. Throughout 2013, the hip-hop star became notorious for giving very candid and sometimes-odd interviews where his emotions ran the gamut from demure to raging.

“He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment,” a source says. “He’s forever recording his opinions on tape. He says he’s doing it for posterity and thought about turning them into a book or even donating them to a museum.’’
