Kanye West to Reveal 'Famous' Visual at Giant L.A. Event

Kanye West has a lot of grandiose ambitions, one of which is reimagining the way albums are released. His latest record, Feb. 14's The Life of Pablo—which he updated last week—is a perpetual saga, and its latest chapter will see the artist debut a visualization to compliment the song "Famous" at The Forum in Los Angeles. The venue fits more than 17,000 people.

The "Famous" premiere will be livestreamed globally by Tidal, just like February's TLOP listening party at Madison Square Garden. In a press release, the streaming service was scant on details, but tickets for the event—which has yet to be given an actual date—can be purchased at 10 a.m. PST on Thursday morning

The rapper's Saint Pablo Tour will make four stops at The Forum in October, so perhaps the event will take place then? If you recall, "Famous" is the lucid track that reignited Yeezy's well-documented quarrels with Taylor Swift, so expect mud-slinging.
