KANYE West returned to Instagram wearing a black face mask and a necklace bearing his children's names.
The rapper – who recently compared his home with Kim Kardashian to prison – cropped up on social media in a series of moody shots to promote his new album Donda.
Kanye shared close-ups of his gold chain necklace, which had the names of his four kids with Kim – North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
Saint was seen wearing a similar necklace with his name on it in a photo Kim posted on Instagram this week, captioned: "Just how?"
In other photos from the shoot, Kanye wore leather pants, a black hoodie, gloves and a black mask that covered his entire head as well as goggles, while crouching on top of two silver drums.
He also held his gloved hands up to his face – covered in the mask – in one close-up.
Kanye then shared his latest ad for Beats By Dre, starring track star Sha'Cjarri Richardson.
In the minute-long spot, he revealed that his latest album Donda will be released on Friday, July 23.
The ad – scored and edited by Kanye – features a snippet of his new song No Child Left Behind.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that the former Olympian hopeful will not be heading to the Tokyo Olympics as she was left off the US relay team after a positive drug test.
After testing positive for THC, there was still some hope that she may be able to run in the Olympics as part of the 4×100 relay team.
However, a roster released by USA Track and Field earlier this month did not include the athlete.
In Kanye's video, Sha'Carri, 21, worked up a sweat as Kanye sang: “He’s done miracles on me.”
Text then appeared onscreen that read: “Live Your Truth. DONDA Listening Event. Livestream on Apple Music. Thursday at 8PM ET.”
SOCIAL MEDIA RETURN
Prior to promoting his album, the last post Kanye had shared showed him voting for himself during the United States Presidential election last fall.
As of Tuesday night, the only person he follows on Instagram is his ex-wife, KUWTK star Kim, 40 – who filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage.
The Sun exclusively revealed on Monday that Kanye broke down in tears at his album launch after playing a song about his divorce from Kim.
His new track Welcome to my Life includes lyrics about his tough last two years, which included his split from the reality star, a meltdown on Twitter and his failed bid to become US President.
In the song, he likens his and Kim’s marital home in Calabasas, LA, to jail, rapping: “Tell the assassins I escaped from Calabasas.”
A source at the listening party in Las Vegas, said: “It’s a very deep, sad song about Kanye, with him reflecting on his marriage with Kim.
“He talks about the kids and mentions her taking everything. After he played this song he paused for like, two minutes, and cried. It was really sombre.”
Kanye held the party for his tenth album, Donda – named after his late mother – at the US city’s ChurchLV, for Christians.
