According to Ye, fellow Chicago artist Chance The Rapper was the reason for the delay. In a string of tweets from both parties, they were busy putting the finishing touches on the track “Waves,” which has now been etched on that viral photo of T.L.O.P.‘s track list. But for the Acid Rap lyricist, it was an uphill battle to get the melody on the album.

“I fought everyone to keep Waves on the album. I spent all night finishing it,” he wrote on Twitter. “The world is better because of it.”

He also gave props to Rihanna for her NYFW debut with her highly-anticipated clothing line FENTY X PUMA. He mentioned with the premiere of her collection that the “paradigm has shifted.” The “Wolves” rapper also made it clear that fashion “ain’t no joke for me… It’s a way of life… creative expression and industry…”
