Kanye West on an Odyssey to finish ‘The Saint Pablo’ Tour

It goes without saying that the last few months of 2016 were quite awful for Yeezy. The ‘Jesus Walks’ rapper had a year marred with personal mishaps which included his wife, Kim Kardashian West, being robbed in Paris in October. This was followed by an astounding cancellation of the eagerly awaited ‘Saint Pablo Tour’ in the United Kingdom. To cap it all off, Kanye West was hospitalized in Los Angeles and placed on a psychiatric hold in November. All I have to say is, ‘What a year!’

 

Kanye West has maintained an uncharacteristically low profile over the past few days. He asserted that he wants to focus on family and further mentioned that he prioritizes his children over any other thing. Yeezy looks forward to batten his parenting skills to a level as great as his lyrical prowess and become a good dad to his children.

 

Despite all the excruciating moments that 2016 had to proffer, Kanye West shook off the dust off his shirt and seems more vibrant, rejuvenated and exhilarated. Yeezy’s fans should be prospective of surprises from the Grammy Award Winner which would include more music and The Saint Pablo Tour. Kanye also intends to complete working on his fashion line.

 

Sources informed E! News that Kanye wants to finish the tour since he has a tremendous and inexplicable passion for it. Kanye shall hopefully make up for the time he missed during his hospitalization.

 

I remember being personally disappointed when the ‘Famous’ deacon of words cancelled the remaining dates of The Saint Pablo Tour; I would bet my life that virtually every Yeezy die-hard was equally disappointed. Well, Yeezy is back to give us all a treat! Buckle up, folks, this shall be epic!

Kanye West: The Life of Pablo

Although Kanye West made the news for a number of incidents this year, his album The Life of Pablo surprisingly fell by the wayside amid all of the drama. With West’s propensity for attracting press for all the wrong reasons, it seems a shame that songs as good as “No More Parties in LA” didn’t hit the airwaves more. With Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper and The Weeknd popping up on songs, there is also no doubt that the collaborations are extraordinary. Throughout the entire album West is, as always, painfully honest about his demons. At one point, he even raps about going to therapy.

 

Musically, The Life of Pablo is definitely on point. Although it may seem disjointed at times, West never loses sight of his artistic vision. Since the title of the album refers to painter Pablo Picasso, this is a good thing! The track “Famous” is another example of an interesting song that became, ironically, famous for being famous due to a spat West was carrying on with pop star Taylor Swift.

 

After the album was released, West seemed confused about how to distribute it. Possibly, this may have contributed to its under-the-radar status. After there had been so much hype about the album, it’s hard to believe that the public didn’t want to hear it. Kanye attempts to slay some of his biggest dragons throughout these tracks, and his devotion to the music did not go unnoticed by critics at Rolling Stone and other publications.

Kanye West Rolls Ahead with the Life of Pablo

People were not sure what they would do with the Kanye West, “The Life of Pablo,” album. It was promoted by West himself as a gospel album. Kirk Franklin made a guest appearance and the album opened with prayer. Fans had no reason but to assume that things would on the right track as West promised. This would turn out to be the exact opposite of a gospel album though. Some critics praised it; many fans were just confused by what seemed like an unpolished mess of a project.

Still, Kanye West has decided to roll full steam ahead. He has released a video for wolves that features lots of models along with wife Kim Kardashian. This is a little less controversial than the “Famous” single that features a lot of “not safe for work” content. Kanye has managed to do what so many people have not been able to do. He attracts attention to his music regardless of what other people may think. He is a lightning rod for controversy so he fits quite well into the Kardashian family.

Fans have decided to write off “The Life of Pablo” as a stranger transition into a stripped down version of the new Kanye West. In the album he mentions how fans are talking about missing the old Kanye that was known for sped up samples of old soul classics. West is definitely a different man. He has not been the same since his mother passed.

The focus right now is leaning more towards getting a clothing line. Somehow he manages to keep the controversy high with Taylor Swift as he continues promoting his new sound.

Kim and Kanye Are at It Again, But It Is Different This Time

Are there ever moments when Kanye West is not making headlines? Rarely, and the remaining moments are often spent with cameras following his wife, Kim Kardashian West. Of course, there are also moments in between when the couple is together, which is the case in a music video for one of the songs on Yeezy’s new album, The Life of Pablo.

The song is entitled, “Wolves,” and features that couple that everybody equates to royalty. Though it is not flashbacks of the couple’s happiest moments, like their wedding or the birth of their children, North and Saint, it does feature them crying in some recognizable attire. Featuring their head turning, headline-making outfits that they wore to the Met Gala in May 2016, the only thing different than the original stunning photos this July were the couples immense tears.

Now, everybody knows that Kanye has some pretty deep music videos that have far greater meaning than just putting some images to the tune. This video actually doubles as an ad campaign for Balmain, and features gorgeous models as well as personalities, Vic Mensa and Sia. Regardless of who else is in this video, the focus is always on the stars of the hour: The Wests.

If the other music videos for the Life of Pablo album are like this one, it is safe to say that you should print off some coupons for tissues because “Wolves” is demonstrating just how intense this album really is, and the music videos must match that intensity.

Kanye West Reveals Plans for Making a Movie, Nobody Is Surprised

If you got it, flaunt it, and why cut yourself short in terms of capabilities? In a sense, this is rapper, Kanye West’s, mantra, as the great regularly takes on new projects with little regards to how he was able to accomplish them, but rather focuses on the fact that he is Yeezy, and that is all that matters.

Now, most know that West regularly compares himself to some fairly fervent beings, like Jesus, the President, and even Walt Disney. The move-great comparison just might not be that far of a reach, though, as the rapper recently revealed his plans to make a movie. Slow down for just a minute, ‘Ye; don’t you already have plans to run for President when you are of age during the appropriate election year? How will you make a movie and accomplish your other dreams?

Simply enough, he is Kanye. In a thirty-five minute interview, the artist actually stated that, “I’ma just do it–the script don’t matter.” To be fair, the script just might not matter, and fans or those who are simply curious will fill theaters around the globe just to catch a glimpse into that precious mind of Kanye.

Seeing that West’s music videos are pretty deep in context and hard to understand, it just might be safe to say that an actual film written and produced by him will be fairly stellar. One thing is for certain, though, and that is that Kanye will never not be himself nor succumb to giving up his goals in an attempt to prove everybody wrong.
