Kanye West might just have revealed the release of not one, but two new albums, one solo album titled Yandhi and a collaboration with Chance the Rapper.
On Sunday, Chance the Rapper posted a picture on Instagram of a pink backdrop with the words ‘Good A** Job” in big white block letters. In 2003, Kanye West told MTV that “my third album is going to be called Graduation. And the fourth is Good-A** Job.” Although West’s third album was titled Graduation, his fourth album was called 808s & Heartbreaks. It was recorded after his mother’s death and the end of an engagement.
In May 2016, Chance the Rapper teased that he was working with West on a collaboration titled Good A** Job. During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, he said, “The main thing we want to connect on is this project called Good A** Job. That’s a thing we talked about a long time ago, and I think everything we’ve been working on together is a piece of it.”

Later in the year, Chance appeared on Power 106’s The Ted Cruz Show, where he said, “Good A** Job, that is something that’s just been a dream for me. I’m a Chicago kid, so I’m a super ‘Ye fan, and I used to like watch all the YouTube videos and him speaking, and I remember watching a video a long time ago where he was explaining, ‘You have your college dropout, then you go back after your late registration, and then you finally get your graduation, and then after you graduate you have to go and get a good a** job.’”
West recently revealed to Fox 32 that he is working with Chance on the project in Chicago. At Chance’s Open Mic Event in the city, West confirmed that the two are working together, and also told the crowd that he is moving back to the city.

After announcing his collaboration with Chance, West tweeted a picture of a Sony MD80 minidisk, which resembles the album cover for Yeezus. Fans immediately started speculating about Yeezus Part 2, which was strengthened when West revealed that he’s performing on SNL soon and might be revealing some big news.
West then posted a picture on Instagram, teasing that the album might be called Yandhi and would be released on 29th September.
Kanye’s last album, Ye, was released on June 1 of this year.
