The controversial rap star was working at the iconic Electric Lady Studios prior to filming 'Saturday Night Live', but Kanye - who was joined by his wife Kim Kardashian West - had his intern collect various deliveries from the likes of Luke's Lobster, Jimmy John's and Liquiteria during the session.

An eyewitness told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "Every 10 minutes, a young man who seemed to be an intern would come out [of the studio] with a sticky note and a credit card to run an errand."

The intern was also responsible for getting bagels, protein bars, beer, Starbucks coffee, yellowtail sashimi and white tape for Kanye, his wife and other people at the session.

Kanye had originally pledged to release his eagerly awaited new album, 'Yandhi', over the weekend - but he is instead now planning to release it on November 23.

The rapper - who has kids North, five, Saint, two, and eight-month-old Chicago with Kim - also revealed he's planing to head to Africa in a couple of weeks to finish the rest of the new album.

Kanye explained: "We have to go to what is known as Africa.

"I just need to go and find out what it's really called and grab the soil and cook five meals a day so the metabolism stays up and have my kids in the studio and have my mic in the open, so you can hear nature while we're recording.

"We're going to bring out the album on what is known as Black Friday on November 23, and I'm just so happy about what is happening."
