Kanye West to Release New Album ‘Yeezus’ on June 18

Yeezus

Yeezus is coming. After much anticipation, Kanye West will release his sixth solo album next month.

Rap-Up.com can confirm that the follow-up to 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy will be titled Yeezus and arrive on June 18.

The G.O.O.D. Music rapper premiered a new song entitled “New Slaves” last night via projections on buildings in 10 cities across the world. The song, about modern day slavery, features vocals from Frank Ocean.

The 35-year-old West stirred speculation about the June 18 date with a tweet earlier this month.

During a trip to New York last month, the father-to-be stopped by his label Def Jam to play music. Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg described the album as having a “dark” tone. “Everyone at the label listened to the album and loved it,” he said. “I heard it’s dark, but really good.”

Details surrounding his recording sessions remain scarce, but he has been in the studio with Daft Punk, who programmed drums for the album. “It was very raw: he was rapping—kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas Bangalter of the French duo told Rolling Stone. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck.”

Kanye is expected to premiere new material during tonight’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live.”

UPDATE: Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s manager Don C. have posted the following photo on Instagram.

    @SJB, I’ve heard two rumors — one being that Cole moved his album up, the other that he pushed it back to July 9. I’m confused :X

    [Reply]

    Breeangel Reply:

    @SJB, Cole will be fine. His album comes out June 25 not June 18 and his loyal fanbase (me included) will make sure his album is a #1…i cant help but feel Kanye is trying to tell Cole that the summer is really his lol..after Cole released Cole Summer Kanye sent that tweet saying “June 18″ lol…i sense a friendly competition going on…hopefully Cole makes the amazing album i know he’s capable of : )

    @randy, fuck you…..Kanye is a demon and talentless as well….As for kelly rowland.just because The dream wrote Dirty Laundry for her doesn’t mean she can’t write her own songs….She wrote most of the songs on her previous albums.Get your facts right before saying shits.I forgot to mention that kanye is very ugly too with his gay ass.I bet his holes is wider than that of Kim horelishan’s pussy

    he’s not the first rapper to say that he’s god like. Rakim, Jay, etc. & honestly I don’t believe it’s called that. before MBDTF came out everyone was calling it “Good Ass Job.” wait till he announces the title.

    @Larry., kanye himself had announced good ass job

    [Reply]

    Larry. Reply:

    @dfas, I remember Big Sean saying good ass job. I don’t remember Ye. maybe I’m wrong but I don’t remember. & before MBDTF he released power before he dropped the title, which is similar. & I’m sure if Kanye wanted us to know the title he would announce it just like he did the release date. not rap-up haha.

    If you call yourself a Christian do not judge others. I definitely by no means whatsoever support this action of kanye, but we cannot judge him. We have to pray for him, and EVERYONE who intends on following his lead. Don’t base you’re views on Christians on one person who claims “Christianity”, when they are not being a good example. I pray all of y’all actually come to your senses and realize the TRUTH about JESUS CHRIST, and see that this “yeezus” business is not the answer. Also for all of the other artists out there who are leading society in the wrong direction.
