Kanye West’s ‘The Life of Pablo’ Album Preview

The Final product, the Kanye West’s ‘T.L.O.P’ album sounded like a collection of ‘Ye’s previous work combined. There were moments of darkness, a la Yeezus, soul claps from the College Dropout ‘Ye and a wealth of shit-talking lines but also a sense of comfort in giving zero f—s about what critics had to say about his music or clothing line. In un-Kanye-like fashion, he kept the mic from his lips and attempted to blow out the Garden’s sound system with The Life of Pablo. Timelines went wild when West name-dropped Ray J, commented on Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s alleged relationship, and this one chin-stroking lyric: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ I made that bitch famous.” He also embraced his meme-dom, at one point rapping, “I love you like Kanye loves Kanye.”

“This album is really a gospel album,” West said during his closing remarks. “It’s been a hard struggle, but I feel so happy, so much joy to be actually following my dreams without people shitting on me.” He ran through a lengthy list of thank yous that included Jay Z, Adidas and the fans who supported the music, purchased the Yeezys and believed in him. At one point, West even blasted the Nike diss “Facts” before hushing “Fuck Michael Jordan” chanters: “No ‘Fuck Michael Jordan.’ I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Jordan. Respect Jordan.” (Jordan had declined to attend his show, according to a photo ‘Ye posted on Twitter.)
