After what has felt like forever, today is the day we’re finally getting Kanye West’s new album,
So Help Me God Swish Waves The Life of Pablo. Fans might be relieved that we can finally judge Ye by his music, and not his dumb tweets, anal proclivities, dumb tweets, guests at the studio, dumb NSFW tweets, and general indecisiveness. Oh, and also there’s a fashion show going on.
As he expressed on “Facts,” Kanye is very proud of his fashion line, to the point that his album’s many delays (and song delays) were blamed in part because he was putting full focus on this. While the Yeezy Boosts tended to get more coverage than the rest of the line, this new focus might mean we’ve got something more than Star Wars memes and overpriced plain tees in store. If anything, Kanye selling out Madison Square Garden and airing the event in select theaters sounds extravagant enough to warrant a watch. But if you didn’t manage to get tickets or find another way to get to MSG, don’t worry. Tidal is streaming the whole thing for free.
The live stream is up, the show should begin at 4 p.m. EST. If you missed it on Thursday, the replay is still available above.
