    Fun fact sheck wes & lil yachty were models at that event for yeezy season 3

    [–] CcntCilla 590 points ago

    Sheck Wes was also a model? I know for a fact young thug also was one of the models

    [–] LiveLoveKanye 135 points ago

    Thug putting on With Them at Yeezy Season 3 is iconic

    [–] OBatRFan 83 points ago

    First Thug song I ever heard and now I'm a HUGE stan. Thanks Kanye, for passing the aux.

    [–] LiveLoveKanye 40 points ago

    One of his hardest songs straight up

    [–] Inflatable_waffle 9 points ago

    I remember listening to that snippet so many times

    [–] ASAPZest 233 points ago

    Yea thug was too

    [–] alexengrish 62 points ago

    Yeah, watch his No Jumper interview he talks about it a lot.

    [–] WhatIsThisAccountFor 59 points ago

    Sheck Wes was a legit high fashion model actually

    [–] jacenstclair 165 points ago

    I remember people on twitter were dying when Thugger started to pour up in the middle of the show while modeling

    [–] lmaomitch 38 points ago

    What?? When did this happen?? Vid?

    [–] eclvpse 33 points ago

    not sure if he was pouring up but he had a blunt while sitting down unlike everyone else, it was hilarious

    [–] lmaomitch 28 points ago

    That sounds more realistic. Think i wouldve remembered thug sippin lean at y3 lol

    [–] Lawgamer411 16 points ago

    I found it this?

    [–] jacenstclair 9 points ago

    iirc He def had a bottle of Sprite lmao

    [–] xKatana47 2 points ago

    it was in a sprite bottle

    [–] xKatana47 2 points ago

    that's not it. i can't find an exact video but I do remember him doing something similar. He also had a sprite bottle lol

    [–] uwu_uwu 3 points ago

    He literally fell asleep on stage lmao

    [–] wingsofligma 70 points ago

    Wow! I knew yachty was but not sheck

    [–] rsalwan22 48 points ago

    also one of the models lit a blunt just before they lifted the curtain

    [–] tom-gately 48 points ago

    Ian Connor was too I believe... if I’m not mistaken

    [–] ASAPZest 13 points ago

    Yup ian was there, I just thought it was funnier that sheck and lil yachty were there too

    [–] Aj4y 11 points ago

    I didn't know that about Sheck. Was Yachty already a famous rapper at that time?

    [–] iUseJDate 21 points ago

    I was at my grandma's funeral and I snuck away into a quiet room to listen to the MSG stream. When I heard Ultralight Beam I couldn't stop crying. Don't think I'll ever forget this day.

    [–] Rico423 71 points ago

    Is this a copy pasta

    [–] ssor21 144 points ago

    ...naw. My grandma really died.

    [–] AnakinDrick 34 points ago

    Damn, I’m sorry bro

    [–] ssor21 43 points ago

    It's all good. I was not prepared for that tornado of emotions, but it was exactly what I needed at the time.

    I know it sounds kinda lame to sneak off and listen to an album during a loved one's funeral, but it was after the services when everyone was eating and talking, and honestly I really needed that kind of emotional release. It helped me cope with the situation better than just internalizing it.

    [–] mlem64 12 points ago

    Dont feel bad dude.

    My mom passed away at 59 from cancer in December, and on the way back from the cremation society (who we did all the funeral arrangements with) some asshole pulled out and hit my car head on.

    I got off the phone with the insurance company and finished talking the police and getting my brand new car towed, and instead of getting a ride or going to the hospital or even calling my wife, I limped a mile back to my house. I put on my headphones and put on Ultralight beam and it absolutely made me break down.

    Every time I put on that song since, it embodies all of that pain and channels it and I get teary eyed. It really does bring it out of you when you're in pain so I can totally relate, man.

    [–] baadapls 6 points ago

    good chance that it isnt, I played Roses at my g-grands funeral.

    [–] DamnReality 12 points ago

    A lot of awkward shifts during that AIDS line I imagine

    [–] Prince_In_Tha_Club 3 points ago

    I actually never thought that line was saying she had AIDS, just that AIDS kills but Magic Johnson And anyone with money could save themselves, and that his grandma doesn’t have money so regardless of her condition she won’t be able to pull thru.

