THE RISE AND FALL OF XXXXXX
by RatedK (Not an admin).
I was online from the entire thing, since the minute he posted it, so I made a summary for anyone who is lost.
I'm not taking sides here, I'm just summarizing what happened.
CHAPTER 1: THE BEGINNING
On Sunday night (Feb 3, 2013)
A new user named XXXXXX created a thread called “Rich Black American 09|24|2013”
This is what the OP was:
"Creation of a nation that will someday be a condemnation,
say no to just simple ideas of human fascination,
I just wanna put this whole damn nation in ****ing damnation."
The thread went nowhere and was locked after a few responses.
The album cover by the way is a painting by Da Vinci, which people later discovered.
CHAPTER 2: CRYPTIC POSTS
In the Sixth Studio Album Thread on Page 398, things get interesting.
Out of nowhere, XXXXXX posts these:
I do not live in this dimension, I just work for DONDA.
The rest of page 398 = confusion. At the top of page 399, I posted the 92413KWPT... code and tried to solve it.
This is what we have:
Cyhi The Prynce
Teyana Taylor & Common OR Tyler The Creator
Lana Del Rey
Toro Y Moi
After I asked him if BKR meant Big KRIT and Rihanna, he responded "Beyonce Knowles and Rihanna", confirming that these were artists.
User PUFFYCOMBS. asked, "why haven't you dropped any videos/songs/nothing from o.p. yet"
XXXXXX immediately responded with "I will try to drop one song by Friday."
Note that there were already rumors that Travi$ was dropping a song on Friday.
Anyways, XXXXXX was not logged on for a while after that.
CHAPTER 3: ACCOUNT DETAILS
What's interesting about XXXXXX is these two things:
-the XXXXXX account's IP does not match another KTT account's IP.
-the XXXXXX account's IP was in France, where Kanye's team supposedly is.
A rumor floated around that the IP was in the middle east, but this was a joke.
At this point in the thread, Complex posted about it : http://www.complex.com/music/2013/02/kanye-wests-new-album-is-called-rich-black-american
CHAPTER 4: SOLVING RIDDLES
Many people speculated several things, such as what "XXXXXX" stood for.
Many guessed "Kanye W" "Pusha T" and mainly "Travi$" because he is rumored to drop a song on Friday.
There were also a number of joke guesses among those. In fact usually those were joke guesses.
Many also guessed what "26 1 172" meant.
I posted this:
XXXXXX responded, out of nowhere:
"Almost got it."
XXXXXX quoted a user named STERLING that said "Popular will be released because it was before a beat but now an actual finalized song."
XXXXXX also quoted these posts, implying they were true:
plus a film disc
When Cole asked what the first single would be like, XXXXXX responded:

This is binary, and when translated, it reads:
"Eyes remindin' me of crystals Damn I can't believe I ****ed so many Kristals"
XXXXXX made these two posts:
I'm done for now. I'll be back.
He has not since logged on.
CHAPTER 5: EXPOSED!
In this very thread, an admin posted:
XXXXXX broke character and posted in a thread called "Pros and Cons of Meth" and then quickly deleted his post.
XXXXXX quickly deleted the post but an admin found it. He also said that XXXXXX was using a proxy.
A KTT admin speculated that the user "MC" was responsible for the trolling.
CHAPTER 6: FINALE
Our friend XXXXXX returned to the sixth studio album thread to post this:
follow me on twitter @mvttclosson
according to XXL magazine:Feel free to tweet him your thoughts.
A KTT admin confirmed that MC was behind XXXXXX. Saying this:
I checked user agent strings in the database and found about 20 sessions with a matching string. About half of the users were recently active. Then I just looked through posts and his posts matched the writing style of one of them: MC. I was pretty sure it was him. There was more involved but that's interweb detective secrets
The truth was revealed.
AND THAT, KIDS, IS HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.
