Kanye West has officially dropped his most anticipated album in years Ye.
A lucky handful amount of listeners got a chance to listen to the album early at an event held by Kanye in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The album consists of features from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi and Ty Dolla $ign. Ye covers topics from the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal, his mental health, and to his marriage to Kim Kardashian.
Ye begins with I Thought About Killing You, which concentrates on Kanye’s experiences of when he was going through a dark period in his life to the point where he was contemplating the option of suicide. “I contemplated premeditated murder / And I think about killing myself,” are one of the few strong lyric in the song.
Kim Kardashian took to her social media to explain where the album originated from. She explained that Ye took the picture off his iPhone, which is a picture of a scenic view of the Wyoming mountains. The lettering across the images says “I hate being bipolar it’s awesome.”
