Its tough keeping up with the world of Kanye West. So let us take the hard work out of it and present to you the highlights of a packed 12 months of megalomania
January: Album announcements and Twitter sequences( part 1)
After releasing a brand-new trail, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new line, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that detail, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( superseding the previous So Help Me God ), and was its producer said the best album of all time. On 26 January, he announced he “wouldve been” premiering it at Madison Square Garden in New York. Never one to shun cross-promotional pleasure, the album opening was to be combined with a present for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinemas worldwide. Of course.
You would think, with all that to take care of, West might have better things to do than having sequences on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the new book would now be called Movements rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa hinted hed pinched the new epithet from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to experience bait without taking it, West piled in. Your first single was corny as fuck and most there after No one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which prompted a most peculiar replies from Khalifas girlfriend( and Wests ex ), Amber Rose: Are u mad Im not around to play in ur asshole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch. Its just like the Algonquin “king arthurs round table”, I tell you.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter sequences( roles two and three) and the book launch
Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tamed sometimes. So why not tweet your is supportive of the man at the centre of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do only that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Defender Dave Schilling mentioned: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a box full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive explanations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 ladies is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better style to divert attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third new entitle in less than a month. Now it was to be called The Life of Pablo. Half the tracklist had changed from when it was called Swish. Surely that would be it for the saga of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
