Its tough kept pace with countries around 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 announcements and Twitter rows( part one)
After releasing a brand-new way, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new trail, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that quality, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( supplanting 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 work, the book opening was to be combined with a demo 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 new album would now be called Ripples rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa proposed hed pinched the brand-new refer from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to read 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 books all the path through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which elicited 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.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter sequences( areas 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 mens” at the centre 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 Champion Dave Schilling detected: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a chest full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive explanations written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 women is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better path 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 epic of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
