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 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 moment, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( replacing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its manufacturer 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 work, the album launching was to be combined with a substantiate for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinema worldwide. Of course.
You would think, with all 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 brand-new book would now be called Motions rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa suggested hed pinched the new mention from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to ascertain enticement 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 provoked 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 “king arthurs round table”, I tell you.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter rows( parts two and three) and the album launch
Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tame 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 exactly that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Trustee Dave Schilling mentioned: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a casket full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive proclamations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of abusing 37 wives is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better space to distract attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third 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 announced Swish. Surely that would be it for the epic of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
