With the clock ticking, anticipation is mounting for Kanye West's newest album, Yandhi. Set to be released Saturday night, West is looking to start anew following the chaotic release of his June album ye. 

On Thursday (Sept. 27), West ventured over to Fader's NYC offices to preview the album. The publication recapped the entire session and pointed out that West has several features on the project, including slots held by Ty Dolla $ign -- who reportedly appears on multiple songs -- 6ix9ine and XXXTentacion. Earlier this month, West was spotted in the studio with the "Gummo" rapper. Prior to their collaboration, 6ix9ine revealed to TMZ in May that he and West had recorded a song together. 

As for XXXTentacion, West had effusive praise for the fallen 20-year-old after his fatal shooting in June. "Rest in peace," West wrote on Twitter at the time. "I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here. Thank you for existing." On Wednesday, West apologized for not supporting XXX, along with A$AP Bari, after public accusations against them. 

"Bari challenged me when no one else did and when he got in trouble, I was scared to say he was my friend, just like I did with xxx and that was some pussy shit on my part," West wrote on Instagram. "I let the perception and the robots control me. That’s the true sunken place."
