Kanye West's once-cryptic "June 18th" tweet was in fact the release date for his sixth studio album, Yeezus, as confirmed by Rap Up. This comes a day after he literally world-premiered "New Slaves" projected onto 66 buildings scattered throughout the world. As he will appear on tonight's Saturday Night Live season finale, there is a chance where Kanye will perform "New Slaves" live. #YEEZYSEASON. SHAKE UPDATE: I'm not sure why some of y'all are even remotely shocked Kanye would title his album Yeezus. Y'all do remember this Rolling Stone cover I put up top right? That was 2006!

  • SMF

    i cant get jiggy wit that album title. whats wit rappers and all this blasphemous shit these days?

  • er

    ^ you probably live a life that somewhat contradicts what your god teaches, sex, drugs, hatred, drinking etc, yet youre offended by a metaphoric album title. put things into perspective brah

  • Zak

    So j cole, fab, Mac miller, and yeezy that day, then wale next week? Goddamn

    • http://twitter.com/ayooodevo DeVonte

      Cole comes out the same day as Wale

  • Tekwon

    Yeezus? Serious? Wtf is wrong with this dude? Please go away! And take Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and any other self obsessed obnoxious celebrity with you dude!

  • Kev

    I am a God was too controversial so he names it Yeezus.. HA.. To anybody buggin about blasphemy, Jesus wasn't even his real name.. It was something more like Yeshua.. People never research the shit they blindly follow

    • Carlos

      It's Jehovah but in Latin it's spelled with an I

      Shout out to Indiana jones for that one lol

  • 1hunnit

    @Zak - Actually J Cole and Wale are on the same day..June 25th

    • Fan

      J cole moved his album up a week to June 18

      • Cramp

        Really?? Sick dude where did u hear that

  • SF

    Haha Yeezus.. High expectations on this one Ye!

  • ewr

    critics are going to give this bad reviews based on the title alone,.

  • poi

    not to compare ye to pac, but when pac started portaying himself as jesus a white caddy drove by

    • Rosebudd

      Lmao real shit

  • MusicHead

    I'm expecting another classic period, nothing less.

  • joshestes

    since when did critics give two shits about what offends Christians? the answer is never. ha.

  • REAL

    @Kev Jesus was his real name, it's the english version of Yeshua (Which is Hebrew)

    Don't talk shit if you don't know the religion

  • hill

    ...yeezy makes his return...

  • Broskigotthe.30

    Yeezy season has returned!

  • Broskigotthe.30

    I'm buying 10 copies!

  • Kev

    ^^^ That's what I mean, Jesus is a translation.. His real name is Yeshua.. It's not like Yeshua is so hard to pronounce that we have to change his name

  • REAL

    @Kev And Jesus is also his real name in ENGLISH! are we Hebrew? NO!

    Thats like me calling some guy Anthony, and then you say no his real name is Antonio, ITS THE SAME THING! Different languages!

  • Jiggs

    I feel like Kanye is doing this just to see what kind of reaction it will get...I would not at all be surprised to see the title change by the release date.

  • YEEZUS CHRIST

    Yeezus is the GREATEST LP TITLE OF ALL TIME....

  • Kev

    @REAL I'm gonna have to disagree with you.. If a man was given the name Antonio then it's Antonio, not Anthony, & vice versa. I don't believe in translating names the way we translate words. English didn't even exist during Jesus' time. I do normally say Jesus because I'm American & I don't feel like getting into this stupid argument all the time but it really should be Yeshua because that's what he was called by in his time.

  • REAL

    @Kev LOL ok sure i respect your opinion

    But anyway can't wait for Yeezus!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • eq

    @joshestes right because you cant be a critic and christian

  • rweqe

    @poi sensationalistic faggot. pac was involved with some hardcore gangbangers and jumped one of them the night he died, what does that have to do with jesus.

    All y'all, including 2dopeboyz staff are tools for thinking, even believing 'Ye's next album is titled "Yeezus". Kanye's a lot of things but that man's way too talented, way too smart, way too cultured to name his album that bullshit. That shit corny as fuck! Dude hasn't released a solo album since 2010 and y'all are telling me he's gonna shit on every rapper with an album called "Yeezus"? Ha!

