The internet has been all over today’s claims that Kanye West has had his laptop stolen in Paris.
The news was sparked by a tweet from G.O.O.D. Music’s Malik Yusef, which simply stated:
We have the PRIVATE INVESTIGATION FIRMS ON TOP OF @kanyewest STOLEN LAPTOP!!!!!

An apparent leak of ‘Awesome’, a track that West debuted a snippet of last year, suddenly made sense. Not so according to Def Jam: a rep for the label has stated that the laptop claims are “untrue”, and the leak is unrelated. This could, of course, be damage control. Who knows.
Kanye’s new album So Help Me God is out soon. Catch up on his latest antics – and as usual, there’s a lot of them – here.
