Kanye offers a full explanation as to why he postponed his Yandhi album release.
The ‘Yandhi’ album was supposed to drop Saturday, September 29th after his SNL appearance but to surprise, Kanye delivered an epic Donald Trump rant and not new music.
Kanye dropped by TMZ yesterday, Monday October 1st, to talk about his upcoming album. Ye explained that he’s not done recording his songs and he is heading to Africa soon to complete the album. According to TMZ, Kanye’s explanation for recording in Africa is, “he wants to draw inspiration and energy from the Earth there.”
The “I Love It” rapper explained the delay of the Yandhi album saying, “We have concepts talking about body-shaming … It’s just a full Ye album and those five albums I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation and now the alien Ye is fully back in mode… We’re going to Africa in two weeks to record. I felt this energy when I was in Chicago. I felt the roots. We have to go to what is known as Africa.”
West and Teyana Taylor also shot their “We Got Love” music video at the TMZ offices in Los Angeles, where they took over the back grounds with dozens of dancers dressed in Yeezy apparel from head to toe. Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian took to her twitter to officially announce the re-release date for Yandhi, which will now debut on Black Friday, November 23.
