Listen to Kanye West on iHeartRadio

Kanye West is putting Australia on hold for now.  A rep for the rapper revealed Tuesday that West is postponing the Australian leg of his "Yeezus" tour in May to get some work in on his new album. 

Kanye is reportedly trying to finish up the follow up to his critically-acclaimed 2013 album, Yeezus, before the end of the year.  He's also planning a May 24th wedding in Paris with fiancée Kim Kardashian.  Kanye is expected to reschedule his Australia dates for early September.
