Kanye West has finished and mastered his new album. It's now up to 17 songs and will apparently come out today. He's also posted the new track "30 Hour" on SoundCloud. The past few weeks have seen tweet storms about his ex, posting "Cosby innocent," and a defense of a song lyric about Taylor Swift he says she gave her blessing for, but her spokesperson and friends do not. The whole thing's a mess and there's been a lot of discussion in the community about how people are handling it in different ways. For me, I'll direct you to the aforementioned thread with a variety of my thoughts on the topic and the latest updates, but, personally, I'm not going to be posting news about this for a...

Kanye West's seventh solo album, which might be called WAVES, or SWISH or maybe So Help Me God, who knows (Kanye seems unclear himself!), is now available to preorder on his website alongside tickets to hear the album alongside a showing of Yeezy Season 3 streamed from Madison Square Garden.

Continuing his descent into the same kind of madness that marked his 2010-era Twitter, Kanye tweeted what was ostensibly a Rolling Stone cover featuring him shot by Tyler, The Creator and which posed the question: "Does He Like Mustard?" Rolling Stone denied it was a cover, but Kanye has since tweeted a poll asking his followers whether it should be a cover. No word on whether there were ever any actual plans for Yeezy to grace RS this month.

Kanye has changed his upcoming album's title again. Originally So Help Me God, then SWISH, his seventh record is now titled WAVES. The album is being premiered February 11th and I will continue to refer to it as SWISH because that is the best album title ever.

In 2013, Kanye hinted at a Miley Cyrus remix of his Yeezus track "Black Skinhead." It's finally hit the internet, and you can stream it over at Vulture. It's weird.

Update #2: Looks like it's gone again! Someone teach Kanye how to use Soundcloud please. Oh, now it's on www.kanyewest.com. Okay. Whatever, then.

Update: After taking it down due to "distortion in the main loop" of "Real Friends," Kanye has reupped the track to Soundcloud.

Kanye West just dropped "Real Friends" featuring Ty Dolla $ign, and appended a preview of "No More Parties In LA" featuring Kendrick Lamar. The tracks were swiftly taken down from his soundcloud, but can be listened to here.

Kanye has given an interview with Vanity Fair about the release of his new clothing line, Yeezy Season II. In addition to that, he briefly spoke about his new album Swish ("currently titled that") which still doesn't have a release date and doesn't seem likely to get one anytime soon ("I'm not sure"), and whether he still plans on running 2020 Presidential Campaign ("Oh, definitely"). Read the whole thing here.

Kanye West is presenting his Yeezy Season II fashion line at New York Fashion Week today, and apparently soundtracked the presentation with a new song. The song, apparently titled "I Feel Enslaved" and featuring Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign, is available in the replies via a recording of it being played at the presentation. As of yet, there is no confirmation if this will be on the still-mysterious seventh Kanye LP SWISH.

Kanye West's representatives have shared a statement about his overly censored Billboard Music Awards performance.
Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards. Non-profane lyrics such as “with my leather black jeans on” were muted for over 30 second intervals. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented. It is ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against.

Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.
