Kanye West is no stranger to controversy and limelight from his accusations of Bush as a Racist:
To the interruption of Taylor Swift at the VMA's. West has earned a name for himself by causing trouble, and with the release of his upcoming album it looks like he will hold his reputation.
What you're looking at is the album cover to his new album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" slated for release November 22. The cover is already shocking many, including Wal-Mart Executives who refuse to allow it in their stores. Kanye's response was a tweet expressing his frustration: "Banned in the USA!!! They don't want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!"
Personally, I am looking forward to the new album, because if you're like me you know behind the celebrity persona Kanye puts forth there is rock solid mc/producing talent and if Dark Twisted Fantasy is anywhere near the level of his previous releases, it's definitely an album worth looking forward to.
