Has Kanye West finally listened to his publicist? (Does he have one?) The "Black Skinhead" rapper says it'll be six months before we hear him "talk sh-t" again.

During his Toronto Yeezus show earlier this week, Yeezy told the crowd, "Everything I'm saying that's not allowed, soak it in right now. This might be the last time y'all hear me talk sh-t for a long time. Might be another like six months. At least. You’re just gonna have to run back the interviews and sh-t if you wanna hear some realness.

"I'm gonna tell y'all right now that all of the ideas, what they call 'the rants,' the streams of consciousness that I express, I told y'all, save those tapes and everything because I've decided to completely focus everything in 2014, on new ideas and on creative outlets.

"I’m not [going to] ever bring up Nike again," Yeezy continued. "And the only way I’ll bring them up is in a positive light... I’ll never bring up the Grammys again in a negative light, because I actually appreciate the 21 Grammys that I did win."

Is that... gratitude? Sounds like Ghost of Christmas Future stopped by Kanye's house this year!

So, what's coming up for Kanye in 2014? A new album, according to Q-Tip, who recently told Life + Times that he was working on new Yeezy material with Yeezus producer Rick Rubin.

And fans can also expect to get a glimpse of Ye's ADIDAS collaboration, but not until the end of the year. (September to be exact.) After many public rants about his time working with Nike and a public apology to the shoe company, congrats to Ye for finally letting it go.
