Web personality Justin Laboy tweeted that West had played the upcoming album for him, NBA superstar Kevin Durant, and more.

“Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas,” said Laboy, via the social media platform. “The production is light-years ahead of its time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back.”
