Kayne West once called himself “Young Putin,” and now he reportedly plans to travel to Russia to meet with President Vladimir Putin.

Yeezy also wants to hold his Sunday Service in Moscow, according to Billboard. West’s strategic advisor, Ameer Sudan, is planning the trip, and says, “Russia is going to be ‘a second home’ for Ye. He will be spending a lot of time out there.” Kanye will apparently explore business and musical opportunities in the country.

The Sunday Service shows will be Ye’s first performances in Russia, and he plans to invite Putin to attend as a special guest.

The 22-time Grammy winner also debuted the black-and-white video for “Heaven and Hell” from his Donda album Monday night during the broadcast of the College Football Playoff national championship game between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama. Georgia won, 33-15.

The clip shows a dark, impoverished society filled with people wearing black hoodies and the face-obscuring masks Kanye wore during his Donda listening events. On the broadcast, the video segued into a promo for Ye’s Yeezy Gap fashion line and the hoodies worn in the video.

As previously reported, Netflix released a teaser on Monday for a three-part Kanye West documentary titled jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy that will debut February 16 on the streaming platform. The doc’s first act, Vision, will be shown in theaters nationwide on February 10 for a one-day engagement.
