The Life of Pablo otherwise known as T.L.O.P , is the seventh album released by the creative Kanye West . The project was under scrutiny as fans eagerly awaited a release date, and multiple name changes . The album seemed to be permanently on the shelf, as Kanye has shifted his focus mainly to fashion, designing sneakers and clothing as part of his Yeezy Season collections . The fashion has been hit or miss to most, with the sneakers garnering more popularity than the clothing. West has also had various public or social media rants , that may be off-putting to some.

Music fans such as myself were worried that Kanye had lost touch of music with his renewed focus . However, T.L.O.P. was worth the wait . The album flows sonically , and follows the style and theme that Kanye has carved out as his personal niche. Kanye continues to push the limits of hip-hop & rap music with his blend of sampling , and futuristic production combined with lyrical content . With star-studded features ranging from: Kid Cudi , Young Thug, Future , Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown and G.O.O.D.  Music newcomer Desiigner, there are various sounds and harmonies that are appealing to the musically inclined .

This album is definitely worth a listen, regardless of your personal opinion of West. The album is being streamed exclusively on Tidal, unless you were lucky enough to yank a download leak. Yeezy pushes the envelope of music  and redefines genres alike, making for a very solid project that will stand to be timeless .
