Kanye West is back on Twitter — this time to assure fans and friends that he's not ignoring their calls, he just ditched his phone.

"For anyone whose [sic] tried to text or call me in the past 2 weeks I got rid of that phone so I could focus on these albums," the rapper tweeted Tuesday.

The 40-year-old followed that up with a 25-second video preview of some of his new music from one of his new albums, due out May 25.

In addition to saying goodbye to his phone, according to wife Kim Kardashian West, the father of three also missed the Met Gala to work on his music. 

West has been stirring up drama as of late saying that slavery "sounds like a choice," revealing that he was addicted to opioids following a liposuction procedure and declaring that his controversial views on Donald Trump are about "challenging the norm."

Kardashian West, meanwhile, has been standing up for her man, though she does blame him for one thing — her first gray hair. 

"He's doing really good," she said during a recent appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan. "He's in Wyoming recording. He has a couple albums coming out, so he's just focused on that. I will say he gave me my first gray hair this week and I am blaming that on him."

Kris Jenner has also taken it upon herself to defend her son-in-law.

"I think that anything he does — and I just think this is important to say is — he always does things with really good intentions,” Jenner said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
