Kanye West debuted his new album Thursday night in Wyoming to a couple hundred fans.

The rapper's eighth studio album is now available on streaming services following an exclusive listening party at his property in Wyoming. It's certainly one of the more unique venues to have had an event like this, and the attractive location apparently inspired West to take up his iPhone camera and get his own landscape images. Brown believes the image, which West licensed for $85,000 to use as Pusha T's Daytona album cover, is "in really bad taste".

- Russell Simmons, who, after Kanye's comments about slavery to TMZ and to Charlamagne Tha God about a mental breakdown, said, "Kanye is suffering, he is unravelling in public".

Before we share some of Twitter's reactions, re-visit the album below.

This is the first Kanye album since The Life Of Pablo.

The 7-song, 23-minute album is an alarm alerting that the Kanye bubble has burst.


The rapper also touches on the #MeToo movement, almost losing Kim Kardashian, Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal and his hopes for his daughters on Ye.

Despite starting to sell official Wyoming merchandise for the album, it's not now clear when fans can expect "YE" to be released on traditional streaming platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify and more. That's my superpower, n-ga ain't no disability I'm a superhero!

"I Thought About Killing You"Today I seriously thought about killing you / I contemplated, premeditated murder / And I think about killing myself, and I love myself way more than I love you, so".

"Now I'm on 50 blogs gettin" 50 calls / My wife callin", screamin', say, "we "bout to lose it all!'" He added text that reads, 'I hate being bi-polar its awesome'.

The rapper is heard saying: "She told you to not do that s**t, she told you that you gon' f**k the money up".

Many were not expecting this kind of admiration for Kanye's recent work given his recent social commentary.
