Its tough kept 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 edicts and Twitter rows( part 1)
After releasing a new track, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another brand-new racetrack, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that part, his forthcoming album was due to be called Hiss( superseding the previous So Help Me God ), and was its creator 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 task, the book propel was to be combined with a see for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinemas 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 book would now be called Ripples rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa intimated hed pinched the brand-new reputation from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to find 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 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 round table, I tell you.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter rows( fractions two and three) and the book launch
Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tamed 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 only that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Defender Dave Schilling discovered: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a chest full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive statements written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of abusing 37 ladies is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better way to be distracted from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new claim 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 story of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
