In an interview with BigBoyTV during his listening party in Wyoming on June 1, Kanye revealed that he “completely redid” his album. “With what the universe was giving me, I wanted something that matched that energy,” he said. The first version of the album reportedly included more lyrics with his political views, but he chose to take them out because he didn’t want them to be turned into headlines. “We know now it’s all headlines and every bar can be used,” he explained. “There were even bars that we had about that. I took them off the album. It was just too sensitive. It was about that topic. I was like, ‘Yo, I’m going to just chill right now.”
