We knew it would drop, we felt it would be this weekend, and now finally, Kanye West's The Life of Pablo is streaming. Rejoice, but with baited breath.
Kanye announced that The Life of Pablo was available for streaming and download on Tidal, just after a performing some of the tracks from the album last night on SNL (where he even took part in skit to battle rap cast member Kyle Mooney). Tidal has exclusive streaming rights to the album for the next seven days, (though it will supposedly be availble for purchase on Kanye's personal website), after which the album will be available on all music platforms.
The Life of Pablo contains a stacked list of guest spots from both rappers and producers. Vocal contributors include Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, Rihanna, Young Thug, André 3000, the Weeknd, gospel singer Kirk Franklin, and many others. Co-producers include: Drake, Pharrell, Rick Rubin, Hudson Mohawke, Swizz Beatz, and Madlib. Both Drake and Pharrell, as well as André 3000, appear on an updated version of "30 Hours," which includes a sample from Arthur Russell's "Answers No."
Head over to Tidal for the steam (according to the site, you can start a free trial and cancel at anytime), and scope the track list below. And do consider buying the album, as Kanye is claiming that he is $53 million dollars in personal debt…
