Back in March, video footage of yet another Kanye West rant surfaced online. Yeezy had taken over Yo Gotti’s The Art of Hustle release party in Los Angeles, and as the images began to circulate, there was Yeezy, standing atop a table beside Gotti, reminding the club–and, ostensibly, the world–that he was a Black artist pushing the envelope, trying to go where no rapper had ever gone. His forays into fashion, production, music and design would make the world way sexier than it was pre-Yeezy Season 3. Pre-DONDA. Pre-Pablo.
West’s own album, The Life of Pablo, had been released less than a month prior, and fans’ heads were still spinning from the album’s “updates.” After its initial release, Kanye made minor changes to “Ultralight Beam” and “Famous,” replaced his solo version of “Wolves” with the Vic Mensa and SIA-featured version, and separated Frank Ocean‘s chilling “Wolves” outro from the song, making it its own track on the album. In the midst of West’s rant at Gotti’s party, he debuted a new song, “Saint Pablo,” featuring Sampha and a sample of Jay Z‘s “Where I’m From.” There was no mention of if or when it would be released, but fans geeked over the high quality YouTube rip for months.
Apparently, 4 months after Pablo‘s release, West is still not done making changes to the album. Last night, it mysteriously disappeared from TIDAL, and we now know why. It was receiving another update. You can now officially listen to “Saint Pablo,” now that it’s officially been added to TLOP.
