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 edicts and Twitter rows( part one)
After releasing a new racetrack, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new trail, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that time, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( 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 act, the album propel was to be combined with a indicate 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 rows on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the new album would now be called Waves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa proposed hed pinched the brand-new identify from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to look 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 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 sequences( proportions 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 is supportive of “the mens” at the centre of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do exactly that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Keeper Dave Schilling mentioned: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a carton full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive proclamations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 girls is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better way to distract attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third new title 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 saga of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
