A Kanye West fan predicted his new album title 'The Life of Pablo' and is waiting to be rewarded with a pair of Yeezy sneakers.
Dante Holley, 20, managed to work out the title from lyrics the single 'No More Parties in LA' and now he's patiently waiting to be rewarded with the footwear which Kanye promised anyone who could guess the name of his LP.
Revealing how he worked out the name, Dante told BBC's Newsbeat: "He was talking about how he felt like Pablo when he was working on his shoes, he felt like Pablo when he was on the news. I thought either he's talking about Pablo Escobar or Pablo Picasso. So I just thought 'The Life of Pablo'."
Recalling the moment the title was revealed, Dante - who is from New Jersey and a budding rapper-and-music producer with HW4L Records - said: "My phone started ringing. I guessed Kanye had announced the title and it was 'The Life of Pablo'. People kept on saying, 'You won, you won.' It was crazy. I never would have expected it."
The 'All Day' rapper wrote on Twitter earlier this week that he would give anyone who guessed his album title correctly a pair of Yeezys and a ticket to his Season 3 fashion show, which takes place in New York today (11.02.16).
The hip hop superstar tweeted: "@studio /final verses /new album title T.L.O.P ... That's the new album anybody who can figure out the title gets tickets to Season 3 and free Yeezys (sic)"
And although Dante is yet to hear from Kanye or his management, he has plans to run across the whole of America in the highly sought-after footwear to raise money for a worthy cause.
He said: "I'm going to run across the whole country in these Yeezys and do it for charity.
