Its tough keeping up 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 edicts and Twitter sequences( part one)
After releasing a brand-new racetrack, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another brand-new trail, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that level, 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 book open was to be combined with a establish 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 named the new album would now be called Curves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa intimated hed pinched the brand-new refer from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to view 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 practice 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( constituents two and three) and the album launch
Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tame sometimes. So why not tweet your expressed support for the man at the center of a massive sexual-assault gossip instead? On 9 February, West chose to do exactly that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Guardian Dave Schilling detected: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a container full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive affirmations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of raping 37 girls is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better lane to distract attention from that by announced today that your new album has its third new deed 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 saga of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?
