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

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

True to his word, Kanye West has delivered his new studio album Ye tonight via a livestream event from Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The rapper showcased his new material at an invite-only party in Wyoming on Thursday night, where he'd been recording. It's certainly one of the more unique venues to have had an event like this, and the lovely location apparently inspired West to take up his iPhone camera and get his own landscape images.

According to Pusha-T, who is involved in his own beef with Drake at the moment, Kanye produced his album Daytona and made a decision 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. In just a few bars, he makes light of his infamous TMZ interview and seemingly attacks Simmons, who had the nerve to write an open letter to West while dealing with his own shit.

When West announced on his Twitter last week that this would be the album artwork, people were understandably pissed.

On "Yikes", Kanye raps: "Russell Simmons wanna pray for me too / I'ma pray for him "cause he got #MeToo'd".

Nicki Minaj and Kanye West's working relationship has come a long way since the Barb revealed she had to convince Ye to keep "Monster" on his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.

This is the first Kanye album since The Life Of Pablo.

West opens up about suicide ("I Thought About Killing You"), marital issues ("Wouldn't Leave"), and pop culture ("I could have a Naomi Campbell and still might want me a Stormy Daniels").

Unsurprisingly, numerous people who did listen had some thoughts.

The album art reads "I hate being Bi-Polar its awesome".

"Babe, that's not wisdom at all because you're assuming you know who I'm talking about and you're assuming you know my feelings", she replied.

Ye's emotional claustrophobia is at times effective: As a chronicle of living with mental illness, this is Kanye's most unsparing work to date.
