Kanye West: I’m Going To Africa
Kanye West was supposed to release his ninth album, Yandhi, on Saturday.
Three days later – having appeared on Saturday Night Live where he called for the abolition of the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution, which ended slavery – his album has yet to materialise.
Speaking to celebrity news site TMZ, the star explained he “didn’t finish” the album in time and would to go to Africa to complete it.
“I just need to go and grab the soil… and have the mic in the open, so you can hear nature while we’re recording.
“I felt this energy when I was in Chicago. I felt the roots. We have to go to what is known as Africa.”
West added that the album had been pushed back to Black Friday, 23 November, after a member of his management team suggested he needed more time.
