Kanye West announces ‘Yeezus’ tour in a typically Kanye West way

The tour will be Yeezy's first in five years, and he'll be taking Kendrick Lamar along for the ride.

It looks like Kanye West is set to tour 'Yeezus'.

Taking to his official Twitter account, the rapper simply tweeted the word "TOUR" (minimal, right?), assured in the certainty that that one word will set the internet ablaze.

The tweet comes with an image of a tour poster featuring a crucified 'Ye and the word 'YEEZUS' in a Metallica-esque typeface, for some reason. It also mentions that it's his first solo tour in five years (!) and that he'll be taking none other than Kendrick Lamar along for the ride, which is nice.

You can read Dummy's take on 'Yeezus' here – the album, featuring Dummy faves Hudson Mohawke, Arca and Evian Christ on production, was one of our favourites of the year.
