Kanye West has finally dropped his highly anticipated eighth studio album, Ye. The “Lift Yourself” rapper hosted a listening party for his new album on Thursday, May 31, which brought out nearly all of hip-hop.
Yeezy debuted Ye at a ranch outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and even arranged for members of the media and a few chosen DJs to be flown into the usually quiet town by private jet (talk about “The Good Life.”). A few lucky fans were also gifted a ticket to the once-in-a-lifetime event.
The stars in attendance included: Nas, Chris Rock, Jonah Hill, Teyana Taylor, Kid Cudi, 2 Chainz, Pusha T (yes, he paused his beef with Drake long enough to make an appearance), Scott Disick, Big Sean, Damon Dash, Lil Yachty, Scooter Braun, Fabolous, Desiigner, and of course, Ye’s wife, Kim Kardashian West.
While all eyes were on Kanye, who didn’t disappoint in the fashion arena (we’ll talk about his listening party outfit in a few), all ears were tuned into the seven-song album, which featured songs about suicidal thoughts, murder, and Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal!
