Kanye West has been keeping fans waiting on Yandhiafter his messy 2018. The G.O.O.D. Music founder's long-awaited project might have some material that'll edge his way back into the public's good graces, according to engineer Kevin Celik.

Celik shared a few details about Yandhi during an interview with The Lunch Table. He reveals around the 42:30 mark that if the project hadn’t been pushed back, he wouldn’t have gotten the chance to work on the project at all.

Celik ended up engineering three songs that he said will “shake the game up this year,” and says all three are confirmed to be on Yandhi.

He went on to explain that the project is inspired by “women empowerment,” describing it as, “go get your own bag type shit. It’s dope.”

He also revealed Yandhi will include a song titled “New Body,” featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla Sign. It’s unclear whether Celik engineered the song, but he did say that the “record for sure is Kim K-inspired.”

Recently, Ye has gotten himself into some legal hot water. This week, Kids See Ghosts was hit with a lawsuit for an unauthorized sample. West is also suing his publisher EMI for refusing to let him retire.
