Kanye West is Getting, Like, Super Deep on Twitter (Oh & He Also Revealed Two Upcoming Albums & a Bunch of Unreleased Yeezy Gear)

Kanye West is no stranger to well, strange, internet outbursts. But over the last 24 hours, the Pablo rapper has gotten super philosophical. Beginning yesterday, he started sharing gems like “Distraction is the enemy of vision,” “Sometimes you just have to get rid of everything” and a personal favorite, “Stop playing chess with life.”

 

 

Later, though, things started to get a bit more Tony Robbins.

 

 

The whole thing was pretty crazy. But what else do we expect from Kanye West at this point? And his explanation made perfect sense: it’s a book that he’s writing in real time. Duh.

 

 

West also took the opportunity to announce two upcoming albums, a seven-song solo drop due out June 1, and a collab album with Kid Cudi. He also revealed Teyana Taylor’s album release date (June 22) and that Pusha T will be dropping new music on May 25. Not sure how those two feel about that, though.

In addition to new music, Ye gave us a preview of his newest Yeezy season, including a photo of the color palette and a bunch of new shoes.

 

 

We’re sure his publicists (not to mention Teyana Taylor and Pusha T’s teams) aren’t super thrilled, but we are. It’s like a Very Yeezy Christmas came super early.

Keep your eye on his feed.
