Kanye West called into Big Boy’s Los Angeles radio show to discuss some of the hot topics surrounding his career. He offered up some of the latest information for his seventh-studio album, So Help Me God SWISH Waveswhich is as-of-press-time untitled, with one week to go until it drops.

“I wanted to get people’s opinions on how they felt,” West said on his wife Kim Kardashian’s recent poll pertaining to what Yeezy should name the new album.

He also wants to use something fairly unknown to us mortals for his “album of the life”- ultra light beams.

“I’m tryna open up hearts, minds,” he chuckled. “When I was sitting in the studio with Kirk, Kirk Franklin, and we’re just going through it, I said this is a gospel album, with a whole lot of cursing on it, but it’s still a gospel album. The gospel according to Ye. It’s not exactly what happened in the Bible, but it’s this story idea of Mary Magdalene becoming Mary.”

‘Ye couldn’t get through the interview without discussing the most buzzworthy feud of the past week- his Twitter spat with Wiz Khalifa over the possible title, Waves. According to West, mutual friend Malik Yusef was the one who aided in helping the rappers squash the beef.
