Kanye West


Kanye West is changing his mind a lot lately.

After last week's Twitter feud with Wiz Khalifa, which has since been laid to rest, Yeezy is taking back even more of his comments. Kanye previously announced that he was changing the name of his album from Swish to Waves and that it would be the "best album of all time."

He added, "This is not album of the year. This is album of the life."

A pretty bold statement, but he's a pretty bold guy. The fight with Wiz began after 'Ye switched the album name, so after clearing the air with the "Black and Gold" artist, Kanye felt compelled to tone down his attitude regarding his new record.

"Out of respect for Q-Tip, Puff, Hov, Lauren, Pharcyde, Mary, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, James, Pete Rock, Pac, Marvin....this new album is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest just one of..." he wrote late Tuesday. "So many musicians touch my life and made me who I am...I want to make something great to honor my idols..."

Classic Kanye: humble yet still confident.

Now that he has put his fight with Wiz to bed and Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose are copacetic, it's time to focus on Waves, which is getting quite the extravagant treatment for its debut. Kanye will start by premiering Waves at what will most likely be a sold-out concert at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11. But if you can't make it, don't worry. He's also broadcasting the event via satellite in select theaters around the world.

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

Waves includes the recently released tracks, "No More Parties in L.A." and "Facts." As soon as fans get to hear what's supposed to be "one of the greatest albums," we're sure the Internet will be going just as crazy as it did when the Wiz-Kanye fight blew up. Whether it will be freaking out in a positive or negative way remains to be seen.

The countdown to Waves begins!
