Kanye West joins Twitter, uses exclamation points; Dylan and Neil Young look back; Eminem still No. 1

kanye westKanye West and Aziz Ansari are going to tweet at each other so, so much.

By David Malitz

- Are you ready for six full weeks of all Kanye, all the time? After his Facebook freestyle the other day, Yeezy joined Twitter on Wednesday. So far it's mostly shout outs to publications that have written about him and exclamation point-filled tweets about how many followers he has. What an age we live in. He did reveal that his Sept. 14 album will, sadly, no longer be called "Good Ass Job."

- Get ready for new, old music from a pair of rock's most legendary living legends. The ninth volume of Bob Dylan's revelatory bootleg series will be released in October, containing unreleased studio recordings from 1962-1964. You can also look forward to mono CD reissues of his first eight albums, just in case you haven't already bought them in enough formats already. The second volume of Neil Young's archives is on the way, with no hard release date. It will contain a trio of unreleased albums from the 1970s as well as live recordings from a 1976 tour with Crazy Horse. Young will also have a new, Daniel Lanois-produced album out in the fall. He previewed many of the songs on a spring tour.

- That's five weeks in a row atop the Billboard charts for Eminem. He barely held off Rick Ross, whose album "Teflon Don" came in at No. 2 with 176,000 sold, just short of Eminem's 187,000.