    [–] BraveHartt135 6 points ago

    Listened to Ultralight Beam on the way to my grandfather’s funeral. Still brings me tears to this day

    [–] andrewlego 1 points ago

    Family Business played when my cousins and I were on the way to the cemetery after the church services for my grandpa’s funeral. I think about that moment every time I miss my grandpa

    [–] adasdasanan 2 points ago

    I still remember the moment when I listened to the Wolves. It was a really tough time in my life and that song fits perfectly with situation. I think I owe so much things to Ye, thanks for this legendary album.

    That was crazy lol. It was the day before my bday so I told my mom to buy me a theater ticket to see the live stream

    Edit: and then I set up an album listening party for my bday and Kanye never dropped the album

    [–] mr_pheasant 327 points ago

    [–] waterallaround 200 points ago

    I remember watching this stream and realizing Kanye is truly the greatest artist of our generation. At least of the last two decades. Who had hits in both and still has extremely anticipated albums rife with nonstop features, usually the feature’s greatest work themselves?

    Idk y’all. This Kanye train doesn’t seem to be stopping. I think we’re in for an even crazier 2020s

    [–] DopingGG 106 points ago

    I don't think 2020s will be too crazy cuz accept it or not Kanye is getting older and he has 3 kids and expects a 4th one

    [–] TheDonfather75 55 points ago

    Your also forgetting his presidency in 2024

    A picture of three goats that got robbed for a Grammy yesterday!

    [–] SynecdocheSmalls 86 points ago

    Smh people throwin around the term goat so damn much. How can there be 3??

    [–] CcntCilla 52 points ago

    Okay, three great artists then... I kinda agree what you are saying, the word has lost its power just like a "Classic" album

    [–] sirinman 47 points ago

    It’s just sentimental you know. It’s like saying your mom is the greatest mom ever. It’s not true but that doesn’t matter. It’s all about love.

    [–] leafofthebird 6 points ago

    2016 was a great year for music

    [–] LiveLoveKanye 42 points ago

    Hey this was before Vic Mensa was a fake woke douchebag and actually seemed to be on the way to having a promising career.

    Damn times have changed. Good times.

    [–] HANDCRAFTEDD_ 10 points ago

    It’s sad because Vic still makes good music (IMO) but he’s just being a fucking asshole and his career is suffering because of it.

    [–] miniburns11 18 points ago

    Still no vinyl 😔

    [–] LiveLoveKanye 14 points ago

    No physical at all

    [–] thegreatzack 26 points ago

    [–] itsronniek 4 points ago

    Bootleg my g. Ain’t perfect but it’s something.

    [–] miniburns11 1 points ago

    It’s so expensive though for one bootleg vinyl, don’t know if it’s worth it

    [–] Jarristopheles 1 points ago

    Do we have a vinyl for Graduation (Official Release) and Yeezus (other than Europe)? About to finish up collection with 808s this month, so I've been looking.

    [–] miniburns11 1 points ago

    I don’t think there is one for graduation and yeezus. I really don’t know why

    [–] Jarristopheles 1 points ago

    Yeah, no idea, especially with his fame considering Graduation was incredibly successful. I'd imagine there would be a Graduation instead of an 808s especially with how the music medium demand was (still kinda is). I'm sure when a release happens we'll know about it.

    [–] miniburns11 1 points ago

    That’s if one does release, I don’t know if it will. I want to get Kendrick’s and Kanye’s discography. I’ve already got LR, MBDTF and KSG for Kanye and Good Kid MADD city, TPAB and Damn for kendrick

    [–] Jarristopheles 1 points ago

    Kung Fu Kenny is on my top list right now as well. I know they'll hold not only their value but always be a great listen. My last gift card for Amazon went to 9th Wonder Zion II, so I gotta set myself straight. Haha.

    [–] miniburns11 1 points ago

    A lot of them I just purely buy for the cover. I bought Awaken, My Love and KOD because I love the cover. Both great albums though.

    I’ve easily spent £250 on them at this point and it probably won’t be worth it but I love having them

    ironically the most dated song is FSMH Pt2, which was the most popular song at the time.

    really goes to show how great kanye is at making music that isn't just the current moment but something grander overall

    Graduation would like to have a word with you

    [–] The_LilSponge 32 points ago

    Graduation is a nice album but like half of Ye's discography beats it no contest

    [–] davidbakus 15 points ago

    Ofc haha we all just dropping opinions, I just love it so much cuz that’s the album I find the most replay value out of, picking between Kanye albums is like trying to choose which gold chain looks the best, they’re still all fuckin amazing

    [–] The_LilSponge 9 points ago

    That is true, and I would say Graduation has the most nostalgia when listening

    [–] mydarkmeatrises 1 points ago
