Kanye West has been teasing the world with the release date of his new album, The Life of Pablo, but finally he's put all uncertainty to rest. West dropped TLOP immediately not at all immediately after blurting out the "IT'S OUT NOW!" news six times faster than Miley Cyrus did for Dead Petz at the end of the VMAs. Roughly 40 minutes after the "Ultra Light Beam" performance on SNL, the album became available for purchase on for $20; shortly after, it reverted to streaming-only for seven days, at which point it will go on sale again. Stream The Life of Pablo on Tidal now.

Check out the SNL announcement, made at 120 mph alongside Chance the RapperThe-Dream, Kelly Price, Kirk Franklin, a big-ass choir and The-Dream's hat:

On Thursday, Kanye unveiled the Yeezy Season 3 fashion line at the sold-out Madison Square Garden and also played the album publicly for the first time; the Tidal livestream of the event has been available as a replayable 86-minute video since.
