If you look up Kanye West on the periodic table (just pretend that’s a thing), you’d find his name carved under Francium, — the most unstable element in the world. The rapper has been showing the world just how unpredictable his mind is, changing his upcoming album’s title back and forth and sporadically ranting about random shit on Twitter as of late.
West took to twitter earlier this week to share the most recent of changes to his upcoming album name. He asked fans to guess what the initials T.L.O.P. stood for, promising them a pretty sweet gift in return if they could.
That's the new album anybody who can figure out the title gets tickets to Season 3 and free Yeezys

Naturally the name which he announced last night, The Life of Pablo, wasn’t an easy guess, leaving the prize unclaimed. The announcement also came with a full tracklist, hopefully solidifying that this time it’s really for real.

Previously, the album started out as So Help Me God, then it was changed a couple months later to SWISH. A couple weeks ago Kanye once again changed it to WAVES, prompting a lengthy twitter rampage against Wiz Khalifa who he thought was insulting his wife, but was actually just talking about weed.
West has been dropping new tunes from the album, reusing the G.O.O.D. Friday release model (dropping new singles every friday) that preceded My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2011, including the Kendrick Lamar collab “No More Parties In L.A.”
West hasn’t posted any new tracks in a couple weeks, but has promised to begin releasing new tracks soon.
For now, we’ll just have to wait an see if there will be another change to the album, but we strongly endorse the following:
