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 jam-packed 12 months of megalomania
January: Album announcements and Twitter sequences( part one)
After releasing a brand-new way, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new line, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that item, his forthcoming album was due to be called Hiss( supplanting the previous So Help Me God ), and was its manufacturer said the best book 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 act, the book opening was to be combined with a picture 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 something better to do than having sequences on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the brand-new album would now be called Wavings rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa indicated hed pinched the new refer from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to verify 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 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( duties 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 centre 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 Protector Dave Schilling mentioned: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a chest full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive statements written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of raping 37 women is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better way to distract attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new name 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 called Swish. Surely that would be it for the tale of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
