It looks like "Yandhi" is 100% official.
Kanye West is planning to drop a new album on the same night that he performs on Saturday Night Live. At first, news that Ye would be dropping a second solo album this year sounded like fake news. Aside from ye, West recorded a joint project with Kid Cudi entitled Kids See Ghost. Technically, another album would be West's third project in 2018, and that's not counting the albums he produced (Daytona, Nasir, K.T.S.E.). It appears that it's full steam ahead though for Yandhi, an album that places a Hindu twist on the Yeezus album aesthetic.
Gandhi is one of the most famous activists in the world, and his courage helped cement India and Pakistan's freedom from British rule. Taking on the title of Yandhi is no less controversial than calling yourself Yeezus, although the enormous Christian culture in America will avoid scolding Kanye too hard for this one. West took to his favorite form of social media on Saturday (September 22), and posted pictures of billboards in New York that promote his new album. The billboards are fairly simple, they feature one blue text message bubble that reads "YANDHI 9 29 18." Kanye's SNL performace will undoubtedly feature songs off the new project, and we can't wait.
