Kanye West is letting the world know his children are the center of his world.  The rapper made a grand return to Instagram on Tuesday ahead of releasing his hotly anticipated 10th studio album, DONDA, and dedicated his first post to his four children.

Wiping his Instagram clean, Ye shared a slideshow of several chain necklaces that bear the names of his four children — NorthSaintChicago and Psalm — whom he shares with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.  It should be noted that Kim is the only person Kanye still follows on Instagram.

Since then, the rapper has shared three other posts, which include his latest Beats by Dre ad that stars runner Sha’Carri Richardson. Other snaps depict him kneeling in an empty stadium, while the latest depicts him wearing a DONDA sweater while facing a whiteboard that seemingly reveals the album’s track listing.

DONDA, Ye’s 10th studio effort, is named after his late mother, Donda West, who passed in 2007.  The album is due out Friday, July 23.

Ye will hold a listening event tonight at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The event, which will also stream on Apple Music, starts at 8 p.m. ET.  It was also announced DONDA will feature Lil BabyTravis Scott and Pusha T.

Billboard reports that, to celebrate the album’s release, the 44-year-old rapper will take over Rolling Loud Miami on Sunday.  Sources claim that the event, held at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, would be the first festival headlined by Ye since he played Coachella in 2019.
