Kanye West has officially stepped in the building to roll out his seven-track album, simply titled ye, with a surprisingly huge smile on his face.

By his side was his wife, Kim Kardashian, as he presented an album that features Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla $ign, John Legend, a surprise by Nicki Minaj and a few more. Kanye waited for the conclusion of the NBA Finals before giving the world his latest masterpiece. Assuming his friends, fellow artists and media folk were interested in the outcome of the game — Kanye is an avid basketball fan, as well — the listening couldn’t have happened at a better time.
For the majority of the live stream, fans were treated to a campfire scenery of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The location has been the conceptual hub for several others projects Kanye has planned later this month.

In some ways, #YE feels like a Kanye compilation album of his previous sounds. I hear elements of Graduation, 808s, MBDTF, Yeezus and Pablo. Sonically, it feels like a story across the years…

Kanye's new album is some of old Ye mixed with a brand new sound.
Crazy how he keeps reinventing every single album. Really enjoyed it #Kanye
