Kanye West has pledged to step back from music for at least a year because he fears fans are getting bored of him. West has decided his regular contributions to other artists' songs are weakening his brand name and he will wait until next year before he ventures back onto the charts with a new album.
He says, "It's all about falling back sometimes, so people will miss it. "I'm not dropping until another year, at least. Ya'll don't need it right now. "There's only so much room in the CD changer. I'm on Game's album and I'm on Nas' album." (Source)
