Kanye West Shares Full List of Credits for 'The Life of Pablo'
Published Feb 17, 2016Kanye West sort of released his latest album The Life of Pablo this weekend — which is to say that it's only available on Tidal and he might still be tweaking the final version of it. Regardless of when we'll finally get to hear the finished product, West has now shared a detailed list of credits for the buzzed-about album.
Some are more obvious than others after a cursory listen — guests like Chance the Rapper, The-Dream, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Young Thug, the Weeknd, Ty Dolla $ign and Kendrick Lamar all make appearances on the mic, while some collaborators are now getting credit for their work behind the scenes — like West's children North and Saint, who are both billed as creative consultants.
West also details every sample used on the album, which includes pieces from Arthur Russell ("30 Hours"), Goldfrapp ("Freestyle 4") and Nina Simone ("Famous").
Even Drake and Nelly get a shout-out, the former for "Facts" (which riffs on "Jumpman") and "30 Hours," while the latter gets his name on the list for West's use of lines referencing "E.I." and "Hot in Herre" in "30 Hours."
Check out the full list in all of its meticulous detail over at West's official website, where The Life of Pablo is now streaming (via Tidal, of course).
