The time has come.

After a strange, controversial couple months—even by Kanye's standards—it's finally time to hear the music. Kanye West's eight solo studio album, Ye, has arrived.

Before the album dropped, Pusha T explained to fans that Kanye's political thoughts would be on the album. "When 'Ye's album comes out, he's going to address his true perspective," he said. "I feel like his messaging is A1 and you guys are going to get all the answers you're looking for."
