Well, this is pretty impressive regardless of which way you look at it. As Pigeons and Planes reports, a Japanese producer known as TOYOMU created his own version of Kanye West‘s recently-released studio album The Life of Pablo. The catch: he hadn’t even heard the project yet. TOYOMU is based in Kyoto, Japan, where TIDAL has yet to launch. So, the up-and-coming artist took it upon himself to craft his version of the LP, utilizing information from WhoSampled and lyrics from Genius to piece together the effort. Speaking to P&P, TOYOMU explains:

“In Japan, we couldn’t listen to TLOP officially because of Tidal…Subscription services in Japan are too slow, most people are still using iTunes and buying CDs. I thought it might be a good idea to make the whole album without listening to it, [but] maybe it’s reverse thinking.”

You can check out the entire project for free here. Just a few days ago, Kanye West put up TLOP for wide release.
