The "Homecoming" rapper told the crowd at Chance the Rapper’s Open Mike event at the Harold Washington Library Center in Chicago, Illinois, on Monday that he was returning to his beloved hometown.
“I’ve got to let you all know that I’m moving back to Chicago and I’m never leaving again," West, 41, announced in a video posted by a fan on Twitter, as the crowd got very excited and started chanting his name. "Second thing is, I want to tell you about the ideas I'm working on firsthand that I've tweeted and Instagrammed about."
No word on when the LP will be released, but later that day, West posted a photo of a CD with a text message that read "Yandhi 9 29 18."
Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian West, however, has yet to address her husband's comments about moving back to the Windy City. A source told TMZ that the rapper has already found a new house in Chicago, but will keep his current home in Calabasas, California, where his family resides.
At the end of this month, the "Fade" hip-hop artist will be the musical guest for Saturday Night Live's season 44 premiere.
