Kanye says he plans to go "to Africa in two weeks to record."
After dropping two albums in 2018, Kanye could be ready to take those new songs, and the rest of his catalog, on the road next year. Timberlake and Gambino will be done with their respective tours well before Coachella, supporting HDD’s report.
