What slavery comment? Fans quickly forgive Kanye West after his album release

Posted June 02, 2018

Kanye West is gearing up for the release of his latest album, YE.

According to Pusha-T, who is involved in his own beef with Drake at the moment, Kanye produced his album Daytona and chose to change the cover art at the last minute, paying a reported $85,000 for the rights to a photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom. With guest spots from Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign, Young Thug and Jeremih, it is a brutally honest chronicle of West's recent struggles, beginning with the jarring "I Thought About Killing You".

Although fans around the world are desperate to listen to YE in full, Kanye's album is not yet officially available on Spotify, Tidal or Apple Music.

On "Wouldn't Leave", a track that wouldn't be out of place on Jay-Z's conciliatory 4:44, West admits that his antics are at odds with his wife, Kim Kardashian. I contemplated, premeditated murder.

The 7-track release is already making headlines for some of its lyrics, which also reference wife Kim Kardashian's reaction to his infamous TMZ Live appearance, contemplating suicide, Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal with Khloe Kardashian and Russell Simmons getting accused of sexual assault (which he denied).

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