Kanye West has deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
The rapper's social media accounts disappeared following a few weeks where the rapper couldn't seem to stop tripping himself up on the platform. After sending out tweets promising a new album that never materialized and suggesting that the 13th Amendment should be abolished, the rapper appears to be running away from the digital hornets' nests he couldn't help but kick.
Of course, there's still a supposed deadline for Yandhi out there in cyberspace. Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian-West was the one who shared the new release date for Yandhi. It's dropping (allegedly) on November 23.
Kanye told TMZ that he's heading to Africa in the meanwhile to record.
"So this is the type of energy that we're putting into the album, so we're going to Africa in two weeks to record," he said. "I felt this energy when I was in Chicago, I felt the roots. But we have to go to what is known as Africa. I need to go, I need to find out what it’s really called. Just grab the soil and be and cook food, five meals a day so the metabolism stays up, have my kids in the studio, have the mic out in the open so you can hear nature while we’re recording.”
The deletion of Kanye's Instagram and social means that the drubbing he took for his stance on the 13th Amendment is no more. Chris Evans called him out for his take, calling it "maddening" and Lana Del Rey went on a lengthy tirade against Kanye's continuing support of President Donald Trump.
"If you think it's alright to support someone who believes it's OK to grab a woman by the pussy just because he's famous - then you need an intervention as much as he does," she wrote in a comment on a since-deleted post.
Of course, the sudden move could have something to do with a potential lawsuit alleging that Kanye's tweets about The Life of Pablo never being available outside Tidal amounted to fraud. Or it could just be Kanye being Kanye. He's done this before, after all.
