AceShowbiz - %cKanye West%'s new album is finally here. After two years in the making as well as numerous name changes, tracklist updates and delays, "The Life of Pablo" was made available for streaming exclusively on Tidal.
The follow-up to 2013's "Yeezus" now has 18 songs including 'Ye's collaborations with %cRihanna%, %cChris Brown%, %cThe Weeknd%, %cKendrick Lamar%, %cChance the Rapper%, %cYoung Thug%, %cFrank Ocean%, %cThe-Dream%, %cKid Cudi%, %cKirk Franklin%, %cPost Malone%, %cTy Dolla $ign% and more.
Some of those tracks were debuted during the Yeezy 3 fashion show at New York's Madison Square Garden a few days ago. West also performed live "High Lights" and "Ultra Light Beams" off the project on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend.
On Tidal, subscribers can listen to all "The Life of Pablo" cuts in full, but non-subscribers will only get 30-second previews of each track. You can also purchase the album for $20 through KanyeWest.com now or wait until it hits iTunes and other major retailers in the coming days.
Now that "T.L.O.P." is available for streaming, Martin Shkreli has made shocking claim that he's lost $15 million trying to buy the album all for himself. The price-gouging pharma CEO, who publicly offered West money to prevent him from releasing the album for public, said in a string of profanity-filled Tweets on Sunday, February 14 that he had sent a man named Daquan, whom he believed had a connection to West, a payment of $15 million via bitcoin.
After learning that the rapper's album was going to be on Tidal, he wrote, "Who the f**k has my fifteen million dollars?? I need my money back this isn't a f**king joke WTF. Call the police this is bulls**t." However, Skhreli's pretty confident he's getting back his money. In some follow-up tweets, he said he'd contacted Bitcoin's creator Sitoshi, who had agreed to help.

"I hope you all enjoy this stupid music SO much and the fact it has brought me so much pain and suffering. I quit rap," wrote Skhreli, who previously bought %cWu-Tang Clan%'s one-of-a-kind album for $2 million.
"And second of all I can make the money back faster than anyone so the joke is on YOU if you think I even care," he added. "Also, idiots, I've gotten in touch with Sitoshi (Bitcoin's creator) and he's agreed to help me get my money back. I always win."
