Add Kanye West to the list of artists previewing their new CDs on MySpace Music. The 31-year-old rapper's "808s & Heartbreak" doesn't come out until Monday, but fans have been able to hear the entire CD starting Friday.

West is the latest act to debut a CD on MySpace before its official release. Guns 'N Roses, Paul McCartney and Beyonce have all done the same. The Killers will do so on Saturday with their CD, "Day & Age."

It has become a regular practice to offer some kind of live stream of new CDs in the days before their release on one Web site.
