The album was played to the public for the first time at a listening session in Jackson Hole with the whole event streamed to the world via the WAV app. The album was originally being sold via a merch bundle on his website and due for release on June 1, according NME.
The record is dense with references, ranging from Stormy Daniels, North Korea, Will Smith and Martin, Russell Simmons, and Ye’s own comments regarding slavery as a choice.
