Picasso? Escobar? Petey? Kanye West started a frenzy after announcing that his new album’s official title is ‘The Life Of Pablo,’ with fans losing their minds over what Pablo he’s talking about. Who do you think Ye is referencing? Vote in our poll below!
Kanye West has put his fans through one heck of a confusing ride in the search for his perfect album title. But even officially declaring a title didn’t help anything! Yeezy announced that his highly anticipated new album would be titled The Life Of Pablo — and instead of ending the flip flopping, Kanye, 38, now has his fans finding every Pablo in the book to figure out who he’s honoring with the name! So Ye, how about some clarity?
Considering Pablo isn’t exactly the most common name in pop culture, there’s not whole lot of possibilities to choose from. That didn’t stop Ye’s fans from digging deep to get to the bottom of it! Perhaps the most obvious possibility was Pablo Picasso, as Kanye has (so humbly) compared himself to the legendary painter in the past. Oh, but that’d be too easy, right Yeezy?
In fact, it seems Kanye wasn’t going to take such a simple route with the puzzling name. He even held a contest for fans to guess what T.L.O.P. stood for — but one fan managed to get it right! A rapper from New Jersey named Dante Holley used a line from “No More Parties In LA” to decode the acronym. After hearing “I feel like Pablo when I’m workin’ on my shoes,” he knew Kanye had to be talking about Pablo Escobar! Some fans weren’t so enthused with that idea, though…
Who tf is Pablo @kanyewest ?! It better not be Escobar 🙄🙄

Choosing to believe that the Pablo in Kanye's new album title is that penguin from the Backyardigans

Even if one of these guesses is correct, at this point, questioning things that Kanye does is probably pointless. Let’s be honest — the album may drop Feb. 11, but by Feb. 12, it might not even be The Life Of Pablo anymore. Will we ever get a final name?!
So who the hell is Pablo?
