There was lots of speculation as to what Kanye West‘s T.L.O.P. album title stood for as seen earlier today (Feb. 10) when Twitter users made their best guess. The rapper has put all the speculation to rest as he tweeted out a tracklist for his new album, which included the full title for the project: The Life of Pablo. Did you have that one in the betting pool? Probably not.
A whole new question that might arise though is which of the many famous (or infamous) Pablo’s is Kanye West referring to here. The best guess is Pablo Picasso as Kanye expressed how he would have wanted to reach Picasso’s lofty status if he pursued art during a lecture at Oxford University.
“My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become [Pablo] Picasso or greater,” West said.
Along with the revelation of his album title, ‘Ye also revealed the project’s official tracklist to the world. Many people had worked at deciphering the tracklist, but West has made it clear now as The Life of Pablo will apparently have just 10 tracks. It certainly looks like a less is more approach will be employed by Kanye West this time around.
The only real mystery left at this point is the cover artwork. But as fans saw on Yeezus, the Chicago MC is not afraid of keeping it very simple when it comes to the cover. As for now, everyone is patiently waiting to hear what he has cooked up for The Life of Pablo tomorrow (Feb. 11) when the album drops.
