It's been a busy month from the Kanye West camp. A close associate claimed that work has already begun on the follow-up to his Grammy-nominated album Donda, and a couple of videos of studio sessions leaked. Pictures of Ye with L.A.-based rapper The Game have fueled speculation that a collaborative song is incoming, and even rap insider Wack100 said that Kanye was dropping something today. That may or may not happen, but on Friday, Kanye shared a new post on Instagram indicating that something with The Game is coming.
The (extremely graphic) image depicts a skinned monkey against a blood-red background, originally photographed by Nick Knight. The Game is tagged in the image, and the caption reads "MY LIFE WAS NEVER EAZY." See the post below.
This week, West was announced as a headliner for Coachella 2022 along with Billie Eilish and Harry Styles. Later this year he'll reportedly take his Sunday Service to Russia for a concert and a meeting with Vladimir Putin. The three-part Netflix documentary Jeen-Yus, filmed over twenty years throughout Kanye's career, will debut on February 10.
