Kanye West Writes 86-Tweet Opus - Speakeasy - WSJ →

Kanye West took to Twitter yesterday to debunk a fake Twitter page devoted to his clothing line – but then must have sensed an opportunity to air his thoughts on a number of issues and to promote his design company, Donda. In his 86-tweet opus, he quoted Leonardo da Vinci and George Bernard Shaw.

The CD edition of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s first collaborative album, Watch the Throne, hits Best Buy stores tomorrow, but Rolling Stone has a sneak peek at the gilded packaging that Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci designed for Watch the Throne’s physical album release. (The album was released on iTunes on Sunday.)

Deeming the large-scale rap collaboration as “one of the biggest joint efforts in music history,” a representative for the  Givenchy explained that Tisci brought bold colors and angular lines together to depict the “masculinity of two of the most iconic rap figures of our time.”

But in the Rolling Stone review, Jody Rosen writes that this is more than just a tricked-out “bling album.” Jay-Z and Kanye “may be obsessed with their own king-size lives, but the tone here is serious, sober, weighty.”
