Kanye West Adds ‘Saint Pablo’ Track to ‘TLOP’ Amid Tour Announcement
Kanye West's newly announced Saint Pablo tour — which will kick off later this summer — has got its new official anthem.
Last night (June 14), the rapper and producer, whose The Life of Pablo was released in February, continued to treat his seventh LP like a work in progress by adding a 20th track, "Saint Pablo," which features Sampha. The song is a six-minute personal narrative that chronicles West's life in business and the public eye. There are mentions of Twitter and Instagram, illegal downloads of his album and crowd-sourcing amid steady piano progressions that are once punctuated by gunfire.
"People trying to say I'm going crazy on Twitter / My friends said to stay low / I guess it's hard to decipher all of the deals, especially when you got family members on payroll," he laments (hey, Kardashians!).
West's Saint Pablo tour get going in Indianapolis in August before winding through North America and wrapping up in Las Vegas in October. In May, the rapper told Steve Harvey on Harvey's radio show that fans should expect something truly magical when they come out for shows.
"My tour game is strong. My tour game is unprecedented,” he said. “I’m trying to literally inspire these kids the way Disney inspired me when I first saw the original Star Wars."
