These Kanye West Memes Are A+
Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that on Thursday, Kanye West tweeted the album cover art for The Life Of Pablo, his seventh studio album (and self-proclaimed "best album of all time"). After changing the name about, uh, three times, the release of his cover art came as a welcome surprise considering the anticipation. However, in addition to stunning fans with its release, it also drove fans to produce a lot of hilarious Kanye West memes relating to the cover — probably because West is taking his damn time to release the album itself.
Though West did put thought into the artwork, turning to Belgian artist Peter De Potter to create the visuals for his baby, the image is quite simple — honestly, too simple for West. With just an orange background, the title repeated over and over again in black lettering that overlaps itself occasionally, and a wedding photo of what may be his parents' wedding ceremony (I guess he is a family man after all), the album art seems almost too subdued for an album that West's been hyping so much. Fans, of course, felt similarly — and they immediately took to Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr to turn the 38-year-old rapper's cover into some amazing memes that should go down in history as some of the Internet's greatest.
Just in case you can't get to your social media accounts right away, I've rounded up the 16 most hysterical memes of West's highly-anticipated new album cover art, you never knew you needed in life. We may not know if West's The Life Of Pablo is a winner yet (just release the thing already!), but at least it's easy to tell that these definitely are.
