Y'all really thought Yeezy Season was over? Not even close.
After dropping his latest album, Ye, last week, which followed his previous month of controversial statements and actions, Kanye West will host something called Project Wyoming tonight in Miami.
He announced the event via his website, kanyewest.com.

Soon after came a controversial interview with TMZ in which he declared that slavery was "a choice" and that African slaves could have ended it had they not been "mentally imprisoned."

After the interview, Kanye reportedly completely reworked Ye and used the album to comment on his actions — "My wife callin', screamin', say we 'bout to lose it all" he says on "Wouldn't Leave" — but the record includes no endorsements of conservative politicians or public figures. It's also far less upsetting than his back-and-forth with T.I. on "Ye Vs. The People" and "Lift Yourself," AKA the "
