Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

For those of us that work in the Kanye Kontent (kk) industry, this week — this year, really — has been a fucking headache. Make up your mind, Yeezy! And stop tweeting! As Stereogum readers and Tidal subscribers are already aware, Tidal Livestream Of Pain The Life Of Pablo got its grand premiere at MSG yesterday. We sent Collin uptown to take it in and chill with Lamar Odom and Rosie O’Donnell. (Tragically he came back with no merch for his coworkers.) While we continue to wait for the official Pablo stream, there’s “30 Hours,” TMZ, and Kanye with Thugger on SNL tomorrow to keep us from getting distracted. Maybe a Grammys moment on the horizon, too. And if this album doesn’t drop tonight, continually refreshing your Twitter feed is a romantic way to woo your valentine this weekend.

Commenting on the drug price hike is a tad bit hypocritical of Ghost considering the absurd price of the Wu-Tang album; obviously one is much more important than the other, but the point remains. Shkreli is an outwardly expressive asshole, but he is not unique in his taking advantage of the ability to raise prices in order to attain massive profits in the Big Pharm world.
