Kanye’s New YANDHI Project Looks A Lot Like Yeezus 2

Early Monday morning (September 17), Kanye West’s Twitter contained two very puzzling items: the word “YANDHI” (written on a Post-It note under Adam Driver’s name, suggesting the two would pair up for an upcoming Saturday Night Live episode), and an image of a bare MiniDisc without any context.

It wasn’t unlike when his 2013 album Yeezus dropped, complete with its artwork of a naked CD with a red sticker on it. Naturally, this caused people to begin speculating that Yeezus 2 was on its way. And then, the details came in — Kanye will indeed perform on SNL on September 29 (with Driver hosting), and that same day, he’ll also launch a project called YANDHI.

Kanye has also changed his social media avatars to a white screen, meaning he could be prepping the beginning of a new era. If YANDHI is indeed a full album, it would be Kanye’s third this year, after Ye, which debuted in June at Kanye’s star-studded Wyoming ranch blowout, and his Kid Cudi collaboaration, Kids See Ghosts. Two weeks ago, Kanye also dropped the new song “I Love It” with Lil Pump, complete with a music video that’s already been parodied for its ridiculousness.

But the news doesn’t stop there! Kanye also took the stage with Chance the Rapper on Monday night to confirm that yes, they are indeed making a joint album together — as they’ve been teasing for weeks now — and it’s called Good Ass Job (a title Kanye’s been teasing for years).

This is a lot to take in, so now’s might be a good time to throw on some music (maybe “Good Ass Intro” or “Ultralight Beam”) and mull it over for a while. And, you know, consider turning on notifications for Kanye’s and Chance’s tweets.

Jean Touitou of A.P.C. on Art, Fashion, and the ‘Yeezus Tour’

The often outspoken founder of A.P.C. Jean Touitou recently spoke with Four Pins spanning several compelling topics during the opening of a most recent store in New York. Ranging from the current worst fashion trends to his thoughts on Yeezus, the whole interview can be seen here while select questions are seen below.

What do you not like about the art world? Any thoughts on the love affair between Fashion and Art, particularly the explosion that’s been Art Basel?

Well, you know, you got the answer. It’s so trivial to write: Art has become a commodity for ignorant investors, and that sucks. To start with, people should know that there’s a city called Basel. Then maybe people should be told the difference between pop culture and culture.

What did you think about the Yeezus Tour? Worthy of “The Kingdom of Dopeness”?

I went to the first one in Seattle. I could tell a great show could come out of it. At that point, it needed some editing. It’s the case with any creative process. I just love the fact that Vanessa Beecroft is so much part of it.
