Kanye West Unveils ‘Yeezus’ Artwork

Yeezus

The last two days have been full of surprises for Kanye West fans. Following the worldwide debut of “New Slaves” and his performance on “SNL,” Mr. West has unveiled what appears to be the artwork for his sixth solo album Yeezus, available June 18.

The unconventional cover looks like a melted gold object, possibly a Jesus piece. A piece of red duct tape is stuck to the side, with the title “Yeezus” handwritten with a Sharpie. The black-and-white CD shows behind the clear jewel case. The image was posted on ‘Ye’s official site along with a pre-order link, but it was later removed.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s manager Don C. also posted a photo of the CD on their Instagram accounts.

    He’s doing a Justin Timberlake ’20/20 experience’ flex by SPEEDING through the normal album release proceedings! lol

    @NICOLAS, Because he can. His album will push major units regardless just off his name alone.

    @NICOLAS, kill that sh-t. Ye doesn’t need to do what corny ass Justin does. KanyE is a genius. Justin is a puppet.

    kanye’s last 3 albums have had no text on the covers. theres no way that sticky note is part of the art. its clearly just “office” labelling

    wait… so is the red duct tape gonna be on ALL the CD’s? i don’t get it..

    or is it just for promo/exclusivity purposes right now, so leakers don’t get a hold of the inside CD?

    The red tape is clearly because this is just the copies that will be sent out to the managers at the labels, magazines and trusted blog sites that will preview some of the material so that reviews and added promo before the release will get the hype going, plus there is no booklet inside the case so its clearly not the finished product. All that aside i seriously can not wait to here this LP!

    @Piers-knightly, there have been albums without booklets before (System of a Down and Mos Def). Who knows about the red tape though, or it could be censoring something

    Why would anybody believe this or the article about the album title? Why would only rap-up have this information? They don’t even cite any sources…or explain how they became the exclusive site with this info.

    Don’t believe what you hear until you hear it from Ye.
