Rappers Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and producer Pharrell Williams could be releasing their first collective album as soon next year - if they ever find time to get together in the studio. Hip-hop star Fiasco has been friends with West since their early days in the rap underground, and after the positive reaction to their collaboration with The Neptunes producer Williams on the mixtape track Us Placers earlier this year, the trio plan to release a full record as a supergroup.

He says, "It's a little project that me, Kanye, and Skateboard P (Williams) sat down and was like, 'Yo let's do a group.' Us Placers, was the first record we came out with. Now we sitting down deciding if we really going to go hard or not, but we working on some surprises. It depends what it sounds like. We gotta make some more records. Everybody is mad busy, Kanye is doing his record, Pharrell's in the studio, I'm working on my record, so we gonna wait til everything settles down some."

The trio have so far been referred to as Child Rebel Soldier in the media, but the reports are unconfirmed.
