On Thursday, Kanye West stopped the world and got them all to tune in to what was essentially his listening party for The Life of Pablo. Immediately, two things stuck out: one, Kanye was back to more traditional rap songs and rapping, and two, he’d cut songs and added new material seemingly in the hours leading up to the show. “No More Parties in LA” was a glaring omission, but, with “Fade” also seemingly left off the album, it was clear ‘Ye had some tracks he liked, but just didn’t like for the album.
Friday, after another Twitter rant, Kanye backed up that notion with the return of G.O.O.D. Fridays and the release of “30 Hours” and a brand new tracklist for the album.
