Kanye said his new album had been pushed back so he could "go and grab the soil" in Africa

Kanye West was supposed to release his ninth album, Yandhi, on Saturday he has given a good explanation as he said it would –, and it all has to do with Africa.

Three days later, he’s appeared on Saturday Night Live and called for the abolition of the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution, which ended slavery – but the album has yet to materialise.

During an interview, Kanye West explained he “didn’t finish” the album in time; and would to go to Africa to complete it.

“I 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.
