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 packed 12 months of megalomania
January: Album proclamations and Twitter sequences( part one)
After releasing a brand-new line, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new track, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that time, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( replacing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its producer said the best book 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 task, the album launch was to be combined with a demo 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 book would now be called Wavings rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa indicated hed pinched the brand-new name from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to learn enticement 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 books all the course 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 round table, I tell you.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter sequences( constituents 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 support for the three men at the centre of a massive sexual-assault gossip instead? On 9 February, West chose to do precisely that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Protector Dave Schilling detected: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a container full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive affirmations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of abusing 37 women is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better room to distract attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new entitlement 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 saga of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
