We first heard the tale of Kanye West’s beloved and mysterious laptop in 2008 with a tweet:
“I’m typing so fucking hard I might break my fucking Mac book Air!!!!!!!!”
This was right around the time he got booed off stage at Bonnaroo in New York. Fast forward to march of 2015 when G.O.O.D. music artist Malik Yusef tweets out that Kanye’s laptop had been stolen in Paris:
“We have the PRIVATE INVESTIGATION FIRMS ON TOP OF @kanyewest STOLEN LAPTOP!!!!!“
he says. Apparently this was the source of the previously leaked song “Awesome” which we all know Shy Glizzy wiped out of possibility. Later on that same day Dej Jam tweeted out that the laptop had been found and was “never lost.” This is a bit confusing don’t you think? Kanye was most likely breaking a sweat at this point being he was “f**king bitches” on the device. Well in 2o16 Kanye confirms on “Real Friends” that Def Jam was wrong as ever. He refers to his cousin who stole the computer forcing Kanye to pay a whopping $250,000 to get it back! A week later we get an even further insight into the Macbook Air saga with Kanye mentioning that he loves all of his cousins, including the one who stole it. He still describes his cousin in not the most positive of words… Check out @kanyelaptop on twitter to keep up with the machine and everything about it. Not to mention A LOT of pictures of Kanye holding a laptop. What’s next for Kanye? WHO IS HIS COUSIN? We’ll be keeping an ear out for him on Waves this February.
