Kanye West dives into drama surrounding him on new album, Ye

Though all of this is incredibly impressive-especially when you consider Blanco is only 30 years old-it seems one of his biggest career milestones was reached Thursday night, when Kanye West dropped his highly anticipated eighth studio album Ye. Ye features Kanye's sui generis production, though he only occasionally manages to summon the otherworldly, atmosphere-shifting feel of his best work. Pusha T, 41, recently revealed that West, 40, paid $85,000 to obtain the picture as a last-minute change to a previously selected album cover.

Maybe you've read that the cover of Pusha-T's new album "Daytona" is a picture of Whitney Houston's bathroom counter littered with the residue of her hard-partying lifestyle.

Kanye West is many things to different people.

Further to his album art, West also raps about his struggles with drugs and mental health. Not surprisingly, West's lyrics cover a wide range of topics, with the rapper not afraid to touch on Donald Trump's affair with Stormy Daniels and the more recent incident involving Tristan Thompson cheating on a pregnant Khloe Kardashian.

Kanye West headed to the mountains to debut his new album, "YE". "And I'm just the person to do it", he told the magazine. Rather it's a comment on Kanye the artist, the figure that made us fall in love with the self-aggrandizing misogynist who nevertheless believed black lives matter, or so we thought.

Finally, the father of three confirmed his bipolar diagnosis, calling it his "superpower" saying it "ain't no disability, I'm a superhero".

Despite the controversies, fans are reacting positively to "Ye".
