Kanye West took to Twitter tonight to reveal what T.LO.P. stands for: The Life of Pablo.
1. "Ultra Light Beams" f/ Chance the Rapper, Kelly Price, and The-Dream
2. "Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1 & Pt. 2" f/ Kid Cudi and Desiigner
3. "Freestyle 4"
4. "Famous" f/ Rihanna and Swizz Beatz
5. "Highlights" f/ Young Thug and The-Dream
7. "FML" f/ The Weeeknd
8. "Fade" f/ Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign
8. "Real Friends" f/ Ty Dolla $ign
9. "Wolves" f/ Frank Ocean
Along with the album title announcement, Kanye shared the final tracklist, which has been altered a bit. He's removed "No More Parties in LA," "30 Hours," and "Waves." He also made two new additions: "Freestyle 4" and "Feed Back."
Kanye rapped about Pablo on "No More Parties in LA," although it is unclear which Pablo he is referring to. He raps, "I feel like Pablo when I'm workin' on my shoes/I feel like Pablo when I see me on the news/I feel like Pablo when I'm workin' on my house." A message on the new notepad list echoes this sentiment, with a cryptic message alongside the album title that reads, "which one?"
The album was originally titled So Help Me God, before it was changed to SWISH, and again to WAVES. He's been dropping tons of hints about tracks and features over the last week, in addition to his seemingly random declaration of his stance on Bill Cosby via Twitter. He also got into a big Twitter dustup with Wiz Khalifa over the name change, although they've apparently buried the hatchet. The project is set to drop Thursday, Feb. 11.
The anticipation is real for this album, with tastemakers like Ebro hyping us up with exclusive info, to the president of G.O.O.D Music, Pusha T, tweeting his approval of the new project:
Travi$ Scott has also voiced his excitement about "Feed Back" making it back onto the album. Does this mean he is featured on it? Or does he just really like the track?
Kanye will be holding his Yeezy Season 3 show at Madison Square Garden to be streamed on Tidal tomorrow at 4 p.m. EST.
One interesting thing to note is that The-Dream has rescheduled his Washington D.C. show that was supposed to go down this Saturday, the same night that Kanye West is going to perform on Saturday Night Live. In The-Dream's Twitter announcement, he cites "a nationally televised appearance" as the reason for the show's rescheduling, leading fans to speculate that he might be involved in the SNL episode this weekend, as well.
In related internet news, some Twitter users have correctly guessed the new album title. In fact, 33 people have been contacted to receive Season 3 tickets and those coveted Yeezys.
