West, 26, is getting the deal after seeing 450,000 copies of his recently-released album sold in just a week.

Interscope's Jimmy Iovine and Roc-A-Fella's Damon Dash are negotiating with West's manager, Benny Medina for the deal, which will include merchandising and a production clause.

In regards to the comment that was written before me....The real stupidity is people are making such a big deal over something that was said. They were just words, if you go to any poverty community I'm sure you'll hear people making that same exact comment everyday. The point is people are intilted to their opinion whether it is correct or not. There is no reason for people to get into an uproar because of a statement a man (that we expect to be a role model) made. He didn't ask for the title, and he is human. I'm sure if we opened anyones wounds, mean comments, and irate jealousy from the past, we'd all be an embarrassment to ourselves as people in general.not that it matters......(african american female college student)
