Kanye West Reveals the Real "Pablo"

It’s not who you think it is.

By //Music

When Kanye West finally chose The Life of Pablo from a strangely controversial, revolving door of album titles, it was assumed that the rapper was referencing the artist Pablo Picasso or drug lord Pablo Escobar with his latest project. According to a string of recent tweets, however, it appears as if the Apostle Paul — “Pablo” in Spanish — was West’s real inspiration in the naming of his new record, which is in keeping with his claims that T.L.O.P. was conceived as a “gospel” album. Equally noteworthy was the artist’s hint that “in a few hours the journey begins,” which could be a hint at the LP’s impending release. Check out West’s tweets below and stay tuned for updates as they arrive.
