Kanye West hits out at the Grammys and announces plans for a new album

Rapper also declares that the 'world needs a guy like me'

Kanye West has gone on a Twitter tirade slamming the Grammy Awards.

In a series of tweets he criticised the awards ceremony for “being way off” and “completely out of touch”.

He continued to diss the event before randomly announcing that he has a new album coming this summer.

The rapper then posted a series of bizarre outspoken tweets, with one declaring: “The world needs a guy like me. The world needs somebody to not be scared and tell his truth. You won’t always agree with me but I’m gon always be me. I’m woke!”

It comes just a day after he debuted a new song titled ‘Closest Thing To Einstein’ during a live appearance in Los Angeles, also taking time out to publicly deny ex-girlfriend Amber Rose’s recent sex claims about him.

West dated Rose from 2008 to 2010 but there has long been animosity between the pair, with West previously saying that he “had to take 30 showers” after dating her.

Following a Twitter dispute between West and the father of her child Wiz Khalifa, Rose tweeted allegations about West’s sexual preferences, writing: “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur asshole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch”.

West released his new album ‘The Life Of Pablo’ earlier this month. It’s the follow up to 2013’s ‘Yeezus’ and features guest spots from Rihanna, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar and more. 

It has been reported that the album has failed to chart in both the UK and US after Tidal, who are streaming the album exclusively, refused to disclose figures to officials.
