"Which Pablo? Pablo Picasso, Pablo Escobar of course, Apostle Paul. [Paul] was the strongest influencer of Christianity, Pablo Escobar was the biggest mover of product, and Pablo Picasso was the biggest mover of art. And that mix between message, art, and product is The Life Of Pablo," stated Kanye.

TLOP has become one of the most talked about projects of 2016 so far. The album's unorthodox roll-out has been both praised and criticized.

Initially, Kanye insisted The Life Of Pablo would never be for sale and only available for streaming on Tidal. After a month, the LP became available on other platforms such as Apple Music and Spotify.

While the reversal actually helped Kanye become the first artist to earn a number one album off mostly streaming totals, it also led to a class action lawsuit against the G.O.O.D. Music performer.
