The Bret Easton Ellis novel “American Psycho” depicts the tongue-in-cheek lifestyle of conspicuous money makers, so it makes sense that high fashion luxury rap artist Kanye West would reference it as the rumored title of his next studio album “Black American Psycho,” right?
Not so fast.
Apparently the website named Blackamericanpsycho.com is a psychotic swarm of not true rumors (that we kind of wish were real) which include that the site was registered by Kanye’s label Def Jam Records and that it’s to be released on October 23.
The anonymous site owner has come clean and posted this message: "This website is in no way affiliated with Def Jam Records or Kanye West. The Black American Psycho title and the 10.23.2012 release date are fictitious."
The creator clarifies further saying, "I created the website a while ago as part of a school project. I apologise for misleading people, I did not expect the site to generate so much traffic and be taken seriously."
Fans were quick to jump on the alleged rumors because when it comes to the ACTUAL album details, they have been very few and far between. All we know of the meticulous musician is that he’s been working on his still unnamed album for a year now.
Though he’s still releasing music under his G.O.O.D. Music label, most recently the compilation album Cruel Summer which features a clique of acts including 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Big Sean, R. Kelly, John Legend, and Watch the Throne co-king Jay-Z.
