‘The Life of Pablo’: Kanye West reveals ‘final track list’ for new album and meaning behind the title T.L.O.P. but leaves off song that inspired it



Kanye West compares himself to artist Pablo Picasso in his hit single No More Parties in L.A. featuring Kendrick Lamar.

The 38-year-old rapper perhaps drew inspiration from the lyrics when he chose the songs and the third – and hopefully last – title for his seventh studio album coming out on Friday.

Kanye took to Twitter to reveal the ‘final track list’ and meaning behind the abbreviated title T.L.O.P., which is ‘The Life of Pablo.’

The track list included Ultra Light Beam, Famous, Fade, Real Friends and Wolves, but not the song that he worked on with fellow rapper Kendrick.

Kanye obviously thought he had something in common with Picasso, who was famous for his cubist works, as Variety reported.

‘I feel like Pablo when I’m workin’ on my shoes / I feel like Pablo when I see me on the news / I feel like Pablo when I’m workin’ on my house,’ Kanye chants.

The first title was called SWISH before it was changed to Waves, which incited a Twitter spat with Wiz Khalifa who felt it dishonoured fellow rapper Max B.

Kanye’s previous album Yeezus soared to No. 1 on the U.S. charts in 2013 and received rave reviews from the critics.

The Twitter announcement comes during a busy week for the rapper-fashion designer who will unveil his season three collection during New York Fashion Week.

West tweeted earlier on Wednesday an odd request to his 18.5 million followers, most of whom surely do not have access to his private phone number.

‘Please no one text me or ask me for anything till Monday,’ the rapper wrote.

While it may have been in response to the backlash he received for tweeting ‘BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!’ the night before’ it is unlikely.

The rapper, who is famously slow to reflect on his public behavior, appeared to be indicating just how busy his schedule is with the upcoming release of his new album Waves, his appearance this weekend on SNL, and the start of New York Fashion Week.

The Yeezus hitmaker is obsessed with fashion and has gone on to create his own clothing line and a highly popular shoe brand, Yeezy.
