WEST EYES HIP-HOP TOUR

Kanye West is making plans for a star-studded hip-hop tour with Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, following his doomed joint trek with pop star Lady Gaga.

The rapper planned to share the stage with the Poker Face hitmaker for their Fame Kills tour last year (09) but they called off the shows, citing "creative differences".

West is preparing to hit the road again - but this time he's adamant he'll only recruit hip-hop stars to join the bill.

He tells MTV.com, "One thing though that I'm gonna do, especially with my tour this time, is I'm gonna keep it very, very, very hip-hop.

"Tour is like church almost. It doesn't really work if you got a Muslim-Christian church... What I figured out is I'm gonna keep the church really hip-hop."

And he admits his dream line-up would include rappers Jay-Z and Lil Wayne.

He adds: "I would definitely like to bring Nicki Minaj on tour, Rick Ross, Kid Cudi... I'd like to do different tours... I'd like to do a tour with me and Jay (Jay-Z). I think that's an obvious winner right there. A tour with me and Wayne, maybe me, Wayne, Jay and Drake."
