Despite leaking four days before its official June 18 release, Kanye West’s Yeezus album still made its debut to a Los Angeles crowd on Friday night. Several tastemakers were invited to hear West’s album in full at LA’s Milk Studio Hanger, where the center of the room was transformed into a vortex of speakers that made you want to puke during certain bass-heavy tracks. Among the guests were besties Tyler, the Creator and Justin Bieber, who drank Yeezus juice (Corona’s and vodka dressed in the Yeezus‘ album cover’s orange tape) and bopped around to the new tracks. Bieber even offered his own review of the experience:
Fact. @kanyewest new album is the truth.

In other Bieber, the Creator news, this dynamic duo is sticking up for another. Video footage of Tyler, the Creator speeding through Bieber’s gated neighborhood in the pop star’s Ferrari has been handed over to police. The incident made headlines after Bieber’s neighbor Keyshawn Johnson went apeshit and approached Bieber (and the police) over the speeding Ferrari endangering his kids. L.A. County Sheriff’s Department says the surveillance video shows Tyler pulling into Bieber’s driveway at the wheel of the Ferrari on the night of May 27. Bieber is facing a possible misdemeanor reckless driving charge, but the video could exonerate him. Tyler took to Twitter to admit he was the one behind the wheel.
