Kanye West’s seventh album, The Life of Pablo, isn’t even on sale (yet), and perhaps not even finished, but that hasn’t stopped him from announcing a new album. Behold:
The announcement came at the tail-end of a rather epic Twitter monologue on his state of mind (“I’m not crazy. I’m free... You won’t always agree with me but I’m gon’ always be me. I’m woke!”), the whitewashing of the GRAMMYs (“I feel the Grammy awarding system is way off and completely out of touch... You like your black people a certain way also. You wouldn’t have Future perform and that man owned the clubs last summer.”), his much-discussed personal debut (“I wrote Saint Pablo after admitting to my greatest shame my personal debt. But I’m not ashamed anymore. I’m proud as an entrepreneur that I gave everything I had to my dreams.”), and his ideas on freedom (“What is your definition of true freedom? There is no true freedom without economic freedom... I just had to start with shoes so that I could be economically empowered enough to have a voice.”).
