Kanye West and Chris Martin Collaboration Coming Soon

I was excited after merely hearing rumors about a Kanye West and Chris Martin collaboration, so now that the news has been confirmed, I have very high hopes for this interesting (and handsome) partnership. According to NME, West and Coldplay's Martin are teaming up on a track called "Graduation," which will appear on West's third album, due out in September.

Also called Graduation, the new album is West's first since 2005's groundbreaking Late Registration. Martin already honed his hip-hop chops on "Beach Chair," a track off Jay-Z's Kingdom Come, and Kanye, of course, is no stranger to collaborations, remixes, and other musical dabbling. Let's just hope his song with Martin is better than his somewhat unnecessary remix of T-Pain's "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')" — though I think it's hilarious that he references "Run's House." To hear Kanye's latest remix,

Thanks to Idolator for posting the track.

This should be good! I haven't heard Chris Martin's track with Jay-Z fact, it's hard for me to imagine Chris Martin even attempting hip-hop. Not so much because Coldplay's music contrasts that of Jay-Z and Kanye West's so, but moreso because Chris Martin comes off as a total geek (at least that's how it seems in between songs). Should be interesting... I think I need to hear "Beach Chair."

Kanye's been kinda quiet lately. Anyone else think he's going to come back with all the cocky attitude he had last time?
