Kanye West took to Twitter on February 26th to announce the title of his 9th studio album, Turbo Grafx 16. With his latest album, The Life of Pablo in the books fans can look forward to another project very soon from West as he stated the album would be released this summer.
The album could be here to stay but maybe not the title. The Life of Pablo had 3 title changes before being released. The name, for now, seems fitting as many West fans claim he has returned to a deeper and more lyrical form. The name Turbo Grafx 16 relates to a Neo Geo game console he and a friend used to play in his younger years so one could only imagine what message West will send with this album come summer 2016.
The Life of Pablo received high praise for the product but was lost to the world of Piracy as the project was subjected to a $10 million loss due to illegal downloads. Due to the situation, one could expect plenty of campaigning, marketing, and new music from the Chicago rapper leading up to not only his highly anticipated tour but his new album as well. His now very active Twitter could keep fans updated if nothing else.
