The announcement came only a couple of days after his controversial performance on SNL season 44 premiere episode where the rapper had made a lengthy impromptu rant stating his support to Trump. After his message, he was booed by the audience. Some cast members were even seen shaking their heads in protest.
Kanye West Drawn To Africa
The multi-awarded rapper told TMZ's Harvey Levin that was not able to finish the record and explained that it will be recorded in Africa. West stated that while he was in Chicago, he felt an energy pushing him to record the album in the said place. According to him, he needed to go to Africa to know what called him.
"I'm incorporating sounds you've never heard before and pushing concepts that people don't talk about. We have concepts about body shaming, and women being looked down upon because of how many people they've slept with," said the rapper, adding the studio album is immensely good.
The musician also stated that his upcoming album will be different from the previous ones that he helped to produce.
"Now the alien Ye is fully back in mode, off medication, working out, breathing as much fresh air as possible, thinking, doing, being his self," he stated.
Donald Trump And Colin Kaepernick Meeting
Furthermore, the rapper mentioned that he contacted Colin Kaepernick to set up a meeting between the athlete and the President at the White House. Wearing his statement "Make America Great Again" hat, West revealed his plans during the sit-down interview with TMZ Live host Harvey Levin.
Notably, West does not keep his support for the president a secret. Trump has also criticized the NFL athlete's move to kneel during the national anthem. Kaepernick made the bold move to protest police brutality against people of color. However, the Trump insists that his action is disrespectful to veterans and the flag.
