Its tough keeping up 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 bulletins and Twitter rows( part 1)
After releasing a brand-new racetrack, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another brand-new track, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that moment, his forthcoming album was due to be called Swish( changing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its maker 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 activity, the book launch was to be combined with a present 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 sequences on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the brand-new album would now be called Ripples rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa indicated hed pinched the brand-new identify from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to examine 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 elicited a most peculiar replies 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( 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 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 Guardians Dave Schilling celebrated: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a carton full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive explanations written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of abusing 37 females is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better road to distract attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new deed in less than a month. 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 epic of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
