Kanye is back on Twitter. Here are the highlights.
Love him or hate him, Kanye West is hard to ignore. His twitter became legendary in 2015/16 with its constant flood of controversial to inspiring to downright weird content in the run up to his most recent album The Life of Pablo.
But not long after, he deleted his Twitter.
Well, now he’s back, and it’s as wild as ever:
1. New Album(s)
June 1st— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 19, 2018
He announced that he has a new solo album out on June 1st, as well as a separate album of collaborations with rapper-producer Kid Cudi (who you’ll definitely remember from Day’n’Nite) out on June 8th.
often people working with the existing consciousness are jealous of those who are more in touch and they become hard-core capitalist in hopes of creating the illusion that the value of money is worth more than the value of time and friends— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 16, 2018
Before returning to Twitter he announced his desire to release a philosophy book called Break the Simulation that would talk about time, consciousness and capitalism. But then there came the waves of musings on his Twitter, which he then revealed to be the book itself, written in real time. Some of it is inspiring, some is bizarre, and some of it very meme-worthy.
truth is my goal. Controversy is my gym. I'll do a hundred reps of controversy for a 6 pack of truth— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 19, 2018
3. 'Yeezy Slides'

He used the platform to promote loads of stuff from his fashion line, with these ‘shoes’ grabbing a lot of attention… I mean he probably knows a lot more about fashion than I do, but they’re not gorgeous tbh…

4. Candace Owens
I love the way Candace Owens thinks— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 21, 2018
He’s also caused a bit of a storm by praising controversial right-wing personality Candace Owens who has appeared on ‘Infowars’ and works for ‘Turning Point USA’ – it’s not clear what he sees in her, but hopefully he isn’t going down the Morrissey path, the Smiths frontman who gradually became a full-blown alt-right nationalist.
remember Morrissey from the smiths? this is him now. feel old yet? pic.twitter.com/w8wDSfS3pZ— rhi 🅥 (@rrrrrrhiannon) April 22, 2018
The mixture of controversy and excitement around the famous rapper is stronger than ever, and whilst a lot of Twitter will always be so appalled, his core fans will be having a celebration at all this buzz.
