With Kanye West‘s Yandhi album dropping this Saturday (Sept. 29), the hip-hop vet was in New York City on a promo run and stopped by The FADER’s offices to play some songs from the forthcoming LP.

The album will be out around the time of his Saturday Night Live! performance, which will be hosted by actor Adam Driver. Kanye did a similar album drop his for 2016’s The Life Of Pablo, which hit streaming sites after Kanye’s last SNL performance. Watch his new SNL promo above.

According to FADER, Kanye came in wearing a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt and a MAGA hat, which both were redesigned by ‘Ye himself: “I changed the brim, I mean I changed the shape right here and I put positive energy into the hat.”

He revealed that both 6ix9ine and the late XXXTentacion are featured on the album plus he said he would have preferred Louis C.K. as the host of SNL instead of Adam Driver. The disturbing common thread about the three individuals that were discussed is their troubling aquastions and charges in recent years (6ix9ine plead guilty to use of a child in a sexual performance, XXXTentacion was accused of kidnapping and beating his pregnant girlfriend and Louis C.K. admitted to multiple instances of masturbating in front of women against their will).

Other notes that were taken from the meeting are that Kanye described Donald Trump and InfoWars’ Alex Jones as “matrix-breakers,” Yeezy wants to build a flying car factory in Chicago with Tesla alums and many more questionable statements.

Yandhi was originally supposed to drop at midnight this Friday (September 26) but Kanye pushed the album release date back to acknowledged Lil Wayne’s long-awaited Tha Carter V. “We know it will come in number 2 to my brother Lil Wayne and that’s lovely,” Kanye wrote on Twitter. “The universe needs Ye and Wayne music at the same time.”

This will be Kanye’s third project of the year. He released Ye and his Kid Cudi-collaborative album, Kids See Ghosts, in June.
