With all the controversy surrounding Kanye West this week (including his rumoured abandonment of a Chicago charity set up in his late mother's name, his association with the Drake/Pusha T beef, and his wife's trip to the White House to discuss prison reform), there was a lot of doubt that his new album would actually drop on schedule. But as promised, the 7-track "Ye" arrived on time Friday morning.
Yeezy's eighth album features appearances by Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign, Young Thug, Jeremih, Charlie Wilson, Kid Cudi, Ty and Valee.
He premiered the album during a listening event with journalists in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on Thursday night. The album's artwork includes the text "I hate being Bi-Polar. it’s awesome," and Kim Kardashian tweeted that the accompanying photo of the Wyoming mountains was one he took on his iPhone on the way to the listening party.
