After generating buzz over Kanye West revealed that the YEEZUS follow-up would release on Saturday, September 29. Although Ye did perform at Saturday Night Live, presumably to promote the new album, the record never released.

The rapper has stayed mum on any forthcoming news regarding Yandhi, instead delivering a pair of performances with Lil Pump and Teyana Taylor. After knocking out “I Love It” and “We Got Love,” West delivered a show-closing monologue, while wearing his ever-controversial Make America Great Again cap. The speech, unsurprisingly, proved to be unapologetically provocative, with audience members reacting to certain points with boos and hesitant applause.

Check out West’s speech in full below, along with some of the best social media reactions to the lack of Yandhi news.

Elsewhere, West and his son, Saint, threw out the first pitch at a Chicago White Sox game.
