As September 11 nears, the pomp and circumstance surrounding Kanye West’s Graduation keeps getting bigger.

West, who will grace the cover of Paste’s upcoming issue, already had famous singers (Chris Martin, T-Pain), famous artists (Takashi Murakami) and famous robots/DJs (Daft Punk) involved with his new album, but apparently he’s not done. Less than a month before the record’s release, MTV.com is reporting that Lil’ Wayne will make an appearance with West on a newly announced track, “Barry Bonds,” which uses the new baseball homerun king as a metaphor for West’s ability to create music hits (the chorus goes: “Here’s another hit, Barry Bonds.”)
