Rapper Kanye West has said a lot of stupid stuff about Tim Cook, iTunes, and Apple in general, but he was still gifted an Apple Watch Edition with a gold link bracelet that only celebrities have. Now rumor has it that he may be releasing an album in connection with Apple’s upcoming on-demand streaming music service launch that we’ve extensively covered.

Hits Daily Double:

ON THE ROCS: Kanye West is making changes, distancing himself from Tidal, firing Roc Nation and managing himself, with an unofficial assist from the Jenner-Kardashian clan. As for Kanye’s long-delayed album, there’s some chatter that the release will be connected to Apple Music’s launch.

Artist exclusives are expected to be a part of the Apple Music service, and artist activity is coming to the app that manages the experience. While Kanye has a nasty history with Apple, his Apple Watch Edition status shows that Apple’s willing to use his fame when it’s useful for them. Stay tuned.