    What do I expect though? We now live in a world where we clamour for album snippets/leaks; a world where album reviews are posted weeks before the official release and/or a day (a FUCKING day) after the shit leaks; a world where album covers form basis of what the album's gonna sound like; a world where we dissect and decide how good (or shitty) a song is from horrendous YouTube rips. This is the rumour mill at work and all these "credible" blogs are posting this bullshit like it's the gospel. I don't blame them though since all you sheeple follow that bullshit and support these "credible" sites. Get that money my niggas coz clearly getting page views is of greater importance than "keeping it hip hop".

    Makes me wonder how y'all basterds would have been back in the vinyl/cassette tape era. Born in '86 so hop off! Guessing y'all are the "New Slaves"? You see what I did there!!

  • ji_gantus

    like daamn u lot really dopin this shit...like reallly??!!! like wtf is wrong you lot. this guys a joke, too much religious blasphemy whats this guy on. total disrespect. wished kanye would stop that such a waste of musical talent

  • Broskigotthe.30

    @geniebeanie

    Pop that tampon back in brooo and chillax ... It ain't tht damn serious

  • subject_90

    I really don't think its a creative title at all... I think Jayceons' "Jesus Piece" is more creative. Regardless, I am a fan of Ye, I will be buying the album but again... I feel like most of these un-signed rappers have better mixtape titles.#whatever though I know the album is going to be Dope! And mostly everyone who is anyone and is a fan of KWest or not, feel find At least one track they like off the album.

  • randy

    wish ktt homoerotic groupies would back into their pathetic holes.

  • Chase

    It's an album title. People are acting like he is changing his legal name to it. Holy shit.

  • TB

    Kev said "To anybody buggin about blasphemy, Jesus wasn’t even his real name.. It was something more like Yeshua.. People never research the shit they blindly follow"

    Your logic made me LOL. Of course "Jesus" wasn't his original name but it's the name millions of people have been calling him for centuries...

    Now do you understand why some are offended?

  • Jezus

    ima just rip-dl tht album kim got his ass w $$$ he fine no copies here!

  • Lazar

    If it sounds anything like MBDTF I will be all on that shit

  • Yishai

    @Carlos Jehovah is an English transliteration attempt of the Hebrew word for G-d, which no one really knows how to pronounce correctly. Jesus' real name was Yeshua.

    Why are we even talking about this anyways? I highly doubt he's naming his album this.

  • three

    I guess Hova gave birth to Yeezus.

  • gregory kruxx.

    Yeezus proves a worthy title based on whut Ive read thus far from the comments in this section alone. Yeezus. Crucified by the public for being misuderstood and deemed questionable and a possible threat to society because the affect the individual has had on the masses as well as the scutiny they receive from the masses from being themselves. Just like Jesus. Its a metaphor and art...yall need to stop crying about it. You dont have to like it. But you should respect it..Shit and at the end of the day whether you like it or dont you are commenting on it so apparently it has affected you if you are hahahahaha lol....simple minded fools

    • adreygoldie

      The best comment possible thanks bruh

    • CrowdKing

      ^truth. Title creates controversy which = sales. Best marketing i've seen in the past year.

  • DoinTooMuch

    Not okay with that picture at all. SMH You niggas have lost all your morals if you cosign this shit. Fuck creative expression, some shit just should not be messed with. Guess some niggas were raised differently.

  • Joe

    Jesus didnt run into poles lmao

  • gregory kruxx.

    @DoinTooMuch Says who? And why not? Does it really ruffle your panties that bad?? And that pics form 06 retard...smh...everything spiritual in itself is creative...Its up to you to see the connection. peace

    Any person of african kemite background knows that our beliefs where taken and used as a tool to reform our minds into thinking of our deities as saxons or europeans thus jesus was created at Nicea during constantines reign. They did it knowing that eventually all men would have melanin or a black gene...its a trick. Just like black ppl thinking they are "minorities" when europeans are. Kanye knows and is throwing their garbage back in their face. But they scare those who dont know their history by creating "illuminiati" more propaganda foolishness. Yeshua was real and he came to reminds black ppl who they were in love. For more read "black roots science pdf" peace and love
