Kanye West once tweeted out that he’d ‘fix the Wolves’ and ever since then, Karl Anthony Towns and company have gotten better by a tiny margin.
If there’s one thing Kanye West is known for outside of his music, it’s his online presence. The ‘Stronger’ rapper has made a name for himself on the social media platform known as Twitter with tweets that are now more iconic than some of his own songs. Tweets like, “I need a room full of mirrors so I can be surrounded by winners,” are what make West, West.
After his public separation from reality TV star, Kim Kardashian, he immediately started to hint towards releasing a new album. Showing up to events in masks while also being spotted in the studio led fans to believe he’s about to release an absolute classic. These fans were right as ‘Donda’ is set to come out any time soon.
Kevin Durant reportedly started dancing at the album listening party prior to flying out to Tokyo for the Olympics. With Donda on the way, it’ll be fun to look back at one of Kanye West’s most iconic tweets from the past 5 years.
Kanye West, according to fans, helped the Timberwolves improve their record with a single tweet.
‘The Life of Pablo’ is one of the greatest albums of the 2010s and during the time of its release and a few days after it, Kanye West seemed unhappy about something. So, he took to Twitter to say, ‘Imma fix Wolves.’ NBA fans interpreted this as him taking it upon himself to fix the Minnesota Timberwolves.
