Kanye West has reportedly finished recording his sixth studio album and it appears he may have another hit on his hands as his record label, Def Jam, are said to have “loved it” after a first listen although it may shock some fans as it has been described as “dark.”
The 'Mercy' rapper has spent several months in Paris working hard on the follow-up to 2011's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,' meaning long spells away from his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian.

It appears all the hard work has paid off as Kanye is said to have finally completed the album in time for the baby's birth in July, and his record label are reportedly pleased with his new material.
Hot 97's DJ Paul Rosenberg claims he has been lucky enough to listen to the record ahead of its release.
“Everyone at the label that listened to the album loved it. I've heard it's dark, but really good,” the DJ said on his radio show. Little is known about the LP, but Daft Punk confirmed earlier this month that they had been working with Kanye on a couple of tracks.
“It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas Bangalter told Rolling Stone magazine. “Kanye doesn't give a f**k.”
In March, Kanye confirmed during one of his concerts that he will be releasing new material ahead of the summer. “I wanna tell y'all that I'm working on some new s**t. It's gonna be out in a couple of months,” the rapper said at the Zenith in Paris.
