.jemaswad takes readers through a beautiful, dark, twisted history of Kanye West’s unreleased albums.

Say and think what you will about Kanye West — about his ego and politics and mental health and indefensible public statements and all the rest of it — but he actually is a musical genius, at least…

, do. So if you want a deep dive, they’ve put in the work — and of course, you can find the albums on YouTube (often in multiple different versions) and reach your own conclusions, although it’s hard to know which of these “albums” were assembled by the artist or an enterprising fan.

With that in mind, we’re skipping the purported Drake collaborative album “Wolves” and “Yeezus 2” as it’s not clear they ever existed as albums; ditto the proposed 2016 G.O.O.D. Music compilation “Cruel Winter.” And “Swish” and “Waves” are apparently early versions of “Life of Pablo” with slightly different tracklists and mixes.

And as for the rumored Jay-Z collaboration “Watch the Throne 2” or, as,” “Return of the Throne” — time will tell.“The College Dropout” alternate versions (2003-2004)Multiple versions of West’s classic debut album exist and they’re all good, but there’s little argument that the final version is the best. After it leaked (a constant occurrence in the waning years of the CD age), West cut several songs, including tracks with Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Consequence and early takes of later hits “Hey Mama” and “Gold Digger” — and it’s a testament to this album’s greatness that those songs didn’t make the final cut. headtopics.com

!“Good Ass Job” (2008, 2010, 2018)This album — actually, possibly two albums — has such a long and convoluted history that it got afull chronology on DJ Booth. Back in 2003, West laid out the thematic plan and titles for his first four albums: “College Dropout” followed by “Late Registration” followed by “Graduation” and then “Good Ass Job.” But after the shattering 2007 death of his mother, he channeled his grief into “808s and Heartbreak,” which is extremely different in tone from his earlier albums. However, various reports after “808s” (possibly using old information) said that West’s next album indeed would be called “Good Ass Job,” although it ended up being the classic “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”

West explained the change toMTV Newsin 2010. “I didn’t want to do the ‘Good Ass Job’ thing and have to stick to the skits [of the previous albums] and everything that went with that,” he said. “’My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ and my album cover are just … those things are just awesome. It’s really proper, decadent, soulful, lavishness, and it’s exactly what I wanna say.”

So that was that… until it wasn’t. Eight years later, during a surprise appearance at a Chance the Rapper event in Chicago, West announced that the two were collaborating on an album called “Good Ass Job.” Not surprisingly that’s the last that was heard of it …

“So Help Me God” (2014-15)At least three versions exist online of “So Help Me God,” which was apparently intended to be the follow-up to “Yeezus,” so who knows which is what. Several of its songs were released either by West (like “All Day”) or given to others as collaborations, like the Rihanna-Paul McCartney team-up “FourFiveSeconds”) and Travis Scott’s take on “Piss on Your Grave.” headtopics.com

“TurboGrafx 16” (2016)Announced after West finally let go of “Life of Pablo,” this one is widely considered West’s take on trap., including tag-teams with Young Thug, Migos and other Atlantans.“Love Everyone” (2018)This seems to be the album that West played for the TMZ staff during his infamous “Slavery is a choice” interview. One purported version features a ton of guests (Bon Iver, the Weeknd, Travis Scott, the-Dream, Ant Clemons) and has the feel of a completed album.
