With this Kanye’s ego is through the roof, like it needed a boost….that’s Kim’s job. Kanye West appeared on Steve Harvey’s radio show on Tuesday morning where Kanye teases about taking “The Life Of Pablo” on Tour in September….but we all know this isn’t a fairy tale for Kanye, when he says he is going to do something he does it, at times impulsively….yes, but that is what we have grown to love and appreciate about this artist. Hopefully the tour will be more planned out then his album release was. While they have been plotting on ideas for months Kanye’s creative and management team is sure to pull off the best tour yet for Mr. Wests’ seventh number one album.
