Guess what? Kanye West's seventh album, which is on its third title in less than a year, still doesn't have a definite name, despite the fact it's premiering at Madison Square Garden in seven days. Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian's Twitter poll revealed that folks preferred the original title, So Help Me God, best, and the latest title, Waves, least. (Swish is in the middle.) On Thursday morning, 'Ye called into Big Boy's Neighborhood on L.A.'s Real 92.3 and revealed that it's still unsettled.

Here's what else he had to say about what to expect from The Album Currently Known as Waves:

"Ultra...light...beams. I'm trying to open up hearts, minds. When I was sitting in the studio with Kirk [Franklin, gospel singer] and we were just going through it, I said, 'This is a gospel album with a whole lot of cursin' on it. But it's still a gospel album.' [Laughs] It's the gospel according to 'Ye, you know what I mean? It's not exactly what happened in the Bible, but it's the story of this idea of Mary Magdalene becoming Mary."

Good luck processing that, y'all. Listen here:

And what about the burning question of the week, whether Drake's pool is actually bigger than Kanye's, as posited on Drizzy's new track "Summer Sixteen"? "I have three pools," Yeezy answered Big Boy, letting silence fall. "That's it. That's my answer." There's also some behind-the-scenes of Kanye's short-lived, flame-seared beef with Wiz Khalifa in there.
