Kanye West's 'The Life Of Pablo' Stirs Bit Torrent Fans

KANYE WEST's "The Life Of Pablo" is single-handedly jump-starting Internet piracy. Credit the album's uneven release for that -- it's apparently only available for streaming on TIDAL, after WEST's own website, which was offering downloads for $20, broke down.
According to TORRENFREAK, the album has been downloaded illegally more than 500,000 times, even as TIDAL has climbed to #1 at the APP STORE, undoubtedly due to demand for the album.
Disgraced pharmaceutical/hedge fund provocateur MARTIN SHKRELI has upped his offer to KANYE from $10 million to $15 million for the album after shelling out $2 million for WU TANG CLAN's "Once Upon A Time In Shaolin" in an auction for a single copy.
KANYE has also taken to TWITTER (where else?) to announce he's $53 million in debt, and asked FACEBOOK's MARK ZUCKERBERG to help bail him out. Just another day in the life for YEEZY.
