Its tough keeping pace 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 notices and Twitter sequences( part one)
After releasing a brand-new trail, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another brand-new trail, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that item, his forthcoming album was due to be called Swish( ousting the previous So Help Me God ), and was its creator 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 book propel was to be combined with a show for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinemas worldwide. Of course.
You would think, with everything 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 Waves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa intimated hed pinched the new appoint from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to visualize 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 response 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 round table, I tell you.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter sequences( personas two and three) and the album launch
Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tamed sometimes. So why not tweet your support for “the mens” at the center of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do simply that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Guardian Dave Schilling discovered: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a box full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive accounts written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 females is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better direction to divert attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new claim in less than a few months. Now it was to be called The Life of Pablo. Half the tracklist had changed from when it was announced Swish. Surely that would be it for the story of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
