Kanye West, New Music, Real Friends

Kanye West

Kanye West wouldn't be Kanye West if he didn't premiere his newest album in the most over-the-top way possible.

Yes, the rapper plans to debut Waves in what we're sure will be a sell-out concert at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11. But that's not even the beginning of it!

Not only will he take over the highly acclaimed venue, but he'll also broadcast the show live via satellite in select cinemas around the world.  (You can see the full list of participating theaters here).

The event had been rumored for several weeks after appearing on Ticketmaster's website, but 'Ye only confirmed it on Twitter Monday.

"SEASON 3 / WAVES / MADISON SQUARE GARDEN / INTERNATIONAL CINEMAS," he tweeted along with a poster and link to the event page.

The show will also include a performance by Vanessa Beecroft, the artist who helped conceptualize Yeezy Season 1 and 2.

Kanye's album Waves—which was originally titled Swish—includes the recently released tracks, "No More Parties in LA" and "Facts."

Kanye West vs Wiz Khalifa


Meanwhile, news of the album premiere will help deviate some of the attention from his much-talked about Twitter war with Wiz Khalifa last week. The "Real Friends" rapper went off on Amber Rose's baby daddy, saying Wiz "let a stripper trap him," referring to Rose's previous career. He claimed Wiz "wouldn't have a child" if it wasn't for Kanye, saying he "owns" his two-year-old son, Sebastian.

However, Kanye—father to North West and Saint West—has since deleted the controversial tweets from the tired and vowed to never bring a child into a heated situation again.

"God's dream...Never speak on kids again...all love...all blessings..." he tweeted.
