Kanye West reveals he is collaborating with Nicki Minaj on a song about bodyshaming for his new album Yandhi.
“Nicki just rapped on a song where we talk about dealing with bodyshaming. This concept is a ‘Ye concept,” the “Jesus Walks” rapper said. “I love taking stigmas and flipping negative energy to positive energy. People get bodyshamed for using plastic surgery.”
West warned the subject matter maybe controversial. He teases that “the concept of the song is basically…” before someone in the distance seemingly motions for him to stop talking.
Meanwhile, eight years ago this week, West and Minaj collaborated on “Monster” – her verse on the song really launched her career.
The rapper and fashion designer also revealed Ty Dolla $ign will lend his talents to the album.
Yandhi was scheduled to drop on Sept. 29, but the date came and passed with no release and no explanation. His wife, Kim Kardashian later revealed the project was being pushed back to Nov. 23.
