Kanye West dives into drama surrounding him on new album, Ye


This is the first Kanye album since The Life Of Pablo.

The record is full of features: Ty Dolla $ign, Kid Cudi, Jeremih, Young Thug, 070 Shake, and Charlie Wilson all reportedly appear, along with Nicki Minaj in the coveted "voicemail interlude" slot. The photograph, released in 2012 after the singer's death, was selected days before the album's release at the insistence of Kanye West, who paid $85,000 for the photograph's rights.

Ye is available for listening starting today on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify and Tidal.

The artist had a listening party in Wyoming last night, with the general reaction to the album being a positive one, but with a character like Kanye, the album is bound to split opinion.

Backlash from allies, business associations over steel and aluminum tariffs
Getting the president to walk back from the line he drew in the sand Thursday won't be easy, they acknowledge. These U.S. allies are also unmistakably valuable sources of aluminum and steel for many U.S. industries.

Kanye West addresses the fallout over his slavery comments on his new track "Wouldn't Leave". "It's like we're mentally in prison", West said on TMZ. "/ Thinkin" what if that happened to me too / Then I'm on E!

Words on the album art reads "I hate being Bi-Polar /It's awesome".

"I said, 'Slavery a choice.' They say, 'How, Ye?'/ Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day". He rapped that Kardashian West called "screaming, saying we're about to lose it all", fearing the criticism from the statement.

"Had to calm her down 'cause she couldn't breathe / Told her she could leave me now / But she wouldn't leave". It's a mishmash of sounds he employed 808s and Heartbreak, Yeezus and TLOP-his three worst albums-but with very few of the best elements from those albums. But everything changed the moment he posted a picture of him wearing a MAGA hat.
