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 notices and Twitter sequences( part one)
After releasing a brand-new track, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new way, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that stage, his forthcoming album was due to be called Swish( ousting 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 activity, the book launching was to be combined with a demonstrate 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 better things to do than having rows on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the brand-new album would now be called Motions rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa recommended hed pinched the brand-new call from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to receive bait without taking it, West piled in. Your first single was corny as fucking and most there after No one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the lane through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which caused 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 sequences( proportions 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 support for the man at the center of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do just that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Defender Dave Schilling celebrated: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a container full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive words written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 women is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better style to distract attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third brand-new claim 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 saga of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
