Kanye West’s elaborate listening party / album launch for his new record ye may have been the talk of the music world, but it was far from a joy for those charged with handling the event. Diamond Cross Ranch, the reclusive refuge where West holed up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for the duration of the album’s creation and launch, have now instated a policy of “no more rappers” moving forward.
The ranch’s owner, Jane Golliher, spoke to TheBlast about her less than elated afterthoughts of managing Kanye’s party. She says it was the “most confusing” event they have ever handled, and that Kanye was prone to changing his mind about details “every 30 minutes”. Noise was also an issue, as local ordinances dictated quiet hours from 10pm onward, though in typical Kanye-time, the party didn’t start until 9:30pm.
Golliher and her team reportedly have no hard feelings against West and his team specifically, but in the future, they will only be holding events for “good music” of the non-rap variety.
