Its tough keeping pace with “the worlds” of Kanye West. So let us take the hard work out of it and present to you the highlights of a jam-packed 12 months of megalomania
January: Album proclamations and Twitter rows( part 1)
After releasing a new line, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another brand-new trail, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that phase, his forthcoming album was due to be called Swish( replacing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its make said the best album of all time. On 26 January, he announced he would be premiering it at Madison Square Garden in New York. Never one to shun cross-promotional activity, the book launch was to be combined with a establish for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinema 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 album would now be called Wavings rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa indicated hed pinched the new identify from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to realize 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 books the whole way through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which precipitated 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 rows( divisions 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 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 saw: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a box full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive affirmations written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of raping 37 maidens is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better path to divert attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third new name in less than a month. 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 tale of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
