Kanye West’s new album, ‘The Life Of Pablo,’ is finally here and we’ve listened to every song! The album is everything Yeezus fans have been waiting for and it’s full of diss tracks! Find out what we think of the entire album here.
Kanye West dropped his most extreme album yet during the early morning hours of Feb. 14, following his appearance on Saturday Night Live! The rapper’s highly-anticipated The Life Of Pablo made its world debut, and it’s a masterful work of art. On his 17 tracks, he raps about everything from having sex with Kim Kardashian to slamming Taylor Swift. And while most of the lyrics are shocking — as expected — Kanye’s new album is one of his best yet.
Below, check out our break down on how we feel about some of our favorites songs:
“Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 2″ is a tribute to his dad. He said he cried while writing it and we have to admit, we love this song. On it, he raps, “Up in the morning/miss you bad/sorry that i ain’t call you back/the same problems my father had.”
“Famous”: It’s hard to not have already heard about this song with Rihanna, where he dissed Taylor by rapping: ““I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex, I made that b-tch famous.” Taylor has already fired back and we can understand why. Perhaps this track went a bit too far — even for Kanye.
“I Love Kanye”: This song is kind of hilarious because it’s all about Kanye loving … well, Kanye! He raps, “I miss the old Kanye, shit from the gold Kanye/Talking ’bout the soul Kanye, set all his goals Kanye.”
“Highlights”: Kanye definitely loves talking about his d***. On this track, he raps, “Sometimes I’m wishing that my d*** had GoPro/So I could play that s*** back in slo-mo/Just shot a shot an amateur video I think I should, go pro.” Believe it or not, Kanye said he and Ray J would totally be friends if they didn’t both sleep with Kim … um, what?! “I bet me and Ray J would be friends / If we ain’t love the same b****.” This has to be one of the most shocking tracks on the album! We were also not expecting Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian to be mentioned at all! “Blac Chyna f***ing Rob helped him with the weight.” Okay, this came out of left field, but maybe he thinks this will show Rob that he supports his relationship with Tyga‘s ex! It’s a pretty funny song and we have to admit it’s one of our faves!
“FML”: Kanye makes sure to tell the world how long he’s been waiting to be with Kim in this one. “I been waiting for a minute/For my, lady/So I can’t jeopardize that for one of these hoes.” How sweet!
“Real Friends”: In this song, he raps about people using him to get ahead … perhaps someone in his family? “Switched up the number, I can’t be bothered/I cannot blame you for havin’ an angle/I ain’t got no issues, I’m just doin’ my thing/Hope you’re doin’ your thing too/I’m a deadbeat cousin, I hate family reunions.”
“30 Hours”: This song is all about having sex with Kim! He says they have sex for 30 hours and that they even have a sex tape. “I wake up, all veggies no eggs, I hit the gym all chest, no legs/Then I make myself a smoothie, then me and wifey make a movie.”
“No More Parties In LA”: Kanye mentions Saint West in this song, so naturally, we love it! “I be worried ’bout my daughter, I be worried ’bout Kim/But Saint is baby Ye, I ain’t worried ’bout him.”
“Facts (Charlie Heat Version)”: Kanye makes sure to mention Bill Cosby and Nike in this song, which will likely raise a few eyebrows. “If Nike ain’t have Drizzy, man they wouldn’t have nothin’, woo!/If Nike ain’t have Don C, man they wouldn’t have nothin’, ooh!”
Those are just some of our favorites, but to listen to the entire album, download it from Tidal here. Overall, we’re huge fans of Kanye’s new album. But now it’s your turn! So, HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Kanye’s new album? Sound off below!
