Kanye West's "TLOP" is finally here.
After many delays, Kanye West has finally delivered his seventh studio album, The Life Of Pablo.

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.

Well it looks like we can blame Chance The Rapper for the delay of The Life Of Pablo. Early Saturday morning, Kanye took to twitter to inform us that it’s Chance’s fault the album isn’t out yet.
The biggest stars in the hip-hop world were out and about this 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."
Lil B's Free Based Freestyles collaborative mixtape with Chance the Rapper is evidence that working with another rapper forces him become a better rapper/stop being such a spaz -- no disrespect to his new 63-track solo mixtape Thugged Out Pissed Off.
Bill Cosby is in the middle of a very serious sexual assault investigation which has seen over 60 women come forward with stories of his abuse. While most public figures who have spoken out on the issue have shown support for the alleged victims, a few have assumed Cosby's innocence. Kanye West is now one of those people. BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!!
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.
Well it looks like there could be another chapter still being written in the on-going Drake x Meek Mill beef. On Friday night, Drake served as the Canadian coach for the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game alongside his opposition, Kevin Hart, helming the US squad.
Here it is. The year has been defined by the anticipation surrounding SWISH -- no, WAVES -- no, T.L.O.P., which stands for The Life of Pablo, as Kanye confirmed last night. It seems that title will stick, as we've finally arrived at the unveiling of Kanye's new album, which coincides with the debut of his new Yeezy Season 3 clothing line.
As fate would have it, both Kendrick Lamar and Drake have been presented with the key to their respective cities the same weekend.
Over its 50 year lifespan, the NFL's championship game has done a better job than any other sporting event of attracting viewers who have little to no interest in the sport.
Kanye West has been having a tough time making decisions for his new album The Life Of Pablo. First, he couldn’t for the life of him figure out what the title of the album was going to be, nor its tracklisting, and now it’s the same ordeal with the cover art.
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.
Future hit the top of the charts again this week, as his album EVOL achieved a #1 ranking on the Billboard charts after releasing last Friday. The Atlanta rapper beat out juggernauts like Adele, Coldplay and Rihanna for the top spot. While none of those three had new albums out, they each have a much more palatable and digestible sound than Future’s trap tales.

Naturally, this all happened at Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday party.
