Kanye West's upcoming projects have been a bit more secretive since the super producer stopped tweeting photos of himself at work on new music, but according to tweets from Young Money rapper Short Dawg, Kanye has been spending some time in the studio with Lil Wayne. On Sunday (Jan. 9) Short Dawg took to Twitter to alert his followers that Kanye and Wayne were at work on new music, writing, "#Studio w/ @liltunechi @mackmaine & @kanyewest ... the moment before it happens." The Young Money rapper didn't reveal any further details on the collaboration, but the new track will likely appear on Wayne's upcoming album 'Tha Carter IV.' Following his release from jail, Wayne dropped his single '6 Foot 7 Foot' featuring Cory Gunz, from the highly anticipated album.

Tiret has a nice little thing going for itself when it comes to high-status celebs who want some of them, on their wrist. I previously wrote about a watch that Tiret made for Usher here. The same concept (but done differently) was applied to a watch for musician Kanye West. You have the same oblong "Second Chance" watch case design, in 18k yellow gold. Coming with a gold bracelet or reptile strap, Kanye seems to be enjoying his (as he seems to wear it a lot).

By Rahman Dukes Kanye West rang in the New Year with a surprise performance and a little booty shaking to his personal selection of hip hop hits. Just before waving goodbye to an all-star 2010 and ushering in 2011 Kanye West returned to his Twitter account after a minor hiatus giving an indication of what he was listening to while ringing in the new year. From Trey Songz to Lil Wayne to Waka Flocka Flame, Kanye appeared to be having a G.O.O.D 'ole time. "RUNAWAY LOVE REMIX ON THE RADIO! RAEKWON VERSES CRAZE CAN WE PLEASE TOAST TO THE MUTHAF*CKIN DOUCHEBAGS TONIGHT!!!" West tweeted. Raekwon in return saluted West back for the shout out "@kanyewest my dude happy new year and thx for everything!" said Rae. 'Ye was in Sin City last night alongside big brother Jay-Z for the grand opening of Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. The venue held a New Year’s Eve bash with Hov on the bill that also featured Beyonce, Coldplay's Chris Martin and more. Following his performace the self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton don grabbed Diddy's attention after shouting him out on the social network. "NOW PLAYING LOVING YOU NO MORE! DIRTY MONEY" said West. The infamous party mogul was on hand for Kanye and Hov's show and returned a tweet back at West. "@kanyewest thanks for the LOVE!!!!" Diddy tweeted. "thank you for being you! happy new year! GOD BLESS!!!! Meet you at the top!!!!!!!" West has managed to keep a relatively low profile since the release of his critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album back in November. The last month of 2010 has been an active one for the producer releasing the Diplomats collaboration "Christmas In Harlem" and working on two separate videos for "Monster" and "All of The Lights." Before disappearing for the night West reminded his followers why they fell in love with his ever-entertaining tweets from the jump. "Can't Tell me Nothing on the Radio... Jordan 3s on my feet! Hands in the f*ckin sky," said West. "I KNOW YALL MISSED THESE LUXURY TWEETS."

Kanye West featuring Pusha T, Cyhi the Prynce, Big Sean, and J.Cole   Looking For Trouble This week’s dose of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Friday  entitled, “Looking For Trouble”, came on a Saturday morning as opposed to a Friday night as a result of J.Cole’s verse that was added in the wee hours of the night; the Roc Nation artist’s verse not only appears last on the song but is also arguably the strongest. Also featured on the song are G.O.O.D. music signees Pusha T, Cyhi the Prynce, and Big Sean. “Looking For Trouble” is definitely one of the more lyrical G.O.O.D. Friday songs and is definitely worth a listen after the jump… Read the rest of: Kanye West featuring Pusha T, Cyhi the Prynce, Big Sean, and J.Cole – Looking For Trouble

Kanye West Featuring Pete Rock, Charlie Wilson, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, and Curtis Mayfield   The Joy Few names scream “hip-hop” as loudly as Pete Rock, who in interviews said that he was thrilled that he was chosen to produce two tracks on the forthcoming from Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. It’s not yet clear if this track will be on the album, yet this has throwback written all over it, with an-all star cast of Jay-Z, Curtis Mayfield, Kid Cudi, and Charlie Wilson. Pete Rock contributes his trademark ad-libs over his sparsely-constructed Curtis sample. These G.O.O.D. Friday releases have featured a slew of guest spots, but this one is a old schooler’s dream with Jay-Z and Kanye spittin’ over a Pete Rock banger. Download the track after the jump.
