Kanye West has a lot of things cooking up. Catch up with everything coming down the pipeline for the Chi-town native inside...
Kanye West is gearing up for a busy couple of months with a few projects set to be released in the near future.
First, the Chi-town native revealed he's moving BACK to Chicago. Yeezy popped up at the Open Mike (no typo) event for highschoolers held at Harold Washington Library in his hometown where he made the announcement he was coming back home.
"I'm moving back to Chicago and I'm never leaving again," 'Ye said before everyone in the auditorium erupted in cheers.

According to TMZ, Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian West have already found a home in Chicago and that the home is allegedly where he wants to establish his permanent residence with their three kids, North, Saint and Chicago West. Hmph. We doubt Kim was thrilled about the move. While they're supposedly moving to the Windy City, the Wests are still going to keep all of their L.A. properties.
They have several properties in L.A., which include the house they had built and 300 acres that 'Ye is developing.
It's reported he'll be moving his Yeezy Offices from Calabasas to Chicago. The site reports:
It's a little confusing, but we're told Kanye views it this way ... that he will have a home base in Chicago, but apparently he believes he can have more than one home base.
You'll recall ... Kanye launched Donda's House -- named after his mom -- in Chicago in 2013. It's a place for artists to develop their skills and collab with others.
Kanye will be collaborating with his Chi-town homie Chance The Rapper on a new joint album titled, Good Ass Job.
"Me and Chance working on a new album. It's called 'Good Ass Job'," he said before the highschoolers LOST it.
Peep the announcement above.
13 years ago Kanye West promised that his College Dropout album series would end with #GoodAssJob. It was supposed to be the follow-up to “Graduation.” Instead we got “Dark Twisted Fantasy.” Chance The Rapper said he would pick up the baton in 2016

Speaking of new music...

The Grammy award winner hopped on Twitter to tease a new album titled Yandhi, set to drop September 29th. We hear it's supposed to be a follow up to his YEEZUS album. ("Yandhi," Ye + Gandhi “Yeezus,” Ye + Jesus). The album cover also looks similar to his 2013 YEEZUS cover.
On the same day...

To coincide with his album, 'Ye will be returning to "Saturday Night Live" for a live performance to kick off the show's 44th season on September 29th. Star Wars actor Adam Driver has been tapped to host.
Kanye has performed on "SNL" seven times and his most recent performance was in 2016 when Melissa McCarthy hosted. After "SNL" announced 'Ye would be performing, Kanye hopped on Twitter to alter the announcement, removing his name and putting the name of his new album Yandhi:

Previously, 'Ye teased that Watch The Throne 2 was coming down the pipeline as well. No word if Jay Z will be on the alleged album, yet.
Are we here for the Kanye takeover?
