Before Kanye West finally hit us with The Life Of Pablo, he performed two records from the album on SNL. He also brought quite a few friends with him, assembling the legendary squad of Young Thug, The-Dream, Kelly price, Bari and El motherfucking Debarge out to perform "Highlights" (which, at that point, kind of sounded like the spiritual sequel to "Good Life), as well as Chance The Rapper, Kirk Franklin, and a full gospel choir for the show-stopping "Ultralight Beam".

After many delays, Kanye West has finally delivered his seventh studio album, The Life Of Pablo. Following his SNL performance, Ye urged viewers to head to Tidal and KanyeWest.com at that moment to listen to the new project -- naturally, there was not album to be found, but about an hour later, all was forgiven when TLOP appeared in all its glory.

If this isn't the most hyped album drop in the history, I don't know what is. Kanye was able to debut both his album and his new clothing line at Madison Square Garden -- no small feat -- but we still haven't got The Life of Pablo, which was supposed to be released later that same day. He's since shared two new tracklists, and he's just taken to his Twitter to suggest that The Life of Pablo might drop tonight, after his performance on Saturday Night Live.

The biggest stars in the hip-hop world were out and about this past week. It all began with Super Bowl 50, attended by rappers such as Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z, the latter whose wife would make up for the underwhelming quality of the game with her roaring halftime show, which saw the live debut of her new single, "Formation."

Hip hop might not be the most romantic of musical genres, but occasionally an MC will step up to the mic to deliver a poetic love song. Certain rappers find their niche in that style of R&B/rap crossover, while others just dabble in it one-off style for all the romantic cats out there.

We know Kanye West was in the studio with Chance The Rapper last night, which he explained was to put the finishing touches on the song "Waves". Now, he's made it official.Once the title track on the album, "Waves" was removed post-name change, but via an edited version of the tracklist that popped up on Chance The Rapper's Instagram account last night, it looks like Ye has snuck the track in between "I Miss The Old Kanye" and the Weeknd-assisted "FML". Chance captioned the photo "Done," so we're hoping this will be the final delay of the album.

I'll just go ahead and reiterate what I said on Kanye West's "30 Hours" song-- Yeezy's twitter feed has been a goldmine of news stories lately. The once-reclusive tweeter has been keeping the tweets consistent, on a daily basis. It's almost too much. Nonetheless, here's a tweet all fans can appreciate: an update on the whereabouts of The Life of Pablo.

At his Yeezy Season 3 spectacle yesterday at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West unveiled a new album replete with memorable one-liners, none moreso than his dig at Taylor Swift on "Famous:" “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ I made that bitch famous.” Last night, The New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica shared a statement from Taylor Swift's spokesperson that claims Kanye wanted Swift to release "Famous" on her Twitter account.

Kanye West's album, T.L.O.P., is finally arriving in an hour's time, with a worldwide screening of it, paired with a TIDAL live stream for all those fans who weren't able to cop theatre tickets. The album's been quite an ordeal, shifting from title to title, and encouraging one of the most active-on-twitter-Kanye's we've seen in a while. Usually a Kanye tweet is news worthy simply because it's rare, but lately Kanye's been firing off news-worthy tweets left and right, so yes, there's been a bit of Yeezus overload on the site (if there is such thing as Yeezus overload).
