CHICAGO — The world can't get enough of Kanye West. At least that's what he hopes.

Three days before the official release of his sixth studio album, "Yeezus," the not-so-humble rapper who grew up in Chicago promised via Twitter he'd unveil some new music on the outside of buildings throughout the world.

In May, West unveiled a video for his song "New Slaves" by projecting it onto 66 buildings across the globe, including Wrigley Field, the Chicago History Museum, the Field Museum, the University of Chicago and Millennium Park's Crown Fountain.

The stunt proved especially disruptive when it was screened on the side of a Walgreens in Wicker Park, which shut down traffic at the intersections of Milwaukee, North and Damen avenues.

West's tweets and website promised new music at the following locations:

Field Museum, 12:30-1 a.m.

• Union Station, 12:30-1 a.m.

• Millennium Park, 1:30-2 a.m.

• United Center, 1:30-2 a.m.

 DuSable Museum, 9:30-10 p.m.

• U.S. Cellular Field, 10:30-11 p.m.

• Bridgeview Bank, 4753 N. Broadway Ave., 10:30-11 p.m.,

• McCormick Place, 11:30 p.m.-12 a.m.

• Pritzker Park, 11:30 p.m.-12 a.m.
