Kanye West’s ‘Ye’ Is Finally Here: ‘I Hate Being Bipolar. It’s Awesome’ [LISTEN]
After two months of Twitter antics, a campfire listening party in Wyoming, a name change and a cover change, Kanye West's new album, Ye, is here and available for streaming.
As aforementioned, the album is seven tracks long, and features production solely from Kanye. The album art, shot yesterday on his iPhone, according to his wife, Kim Kardashian West, features the Wyoming mountainside with the words "I hate being bi-polar It's awesome," written over the scenic view.
On the album, Kanye touches on a bevy of topics, including Stormy Daniels, his bipolar disorder, his thoughts about suicide, Russell Simmons and #MeToo and more.
“I said, ‘Slavery a choice’, they say, ‘How, Ye?’ Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day,” he raps on "Butterfly Energy," referencing his controversial slavery comments during an interview with TMZ.
Yesterday, Kanye hosted a listening party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which he encouraged fans to livestream via the WAV app. In true Kanye fashion, the album listening took place around a campfire, was introduced by Chris Rock and featured a host of celebrities including his wife, Kim Kardashian West, Kid Cudi, 2 Chainz, Pusha T and Ty Dolla $ign, Fabolous, DJ Clue, Theophilus London, CyHi Tha Prynce, Lil Yachty, Nas, Desiigner, Dame Dash, Big Sean, Pusha T and actor Jonah Hill, along with rightwing commentator, Candace Owens, who Kanye caught flak for supporting back in April.
