    This is not that hard to grasp. It’s the same thing with Ye. He scrapped most of it because he felt he was in a new place. So he took time to re-record to better match his “energy”. Yandhi felt incomplete, so he’s going somewhere in hopes the surroundings of Africa will bring out something fresh

    Class: Yes, sir.

    * 2 months later *

    Mr. Shakur: Okay class, I will need to collect all of your projects and take a good listen to it.
    Class: * passes everything to the center aisle *
    Mr. Shakur: Hmmm.. Mr. West, you didn't pass your project up front. You're gonna have to pass it. Now.
    Kanye West: * fidgets *
    Mr. Shakur: Uhmmm.. Mr. West, did you even do what I told the whole class what to do?!? I know Mr. Fetty Wap didn't pass his because he's not present in this class right now.

  • The Kobe Show
    The Kobe Show 6 days ago

    This is meant to be. He was meant to be awakened to help wake up the others. He just doesn't understand yet that he is only a half GOD , as he is not in control of the matrix, he is just a vessel of the real GOD. This is a result of dialmethatryptamine aka DMT it has activated his chakras & reconnected him with Spirit. This is all unfolding as it's meant, he is using any platform he can to help the collective. It is an honorable thing he is doing, the people who think he lost it are the ones who refuse to wake up. People like 'Ye don't always say the right thing, but when they do, THEY ARE RIGHT & they are trying to help humanity. Thanks Yandhi we appreciate you
