Speaking to press, Bartels was full of praise for the music producer-rapper whose ability at making hit songs on music software has made him one of the most successful musicians in recent times.

Bartels said: "Kanye's genius has been proven time and time again on records and onstage.

"He not only pours it out for himself, but he has made the difference with his presence on innumerable projects with other artists who are indebted to him."

He went on to say that West would be an "integral core member" of the Def Jam family.

My Beautiful Dark twisted Fantasy is Kanye West's latest studio album.

Rolling Stone magazine describe it as is his most maniacally inspired music yet, coasting on heroic levels of dementia, pimping on top of Mount Olympus.
