Insanely popular dubstep lightning-rod Skrillex has some interesting news regarding a possible new Kanye West album: "I did some music with Kanye, and from what I know, it's actually going to be the first song on his new album." If this is true, it's probably the first time in recorded human history that Kanye has found himself playing catch-up to Korn.

Of course, lots of people have claimed to be working with Kanye in the past, and not all of those proclamations come to pass. And this quote, from a recent Daily Beast Skrillex profile, is, after all, the first we've heard of an impending Kanye solo album. But Kanye has nerded out on Twitter over Skrillex remixes in the past, and "Watch The Throne" had a couple of big honking dubstep drops on it. So this is entirely possible, and I think it could turn out pretty badass.

I'm not a fan of this collab because I hate Kanye's attitude. However I do actually enjoy Skrillex. Not many know that he use to be a singer in a rock band called From First to Last. People can complain whether dubstep is music or not (and some of it isnt') but it really is. Critics even complained about Wolfgang A. Mozart's work when he was writing music.
