Kanye West is heading to Africa in a few weeks to complete his new album, 'Yandhi'.

His wife Kim Kardashian is singing his praises ahead of the album's release, which she reveals will be in November. 

Kanye, who has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately, was expected to drop his ninth studio album on the day of his appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' last week.

The only thing his fans got during his appearance was a rant about Donald Trump, whom the 'Gold Digger' hitmaker supports. 

Some of his fans accused him of making shocking statements during and after his 'SNL' appearance to drum up hype for his new album.

But according to Mrs West, the offering will be dropping on Black Friday.

Shortly after Kim's tweet, Kanye told TMZ why he had to push his album's release date back. He says he will be heading to Africa to draw inspiration and energy from the earth on the continent. *crickets*

“We have concepts talking about body-shaming and women being looked down upon for how many people that they slept with. It’s just a full Ye album and those five albums I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation and now the alien Ye is fully back in mode… We’re going to Africa in two weeks to record. I felt this energy when I was in Chicago. I felt the roots. We have to go to what is known as Africa," he told TMZ's Harvey Levin in an interview. 

We wonder which part of Africa he will be visiting. South Africa has some good, uhm, earth, if we do say ourselves!
