Early this morning, Kanye West debuted his Pablo pop-up shop in Chicago. The only issue? It was actually in Northbrook, IL. Northbrook Court Shopping Mall to be exact. Many fans and stans didn’t seem to care, however, as thousands showed up to purchase the merchandise, with lines wrapping around the suburban mall.

But while some Ye fans didn’t mind, others took to Twitter to display their distaste. Many thought it was in bad taste to put a “Chicago” shop in the suburbs, making it difficult for city kids — especially from the far South and West Side’s — to attend.

To be fair, Kanye probably had no control as to where the shop opened.

Check out some pics of the pop-up shop below as well as Tweets from disgruntled Chicagoans.

For the launch of his new Beats 1 show, Travis Scott took the time to premier this new remix of Alicia Keys’ new hit, which he graced along with Yeezy. This release comes days after the announcement that La Flame’s new effort, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight would be released later this month. Based on the history between the two, should we expect a feature from Ye on the project? We gotta wait until August 26th to find out, but for now peep the two’s latest collabo.

Kanye West Announces Collaborative Album with Drake

Co0wGgFUMAAUU0O

Haven’t we heard this before? I believe we have, but tonight at OVO Fest in Toronto, Kanye, who showed up as a surprise guest, announced to the crowd that a joint album from he and Drake is 100% in the works.

Will this actually happen? Will it drop on Tidal or Apple Music? Will it drop on Apple Music after Apple Music buys Tidal? Is that sale even happening? Is this album even happening? I don’t have the answers, Sway.

But I do know that Kanye took the stage with Drake tonight and made this promise to the crowd, and now the world at large. Call Kanye what you want, just don’t call him a liar. Because a liar he is not. I just worry that a tech company — the new record company — could bury it before birth.

Only time will tell.

Update: Watch footage of the announce below.

Drake Brings Out Kanye in Chicago, Kanye Then Goes To Harold’s

Can you believe it?

Drake really brought out Ye last night at his Summer 16 tour stop at the United Center. I’ve been doing this a while, and I haven’t seen someone bring out Kanye since Jay Z’s American Gangster 24-hour tour stop at the House of Blues in 2007, where Jay also brought out Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel and Freeway (talk about a bygone era).

But yes, Drake shut the city down last night when he brought Ye to the stage — an act no one saw coming. That was major, and proves just how much juice Drake has. Now, no word on what Kanye also might be doing in the city, but he could be sticking around for a few days. Who knows, it is Lollapalooza, after all. I do know that he went to Harold’s after his appearance at the UC — and we have video evidence of that below (it was the Harold’s on Washington — West Loop) That’s hilarious considering this Tweet I sent out yesterday. 

Update: it appears Kanye went to Harold’s pre-show, and then attended PRYSM nightclub afterwards with Chance The Rapper and Drake.
