In other Yeezy news, West's highly-anticipated new album 'Dark Twisted Fantasy' has reportedly cost Def Jam over $3 million to record and produce, and the marketing and promotion have not yet even begun.
With costly recording sessions in a mansion in Hawaii and Jimi Hendrix's Electric Lady recording studio in New York, and guest appearances by the likes of Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and more, the star-studded new album will likely be the year's most expensive album to record.
Also reportedly included in the bill are two private chefs, who have been employed by Kanye, traveling with him throughout the recording of his album. Kanye performed a new song from the album entitled 'Runaway' at the MTV Video Music Awards last week, and has filmed a 40-minute film to accompany the the song. Cha-ching!
'Dark Twisted Fantasy' is scheduled for a November 16 release date.
