Kanye rants on Twitter happen so often these days they aren’t news anymore, but every once in a while he’ll tweet something that demands our attention.
This is one of those times.
The Life Of Pablo is not even officially out and Kanye already has his sights set on his next album.
Now, as usual, please, PLEASE, take this with a grain of salt.
It’s exciting to think about two Yeezy seasons in one year, but just because Kanye tweeted it, does not make it a forgone conclusion. If I had a nickel for everything Kanye tweeted about Pablo that wasn’t true - from the album name to the tracklist to the release date - I’d have enough to buy him out of debt.
Still, he’s mentioned having over 40 songs with Kendrick, over 40 songs with Young Thug, lots of material with Drake and Future, and countless Madlib beat tapes. After debuting a new song last night, there’s clearly no shortage of music in Kanye’s vault.
And let’s not forget the “Good Ass Job” reference on “Ultralight Beam.” Could there be something there? Are we going to get a Cruel Summer Pt. 2?
No matter how much bullshit he puts us through, we keep coming back for more. Kanye West, ladies and Gentlemen.
