After reactivating his Twitter account on Friday, Kanye West tweeted a light jab at Nike but deleted it shortly after posting. On Sunday evening, though, he returned for good by sharing a series of old screenshots and memories—including a brief story about playing The Life of Pablo for Lamar Odom while he was recovering from his overdose and "learning to walk and talk again."
First, Kanye looked back on concepts for his Saint Pablo merchandise and tweeted a photo of his favorite design.
Working in some crowd participation, Kanye asked us all to caption an old photo:
Kanye's next picture was a memory with Lamar Odom. He revealed that he "used to go to the hospital and play Lamar the album when he was learning to walk and talk again." The two ended up walked into Madison Square Garden together in New York City during the Life of Pablo Yeezy Season 3 listening party.
He took a break from the photos to share some thoughts about consciousness, capitalism, and money. Maybe a Kanye-penned philosophy book is on the way?
Finally, he ended by posting a memory with the late fashion designer—and Central Saint Martins professor—Louise Wilson.
Back in 2015, he broke down and cried while sharing a story about the last time he saw Wilson.
"The last time that I saw her we had dinner at Hakasaan I think she knew that she was going to pass and wanted to give me some words of advice moving forward," West said, during an interview with Radio One. "She was asking me about my daughter, asking me about my wife, and she said, 'So many students, they don't give it their all, and the problem is, as soon as they do anything that is half-way good—when they're two-years-old, three-years-old—their parents clap.' And she looked at me, and she said, 'Kanye, don't clap.' I didn't know that we were going to lose her, and she told me, 'Thank you for the times that we came to performances—that really meant a lot to me.'"
If this next album rollout is anything like the last few, there will likely be much more where this came from now that Kanye West is back on Twitter. If you're not already following him, you can do so here.
