Yesterday (Monday, September 17) was a big day for Kanye West. News broke that he’s set to appear on the season 44 premiere of Saturday Night Live and also appeared to be teasing a follow up to Yeezus. Now, many are speculating West is going to drop a new album called YANDHI on September 29, the same day he’s set to appear on SNL, due to an iMessage conversation screenshot that he posted to Twitter, seen below.
Due to the fact that the art associated with YANDHI resembles that of Kanye West’s 2013 album Yeezus, with an image of a mini disc in place of a CD, many are assuming that West has a new music project in the works. In case you didn’t clock it, “Yandhi” is a portmanteau of “Ye” and “Gahndhi” just as “Yeezus” was a portmanteau of “Ye” and “Jesus.”
If YAHNDHI is indeed a new album, this will be West’s third full-length of the year, following his solo album ye and his KIDS SEE GHOSTS joint project with Kid Cudi.
Stay tuned for more details on Kanye West’s YANDHI.
