[UPDATE, 11.33am]: Okay, so despite Kanye’s dad-ish tweets of late, he’s still the perfect shit-stirrer, with Rolling Stone confirming they didn’t decide to time their cover with Ye’s latest release.
While we love Kanye, and have many mustard-related questions for him, this is not an actual cover of Rolling Stone https://t.co/2c3ZWpaorN

[ORIGINAL]: Man of the moment, Kanye West, has landed the upcoming cover of Rolling Stone—just in time for the release of his new album WAVES (or whatever it will end up being called on February 11). Tweeting the cover image today, Kanye also credits fellow rapper and all-round creative Tyler, the Creator as the photographer. It’s to be expected that Tyler also contributes images to the accompanying editorial, which will feature in the magazine’s February 25 issue.
Tyler has previously showcased his prowess behind the lens, with a recent GOLF series which included A$AP Rocky and his manager Clancy, along with captions explaining what makes them smile. Ye’s cover photo seems to be in much the same style and captures the outspoken rapper in his most illusive state—smiling—so hopefully the feature will include more unexpected perspectives of Mr West.
If you’re keen to find out if Kanye actually does like mustard, then keep an eye out for the full editorial dropping soon.
