Kanye West has been creating a lot of hype surrounding his new album, The Life of Pablo, in recent weeks. If photos of his real friends in the studio weren’t enough, he builds the anticipation even more with the official cover art for the project. It was done by Peter De Potter, a Belgium artist who collaborates with Raf Simons, and looks to feature a portrait of Kanye and his family from when he was just a child.
From earlier previews, we know the album will feature Ty Dolla $ign, Post Malone, Sia and Vic Mensa. However, West probably has some surprises up his Yeezy sleeves for any other guests he’s decided to add on to the final tracklist. Hopefully, it’s a Young Thug joint since they are rumored to have 40 songs recorded together.
G.O.O.D. Fridays has become more of a promotional tool than a weekly series to premiere new music. Although we’ve received “Real Friends” and “No More Parties in LA,” we’ve gotten renditions of a tracklist, a spontaneous name change from SWISH to WAVES and then to The Life of Pablo, as well as an epic Twitter rant against Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose that had the whole world watching. With the album nearly here, ‘Ye’s ready to shake the game up again.
