Taylor, Trump and Twitter- a year in the life of Kanye West

Its tough keeping up 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 one)

After releasing a new trail, 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 producer said the best book 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 task, 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 rows on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the brand-new book would now be called Billows rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa suggested hed pinched the brand-new reputation from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to identify 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 provoked 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.

February: Twitter sequences( segments two and three) and the book launch

Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tame sometimes. So why not tweet your is supportive of “the mens” 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 Defender 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 proclamations written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 dames is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better direction to divert attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third new designation 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 epic of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?

Then, on 11 February, West eventually revealed the album at Madison Square Garden: he played it on his laptop from the stage, and appears to be get an email after one of the lyrics. Still, “its been” fun at the cinema, reckoned Ben Beaumont-Thomas: What may have seemed ramshackle in Madison Square Garden, or watching at home on the official brook that continued buffering due to request, took on an unguarded knockout on the big screen. Alls well that points well, then. But hang in! Whats this? Its Taylor Swifts people saying she wasnt at all glad at Kanye rapping about her: I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I moved that fucking bitch famed. West participated at the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long gossip about the ballad, and she handed her blessings. As for the album itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct lack of focus. Still, the rest of our writers liked it sufficient to make it our fourth excellent book of the year.

Youd think that would have been enough activity for one month. But you would be wrong. Eras after exhausting The Life of Pablo which by the time it arrived at the Tidal streaming service was already different to the form premiered in New York he told the world( via Twitter) that he was $53 m in debt and questioned Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg for a$ 1bn investing in his ideas: Hey, Larry Page Im down for your assistance, more. He too announced he would be exhausting another brand-new book in the summer. But he didnt. Nor did he turn out for Preston North End reservations, though in all honesty he never claimed he would do that.

March: Twitter sequences( character four) and album revises( part one)

At last-place, a breather in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with merely the one war of tweets( with Deadmau5, who was affronted when a photograph West tweeted appeared to show him expending Pirate Bay. West responded by inviting the EDM star to perform at his daughters birthday defendant with specifically a minnie mouse dead-mow-five foreman not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five leader ). He also said he might never secreted a Cd again. Perhaps “hes been” tied up at work, because despite The Life of Pablo having been liberated the month before, he was busy informing it, so whenever you logged in to Tidal you faced the prospect of listening to a different book to the one youd been listening to the day before.

April: Book modernizes( part two) and suits( part one)

Once again, appease resolved over Kanye West. He began the month by announcing that a freshly updated, remixed and remastered form of The Life of Pablo would be streaming on all major services from 1 April, though he added that hed carry on tinkering with it for the foreseeable. The trouble, though, was that in February he had told the world his album would only ever be on Tidal; love whod signed up to Tidal on that promise are less disgruntled by that development. One Justin Baker-Rhett, in fact, was so disgruntled that he launched a suit, alleging the promise of exclusive better access to Wests latest album led to an influx of brand-new Tidal subscribers and allowed the service to collect users personal information. No concern the self-evident chaos circumventing the album, though this was the month The Life of Pablo became the first book to top the US maps based primarily on streaming.

The month in a Kanye title : Bad News

May: Suits( part two) and Macca donates support

The daylights were get longer and warmer, and West was mainly remaining out of the headlines. Except when other people were putting him in their own homes. Parties such as the Hungarian rock musician Gabor Presser, who filed a suit in the US district court in Manhattan to suggest that New Slaves, from the album Yeezus, took without allow from his own 1969 chant Gyngyhaj Lny. He required $2.5 m in injuries clearly, he hadnt pictured Wests tweets about being $53 m in debt. Or people like Sir Paul McCartney, who told the world from its own position as one of the largest spokesmen for black people that Wests utilization of the N-word in his lyrics was apologized, quoting its impression in their collaboration All Day. Parties like Oprah, whos a little conservative about that trash, said, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt exploit that text. I said, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an urban generation that uses that text in a totally different mode. Its different contexts. So I was actually pleased with it.

The month in a Kanye title : Facts

June: Offset depicts( part 1) and a abuse culture video

West started getting back into the swaying of things as summertime arrived. First, a popup concert at the 1,500 -capacity Webster Hall ended in the requisite chaos after numerous thousands tried to get into the hastily planned 2am gig, developing in it being nullified and the venue being locked down by dominions. Well, he was always going to bounce back from that, which he did by unveiling the trailer to his Only One video game. The trailer boasted, as the Guardian made it at the time, an living of the Chicago rappers belatedly mother Donda West, who rides on the back of a winged white horse that is galloping through the gloom towards heaven. Just like Call of Duty. Exclusively One has been in development since 2015. It was still not in shops.

Then the moment united all been waiting for, the moment where he caused utterly unnecessary offence the release of the video for Famous( the ballad in which he said hed realized that fucking bitch Taylor Swift famed, if you echo ). The video boasted a rollcall of waxworks of fames connected in some manner with West in couch with him and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. It was a comment on renown, West supposed. Lena Dunham wasnt affected she called it one of the most disturbing aesthetic efforts in recent recall and “says its” emblematic of abuse culture. And theres more. As assaults are Periscoped across the web and girls is suicide after being exposed in ways they never imagined … While Bill Cosbys violations are still being uncovered and understanding of pain for the women he assaulted but likewise massive traumata to “the member states national” consciousness … Now I have to see the prone, instinctive, waxy bodies of famous dames, twisted like theyve been narcotic and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a repelling sense of dis-ease.

