Yandhi.jpg

Yandhi is Kanye West's scrapped ninth album that had an original release date of September 29, 2018. Tracklists vary from fan edits to 6 separate tracklists. Collaborators for this scrapped album include Ty Dolla $ign, Ant Clemons, Nicki Minaj, XXXTENTACION, YNW Melly, 6ix9ine and more.

The album was never released, but eventually morphed into Jesus Is King which released in October 2019. Three tracks from Yandhi appeared on JIK and one on Donda.

Yandhi is a portmanteau of Ye and Mahatma Gandhi, similar to Yeezus. The album's artwork also alludes to the minimalist design of the Yeezus album cover, this time being of a Sony MiniDisc rather than a CD.[1]

History[]

"We Got Love" was originally considered for Teyana Taylor's K.T.S.E., but it did not appear on that album. It was later added to Yandhi (appearing on the SNL tracklist), but it was finally released as part of Teyana Taylor's next album in 2020.

Later 2018, Ye released "XTCY" and "I Love It," the latter of which featured Lil Pump. He also announced Watch The Throne 2 would come soon, as well as Good Ass Job with Chance the Rapper.

On September 27, 2018, Kanye posted a tweet which announced Yandhi would come out two days later on September 29, coinciding with him being a musical guest for SNL. "Hurricane" was played in the announcement video.[2] The album did not come out then, only to have Kim Kardashian announce that it would come out on November 23 shortly afterward.[3] Ye eventually went to Uganda and worked on the album there, only to return in November and announce that the album was delayed indefinitely.

Jesus Is King[]

On January 6, 2019, West debuted the Sunday Service Choir and continued to rehearse with the group every Sunday. In October of the same year, he released Jesus Is King, which contained three tracks from Yandhi ("Chakras", "The Storm" and "Law of Attraction") that were reworked into the tracks "Selah", "Everything We Need", and "Use This Gospel," respectively.

Donda[]

"Hurricane" appeared in the three public listening parties in Atlanta and Chicago, this time featuring The Weeknd and Lil Baby, with only its melody remaining consistent from the Yandhi version. "Moon" is perceived to some as its outro track, similar to "Frank's Track" to "Wolves" from The Life of Pablo, thanks to it having debuted right after "Hurricane" in the first Atlanta show.

Other[]

Unlike some of his other tweets, the Yandhi announcement tweet with "Hurricane" playing remains on the site as of December 12th, 2021.[4]

WIP[]

[WIP below]

The album does not come out on the 29th, after that, Kanye tweets that the album is releasing after the SNL episode because that was the same time Lil Wayne was releasing his album "The Carter V" and as Kanye put it, "the universe needs Ye and Wayne music at the same time", at the SNL performance you would expect Yandhi songs, right? Kinda, that night he performed his collab song with Lil Pump "I Love It", "We Got Love" with Teyana Taylor, that's the Yandhi track! Not really since it's Teyana's song now, and the last song performed, "Ghost Town" with 070 Shake & Kid Cudi! As Ghost Town finishes up, we have not heard anything about Yandhi, that's when Kanye grabs the mic and starts talking about politics, this is about a month since the Trump endorsement so of course, he's wearing the MAGA hat. On October 1st, 2018, Kim K. goes to twitter to say Yandhi is releasing on black friday that year. Most of the Yandhi sessions were in Chicago, so when Kanye needed inspiration, he reloacted to Uganda on October 2nd, 2018. After putting the final touches on the album, he goes to California to perform a KIDS SEE GHOSTS concert with Kid Cudi at Camp Flog Gnaw 2018. After that performance Kanye went to twitter to say he realized the album wasn't finished and said he would release the date when he felt like it was near completion, So Kanye relocates again, this time to Miami, this is the only period of the Yandhi sessions we got no information about the album itself. On Janurary 2019, Kanye starts the Sunday Service events. After a lot of Sunday Services, we get a new tweet from Kim K., it was the first tracklist of JESUS IS KING with a release date of September 27th. Huh, maybe it's a different project Kanyes working on- nope, it's the album that's replacing Yandhi, and what made Kanye fans know this, was on September 19th, when Kanye told the media there will be no more profanity on any of his albums. Fans still had hope that it was just another album and not ALL of his albums would no longer contain profanity, but then JESUS IS KING released, and Yandhi believers heard a heartbreaking song for them that put Yandhi dead in the waters, Selah, was originally Chakras from the Yandhi leaks. Everything We Need is just The Storm from the leaks, and Use This Gospel is just Law of Attraction from the leaks. Kanye has never talked about Yandhi after this album ever again.
