About four months ago, Kanye West randomly announced that he will be dropping an album this winter titled 808’s & Heartbreak. While the announcement caught everyone off guard, the details were even more startling. The album was to said have little to no rapping, and be complete autotune. As soon as the buzz started to pop off from “Love Lockdown” and “Heartless”, the release date was moved up to November 25th; the same day as Ludacris’ Theater of the Mind album. Eventually both albums got the green light for a November 24th release, but the question was, will Kanye’s experimental album flop and how will it effect Ludacris’ sales?
