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 packed 12 months of megalomania
January: Album edicts and Twitter sequences( part one)
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 spot, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( changing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its make 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 work, the book launch 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 sequences on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the brand-new album would now be called Wavings rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa advocated hed pinched the new epithet from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to learn 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 route through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which prompted 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 round table, I tell you.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter sequences( duties 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 support for the man at the centre of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do merely that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Guardian Dave Schilling saw: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a carton full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive affirmations written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 females is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better lane to be distracted from that by announced today that your new album has its third brand-new title 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 tale of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
