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 packed 12 months of megalomania
January: Album announcements and Twitter rows( part one)
After releasing a brand-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 object, his forthcoming album was due to be called Hiss( ousting the previous So Help Me God ), and was its producer 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 opening 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 book would now be called Wavings rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa intimated hed pinched the new appoint from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to ascertain bait 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 albums all the course 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 round table, I tell you.
The month in a Kanye title : Cant Tell Me Nothing
February: Twitter sequences( constituents 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 centre of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do precisely that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Guardian Dave Schilling find: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a container full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive announcements written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of abusing 37 women is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better mode to be distracted from that by announced today that your new album has its third 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 announced Swish. Surely that would be it for the tale of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
