In the past few weeks, Kanye West has been rather controversial on Twitter, voicing his opinions on subjects that he should have just left alone. But despite this, the rapper has announced the release of a new album, which will be titled ‘Ye’.
The album dropped today, June 1st, a day after the album’s listening party event, which was hosted by comedian and actor, Chris Rock, and took place in Jackson, Wyoming. But, before we listen to any more songs that talk about scooping poop, a few people who attended last night’s event, have taken to Twitter to review the album.

This #Wyoming album is great! So much better than Pablo. Glad Kanye was trolling with that poopedy scoop stuff. Back in old school form.

This album sounds like Yeezus had a baby with College Dropout but cheated with Life of Pablo and was adopted by Graduation. #YE

The album appears to have an “old school Kanye” vibe and has been compared to the likes of one of the rapper’s earlier albums, ‘College Dropout’. Some have even called it a ‘piece of art’.
This album is already a piece of art.. Kanye always finds a way to outdo himself when you think there is nothing left to do. Always. #YE

However, some people are not very pleased. The album has been considered boring, and not very unique, which is odd for Kanye, as he is one very unique guy (a bit eccentric, too).
One listen Kanye review:
The beats are cool.
Lyrically, you're not getting anything crazy insightful. Meh
I need more Kid Cudi in 2018
WTF was that Nicki Minaj voicemail?#Ye

Bruh, these Kanye bars are all types of cringe. And he swore these rhymes were that business. If you flew to Wyoming for 7 tracks of mediocrity…oof. pic.twitter.com/OoSg038IqM

However, Yeezy will always have rhythm in his heart and a trick up his sleeve, and we’re sure this album is going to be one of his best yet. With the lead up to the album being slightly rocky, and many deciding that they no longer support West due to his opinions, the album listening party event has definitely turned people around, and the support for Kanye and his music has never been stronger.
If you would like to watch the listening party, you can catch it on the WAV app.
