You know, the same creative genius who has produced and released some of hip-hop’s greatest albums of all time (and then some)? Well he’s back at it again with his newest and most recent project entitled ye.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="27px"][vc_column_text]The Chicago native has been focusing on a number of individual albums for artists on his G.O.O.D. Music label such as Pusha-T, Kid Cudi, Nas and Teyana Taylor – all of which will consist of 7 songs each. But somehow, he’s managed to get some time in for himself. Ye [his 8 th studio album] was rolled out to the public on 1 st June following an invite only listening party held in Wyoming (a rural state in America) the night before.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="34px"][vc_column_text]

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="11px"][vc_column_text]There’s plenty to listen out for in the record, but here are just 5 interesting facts…
1. Mr West had already completed his album before going on TMZ where his interview turned in to a major global talking point due to his strong and controversial views on Trump and slavery. After that moment, he went back and scrapped the album and created a totally new one. In short, he ye in just one month.
2. The title of his album [ye] means ‘’You’’ which is the most commonly used word in the bible. He said he wanted this album to be a reflection of the good, the bad and everything we as people are. His name Kanye means ‘’The only one’’, and he went on to say he feels that time is up and now it’s all about us and good energy.
3. The album cover was actually shot on his iPhone on the way to the listening party, Kim Kardashian tweeted.
4. A particular bar/lyric was removed by Ye because he felt it was too sensitive and would offend people and he was no longer in a space to speak on that for this particular project. He said ‘’I thought yo, I’ma just chill and just keep making this music”. Will we ever find out what could’ve been said?
5. He confirmed recently that there will only be 7 songs on each album he’s producing. He told Big Boy in a recent interview, “The number , I just had a gut feeling that this number was gonna work well across all projects. But I did some research in to the number before and it turned out it was a powerful number which gave off good energy. I looked through Michael Jackson’s archive and saw 777 everywhere, even on some of his jackets – so yeah”.
Just when the world was against Kanye, he proves his genius and reminds us why he has been, is and will be one of the greatest artists of our time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