The month in a Kanye title : Guilt Trip

July: Twitter rows( component five extended to Snapchat and Instagram)

Would there be no end to the West-Swift kerfuffle? This time it was Kim Kardashian West restarting the sequence, by uploading to her Snapchat account film snippets of West and Swift on the phone considering Famous, in which she appeared to approve the song though there was no reference to the that fucking bitch position. Swift greeted, though she chose Instagram: Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me that bitch in his song? It doesnt exist because it never happened. You dont get to control people psychological response to being called that bitch in front of the whole world. Who should we call to resolve this one? Thats right solicitors. And what did they have to say? That solicitors should be involved. Because if West had recorded the call in California, without Swifts consent, he had violated the rules and could face a year in district penitentiary. The detail that West has remained unincarcerated shows, very much, that Swift remembered the lawyers could just keep out of it as far as she was concerned.

August: Dreaming of Ikea and opening popup shops

The dog days of August were free of fightings with Swift, but theres no time off when youre Kanye West. At least he got into the silly-season jive, mind you, when he told Radio 1 of his dream to pattern furniture for Ikea. Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allowed to make this thing because you know what, I miss a plot that he makes, I require a chair that he makes, West said, as he explained why students would want a dormitory room designed by him. And who the hell is we to doubt that practicality of anything designed by the man who came up with leather running pants? Ikea Australia reacted with a mockup of a Yeezy bed, big enough to recreate the Famous video. The Famous video? Gives not go back here again, delight. Meanwhile, he set about trying to clear that $53 m of debt by opening 21 popup browses around the world, selling limited-edition stock for three days only. The brand-new browses follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he said generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in sales of parts including thrift storage jackets customised by the rapper for $400, the Guardian reported. So, 21 of those, and hes merely $11 m short of be paid by his obligations. Jobs a good un. After that, inaugurating his Saint Pablo tour on a theatre that operated above the gathering, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of clouds and mellowed fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the production, is inadequate to prompt any major sequences , not insisting on his suitability to pattern space shuttles , not announcing he should be the heads of state of Ukip, or anything like that. If anything, he behaved suspiciously like a musician. The Guardian reported that the Saint Pablo appearance was merit five hotshots dynamic and compelling, dont you are familiar with? West announced that he and Drake were making an album together( seeing it the third largest album he announced in a year that verified exclusively one actually reach the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 pattern indicate, which peculiarity real beasts dressed in galoshes made from the highly treated surface of lions.( It didnt; but you believed it, didnt you ?)

The month in a Kanye title: Highlights

October: Cancelled indicates( part two) and Grammy politics( part one)

The Saint Pablo tour encountered its first glitches, when West walked off stagecoach halfway through a establish after learning that Kim had been parted from her properties at gunpoint by a mob in Paris. He then cancelled two presents, moving them to December( more on that later ). As for the robbers, they fled on bicycles. Just thought youd like to know that detail. He was seeming spunky by now, and when the Saint Pablo tour resumed, he told the crowd in Oakland how the 2017 Grammys needed to pan out: The book I listen to the most this year is Frank Oceans book. Ill tell you this right now, if his album is not nominated in no categories, Im not showing up to the Grammys. As creators, weve got to come together to fight the bullshit. This was only consistent with his programme on gives happenings, which has usually consisted of publicly excusing sometimes to the recipients face, while they received their award why he thought someone else should have got the gong.

November: Nullified sees( constituent three) and Trump time( part 1)

There will be no armchair diagnosis here, but goodness knows November was not a great month in Westworld. Addressing the crowd at his San Jose show, he said he hadnt voted in the presidential election, but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. The mob was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they acquired round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would push prejudiceds into the open. A few weeks later, in Sacramento, he launched into a rant against Beyonc, Hillary Clinton, radio stations and Mark Zuckerberg. He managed to play three anthems before moving off stagecoach. And that was that for the Saint Pablo tour, which was rapidly cancelled when West was admitted to hospital to be treated for exhaustion. He stayed for a week before being discharged.

December: Grammy politics( part two) and Trump time( part two)

The Grammy nominations were announced, and West had some good word and some bad news. The good report was that he got eight nominations. The bad news was that none of them were in the big categories chronicle of the year, album of its first year, chant of the year, or even excellent metropolitan contemporary album, though he did get a excellent rap book nod. The worse news was that Frank Ocean didnt get any nominations, though that was because he didnt submit an entry before the 30 September cutoff date. Well be checked whether West protrudes to his promise to boycott the apportions on 12 February. If he was feeling neglected, he could at least take comfort in The Life of Pablo being voted the fourth good album of its first year by Guardian pundits.

But, hey, Grammys, clamped you West had big fish to fry. Not exactly any big fish, but the most difficult fish of all. The whale shark of deep-fried fish. A fish so large-scale youd need to open a chain of chippies to fry it. And that fish had a epithet: Donald Trump. It would be fair to say the general action when West went to meet the president-elect in Trump Tower the taste-free skyscraper in Manhattan that is Trumps Bond-villain lair was not, I cant wait to hear what these two famed purveyors of commonsense “re saying”, so much as, Good God, even he should know this is beyond the pale. But no; he didnt think it beyond the pale to replicate the movements of Nigel Farage. The intellect for his visit, he said, was to discuss multicultural issues, including bully, corroborating schoolteachers, modernising curriculums and violence in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now applied them crest of his policy agenda. He then signed off with a hashag: #2024. Which surely represents West is planning to run for the White House in 2024, after two periods of Trump. On the bright side, it intends he seems to have gone back on his menace to run in 2020.
