As if the expectations for SWISH could get any higher, Kanye West continues to drive the hype for his seventh solo album straight through the proverbial roof. Rarely one to shy away from potential backlash from the public regarding his exuberant expressions of self-admiration, the supremely confident MC took to Twitter once more today to back up his bold claim that this is in fact “the best album of all time.”
“This is not album of the year. This is album of the life,” clarified Yeezy, who’s reportedly been in the studio with the likes of Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar and Swizz Beatz in the past week alone – responding directly to any downplay of his declaration.
Debuting during his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at Madison Square Garden on February 11, the 10-song record is expected to include West’s G.O.O.D. Friday collaboration with TDE’s head honcho, “No More Parties in L.A;” the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Real Friends;” as well as “Wolves” featuring Sia and Vic Mensa; according to the project’s handwritten tracklist.
