Download The Life of Pablo Zip File Album By Kanye West
American rapper, singer, record producer, businessman, politician, and fashion designer, Kanye Omari West know simply as Kanye West five years old album project “The Life of Pablo” featuring Chance the Rapper, Chris Brown, Desiigner, Frank Ocean, Kelly Price, Kendrick Lamar, Kirk Franklin, Max B, Post Malone, Rihanna, Sampha, Sia, The-Dream, Ty Dolla $ign, VIC MENSA, The Weeknd & Young Thug still competing with newly released once.
The Life of Pablo is the seventh studio album by American rapper and producer Kanye West. It was released on February 14, 2016, through GOOD Music and distributed by Def Jam Recordings. Recording sessions took place from 2013 to 2016, in Italy, Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
The album premiered on February 11, 2016, at Madison Square Garden and was live-streamed at hundreds of theaters across the world and on TIDAL’s streaming service. It was released for download and streaming exclusively on TIDAL on February 14, 2016, with Kanye announcing it wouldn’t be sold for a week after, via Twitter. However, Kanye later said the album would be a TIDAL exclusive in a since-deleted Tweet, and that it would never be sold. This move pushed TIDAL to #1 on the App Store.
During an interview with The Breakfast Club, West described the album: This album’s just embracing the music, embracing joy, and being of service to the people. I just hope that people like it and enjoy it, you know? That’s it.
The title, which was derived from a lyric on “No More Parties In L.A.,” takes on many personas, referring to Pablo Picasso, an artist, Pablo Escobar, a notorious drug dealer, and Paul the Apostle, whose name is Pablo in Spanish.
The tracklist was initially revealed on January 25, 2016, in its incomplete form; with updated versions being periodically sent out via various social media accounts. You can view the entire tracklist history here. Kanye called the album a “living breathing changing creative expression.” On April 1, 2016, the album was finally made available to stream on other streaming sites, such as Spotify and Apple Music. He also made it available to purchase directly from his website. On June 14, 2016, the twentieth and final track, “Saint Pablo,” was added.
Kanye West The Life of Pablo Review
The Life of Pablo is, accordingly, the first Kanye West album that’s just an album: No major statements, no reinventions, no zeitgeist wheelie-popping. It’s probably his first full-length that won’t activate a new sleeper cell of 17-year-old would-be rappers and artists. He’s changed the genre’s DNA with every album, to the point where each has inspired a generation of direct offspring, and now everywhere he looks, he sees mirrors. “See, I invented Kanye, it wasn’t any Kanyes, and now I look and look around and there’s so many Kanyes,” he raps wryly on “I Love Kanye.” The message seems clear: He’s through creating new Kanyes, at least for now. He’s content to just stand among them, both those of his own creation and their various devotees.
Kanye’s second child Saint was born in early December, and there’s something distinctly preoccupied about this whole project—it feels wry, hurried, mostly good-natured, and somewhat sloppy. Like a lot of new parents, Kanye feels laser-focused on big stuff—love, serenity, forgiveness, karma—and a little frazzled on the details. “Ultralight Beam” opens with the sound of a 4-year-old preaching gospel, some organ, and a church choir: “This is a God dream,” goes the refrain. But everything about the album’s presentation—the churning tracklist, the broken promises to premiere it here or there, the scribbled guest list—feels like Kanye ran across town to deliver a half-wrapped gift to a group birthday party to which he was 10 minutes late.
Thankfully, he’s bringing a Kanye album, and Kanye albums make pretty goddamn good gifts. His devotion to the craft of album-making remains his greatest talent. Albums are his legacy, what he knows, deep down, will endure after the circus of attention he maintains around him subsides. His ability to package hundreds of stray threads into a whole that feels not just thrilling, but *inevitable—*at this, he is better than everyone, and he throws all of his best tricks into The Life of Pablo to remind us. He picks the right guests and gives them idealized settings, making people you don’t care about sound fantastic and people you do care about sound immortal. Chance the Rapper, a spiritual heir to backpack-and-a-Benz Kanye if there ever was one, is given the spotlight on the opener “Ultralight Beam,” and uses his dazed, happy verse to quote both “Otis” and the bonus track to Late Registration. His joy is palpable, and it’s clear he has waited his entire adult life to be featured on a Kanye album. On the other hand, “Fade” pits Future knockoff Post Malone, of all people, against a sample of Chicago house legend Larry Heard’s “Mystery of Love” and a flip of Motown blues rock band Rare Earth’s “I Know I’m Losing You” and rigs the mix so that Malone, somehow, sounds more important than both of them.
This moment is also a reminder of Kanye’s audacious touch with huge, immediately recognizable pieces of musical history—his best work as a producer has always drawn from iconic songs so venerated most sane people wouldn’t dare touch them, from “Gold Digger” to “Blood on the Leaves” and beyond. He doesn’t just sample these songs, he climbs in and joyrides them like the Maybach in the “Otis” video. On “Famous,” he does it twice, first by matching up Nina Simone’s “Do What You Gotta Do” with Rihanna, who sings the song’s hook before Nina does, and then with Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam,” which gets flipped so it sits atop a chorale-like chord progression. It sounds like a dancehall remix of Pachelbel’s Canon, and it’s the most joyful two minutes of music on the album.
