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 jam-packed 12 months of megalomania
January: Album notices and Twitter rows( part one)
After releasing a 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 Swish( changing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its make said the best album 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 activity, the album open was to be combined with a prove 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 something better to do than having rows on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the brand-new book would now be called Curves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa showed hed pinched the brand-new name from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to investigate 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 all the way 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 rows( duties 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 gossip instead? On 9 February, West chose to do precisely that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Champion 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 proclamations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 females is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better style to distract attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third brand-new name 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?
