The project was originally slated for a September 29, 2018 release, but Ye delayed it in order to head to Africa for recording.

“I need to go, I need to find out what it’s really called,” he told TMZ, “Just grab the soil and be and cook food, five meals a day so the metabolism stays up, have my kids in the studio, and have the mic in the open so you can hear nature while we’re recording.”

In October, rapper Quavo confirmed his his group Migos are set to feature on the record.

“I did a record for [Kanye], we did a record for ‘Yandhi’,” he told Power 106’s The Cruz Show, “He called us.”
