Rap-Up has reported that Kanye West’s sixth studio album will be released on June 18. It will also be titled Yeezus.
Last night, ‘Ye did something very unconventional for hip-hop standards. He premiered his single, “New Slaves,” on the sides of 66 buildings across the world. From the brooding production to its jarring lyrics, the song is proof that this is measuring up to be his biggest album yet.
Over the last few months, very small details have been revealed for his album. What we do know is he has collaborated with everyone from Hudson Mohawke and Young Chop to Skrillex and Daft Punk. He has a few songs that have been circulating online—one named “Awesome” and the other fittingly titled “I Am A God.”
On the season finale of Saturday Night Live tonight, West is expected to premiere new material.
