Its tough keep pace with the nations of 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 notices and Twitter sequences( part 1)
After releasing a brand-new trail, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another brand-new racetrack, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that detail, his forthcoming album was due to be called Swish( ousting the previous So Help Me God ), and was its producer 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 activity, the book open was to be combined with a display for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinema worldwide. Of course.
You would think, with all that to take care of, West might have something better to do than having rows on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West heralded the brand-new book would now be called Waves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa suggested hed pinched the brand-new mention from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to identify 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 channel through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which precipitated 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( sides 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 expressed support for the three men at the center 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 Defender Dave Schilling celebrated: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a box full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive proclamations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of abusing 37 females is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better practice to be distracted from that by announcing that your brand-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 called Swish. Surely that would be it for the saga of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
