Kanye West Launches Humility Tour 2016 With Shocking Confession

“Waves” rapper passes olive branch to social media foe — AND admits that there may be better albums than his new one

Does the New Year come with a new Kanye West? While it’s still too early to tell (fingers crossed), the “808s & Heartbreak” rapper’s uncharacteristic behavior on Tuesday indicated that it may.

West’s script flip began Tuesday afternoon with a tweet suggesting that he’s buried the hatchet with rapper Wiz Khalifa, with whom he’d been engaging in a very public war of words in recent weeks.

“Me and Wiz spoke yesterday. Great convo. All positive,” West wrote.

In January, after Khalifa accused West of ripping off rapper Max B by renaming his upcoming album “Waves,” West hissed back: “Don’t ever come out the side of your neck at me,” among other things, in a jeremiad extending past 20 tweets.

Normally, West’s olive-branch moment with Khalifa this week may have just been an effort to put a nettlesome issue behind him (or maybe to stem any more accusations revolving around his sex life).

However, that was followed up by an even more jaw-dropping tweet, in which West admitted that there may be an album or two in the history of recorded music better than “Waves.”

“Out of respect for Q-Tip, Puff, Hov, Lauren, Pharcyde, Mary, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, James, Pete Rock, Pac, Marvin … this new album is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest just one of,” West tweeted.

“So many musicians touch my life and made me who I am… I want to make something great to honor my idols,” the rapper added.

The admission came in stark contrast to a tweet he issued in late January, which declared, “So happy to be finished with the best album of all time.”

He later declared, “This is not album of the year. This is album of the life.”

No, that wasn’t an earthquake you felt; just the sound of millions of Kanye fans collapsing in shock over this latest development.

Someone pass the smelling salts, please..
