Re: AMF Chart Week 6 2016

I got so caught up in Kanye fever, I totally forgot my poll reminder! Apologies all around. BUT, this is the last opportunity to send in your votes, nominations, and seconding nominations for next week's poll!

Re: Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo"

Initial impression: This album is ridiculously fun. Even more so than I expected it to be, which was an incredible amount to begin with.

Also, the Tidal problems have been fixed, as least on my end.

The first post has been updated with the proper tracklist and such.

The album is, I can declare, officially streaming on Tidal. And for sale on his website. Going through the first listen now.

Blessed Yeezy season to you all.

Re: Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo"

Kanye has tweeted out, in so many words, that the titular Pablo is referring to Paul the Apostle (known as Paul in some languages).

He is performing on "Saturday Night Live" tonight, which has just started on the U.S. east coast. His first performance should be in roughly 30 minutes.

Kanye Watch 2016:
Chance the Rapper has, apparently, convinced Kanye to add "Waves" to the already expanded tracklist, and the album is "done." Now we wait.

Well. This has just been chaos and insanity, but I do have to say that I've been wholesomely amused by the cultural upheaval this man has caused.

And joyous that the album will be out today. "30 Hours" is lovely.
