Kanye West, unquestionably one of the most important musicians of our generation and a proponent of the notion that there is no such thing as bad publicity, released his 10th studio album, “Donda,” following multiple extravagant and dramatic listening parties.

Fresh off the release of his most anticipated and third studio album “Astroworld,” Travis Scott’s “Wish You Were Here” tour brought together his longtime fans and newcomers for one night of ultimate raging on Nov. 27 at Madison Square Garden.
