Kanye West's Real Album Title Is Here (Maybe)

Until he changes it again.

Remember when Kanye West promised a free pair of Yeezys to the person who could figure out the name of his new album? The rapper revealed via Twitter that the masterpiece formerly known as both Swish and Waves is going by T.L.O.P (opens in new tab), which is apparently an acronym for The Life of Pablo

The album title appears to be a reference to Pablo Picasso, a mere plebeian artist that totally wishes he were as brilliant as Mr. West. 

'Ye made a reference (opens in new tab) to the painter during a speech at Oxford University Museum last March, saying: "My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become Picasso or greater. That always sounds so funny to people, comparing yourself to someone who has done so much, and that's a mentality that suppresses humanity."

So true, Kanye, so true. Also, in case you can't read his handwriting, here's the full track list from T.L.O.P, an album that probably has The Ghost of Picasso using a million emoji heart-eyes.

"Ultra Light Beams"

"Father Stretch My Hands Pt 1 & Pt 2"

"Freestyle 4"






"Real Friends"


We expect the album to drop any moment now, so if you need to sign up for Tidal (yes, it's still a thing), now's the time to do so.
