Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West will debut his Yeezy Season 3 line for Adidas during New York Fashion Week today at Madison Square Garden. With his fashion line dbeut, he has once again, changed the name of his seventh solo album, for the fourth time last night entitled The Life of Pablo, which will stream later today.
West told The New York Times, "It was always a dream to have a listening party at Madison Square Garden," Mr. West tweeted last week. "It was always a dream to show my collection at Madison Square Garden."

What's more interesting is that Kanye's fashion show will be screened at theaters around the globe and of course, live streamed on Tidal! A move like this will place Kanye on the map forever as an innovator and mastermind of what will become the new normal during NYFW.
What's all the hoopla about when it comes to naming an album? Well, we'll have to save that answer for West. Initially, the album was So Help Me God, perhaps a play off of the last album Yeezus. But then, it was changed to Swish and then Wave. The title Wave struck a nerve with rapper Wiz Khalifa, which incited a social media fight that dragged West's wife Kim Kardashian and Khalifa's ex-wife, Amber Rose.
Maybe, the G.O.O.D. Music head figured a better way to brand his album by naming it after the late king of cocaine, Pablo Escobar. Gossip Cop reports, "West hinted he'd be changing the album name yet again. On Tuesday, he teased fans by just giving the initials: T.L.O.P. He even tweeted, "That's the new album anybody who can figure out the title gets tickets to Season 3 and free Yeezys."

Like it or not, the "H.A.M." artists will somehow set the pace for the fashion world, in terms of the production of a fashion show, on a grand stage. The visionary knows that his brand name is on the line, which gives good reason for him to be even more critical of his fashion sense. Even down to the "merchandising stands," "the needlework" and "the seating chart," says the New York Times. West is even involved in ever aspect of the show.
