Kanye West's The Life of Pablo is streaming on Pornhub

NSFW, obviously

Here's a tip if you want to listen to Kanye's The Life of Pablo but your free trial on Tidal has expired: Go to Pornhub. The album is streaming there (click with caution, unless you're in a relaxed environment). The stream has apparently been up for around five days already, but it's gained momentum since a Redditor discovered it last night.

It's hard to say how long it will be before the stream is taken down, but Pornhub actually makes sense as a host for illegal album streams. Many of the videos are owned by MindGeek, a company that operates several popular porn sites, but much of it is amateur content, uploaded by entrepreneurial sex-havers (and now, music-listeners). And since Pornhub doesn't have a simple takedown tool like YouTube's Content ID, there's no speedy recourse for Kanye's label UMG to pull the stream. If you feel bad about doing an illegal thing on the internet, will it help you to know that Kanye torrents stuff too?

Update, 11:49AM ET: The stream has been pulled.
