The release date for http://uristocrat.com/2009/08/dr-romanelli-for-fall-out-boy-jackets/‘s next album offering — his third full-length of 2018 — is imminent. Ahead of the release, we’ve pulled up everything we know about free bankruptcy online, so you can be fully prepped to get involved in the album-hype when it drops.
The project’s name is a portmanteau of “Ye” and “Gandhi,” (the same as YEEZUS was of “Ye” and “Jesus”) and arrives a couple of months after his collaborative album with Kid Cudi bankruptcy attorny, and the eponymous http://uristocrat.com/2010/07/casio-gshock-surfrider-foundation-summer-2010-watch/.
News of YANDHI began to flutter into the ‘Yemosphere earlier this month, when the music mogul dropped a series of cryptic tweets that hinted towards another album release. Now those tweets have been backed with album artwork, release dates, potential track samples, and massive billboard takeovers.
For all those details and more, keep scrolling for a rundown of everything we know so far about Kanye West’s YANDHI.
West is dominating billboards this week, taking over with huge images of an iMessage that reads “YANDHI 9 29 18” — September 29, 2018. Meaning the release date for YANDHI could be just days away.
If the 3D holographic video West shared to Instagram over the weekend is anything to go by, then YANDHI‘s album artwork will feature a MiniDisc with purple tape. The design, fans will recognize, its not at all dissimilar to that of his 2013 YEEZUS album, which depicted a CD with red tape.
The track West dropped back in August, “XTCY,” could potentially feature on YANDHI, as it was his first release post-ye. Per Complex‘s observations, the song is likely a reworking of “Extacy,” a rough draft that the artist shared back in May.
Earlier this month, West used his Instagram Stories to hint at another track that could potentially feature on the album. We have no info about the name of this one, but you can wrap your ears around it here.
Potential Feature / Collaborators:
The list of potential collaborators is a long one given the endless G.O.O.D Music affiliates. However, G.O.O.D guys aside, it could be that Chance the Rapper will appear on YANDHI, given that the pair are already working on an album together called Good Ass Job.

Lil Pump is another new Ye collaborator who could crop up, after they linked up to release “I Love It” earlier this month.
As is 6inx9ine, who was spotted in the studio working on tracks with West.

And perhaps Young Thug, too, after he paid tribute to Ye in his single titled “Kanye West” on the 2016 mixtape JEFFERY, and issued the below threat a few days ago.

On the day of YANDHI‘s release, September 29, West is set to appear on the highly-anticipated Saturday Night Live season 44 kick-off. While Adam Driver will host, you can definitely expect this episode to be all aboard the YANDHI hype train.
