Kanye West is as subtle as a shotgun, or perhaps like a grand piano thrown down the stairs. In any case, West is never short on ideas of how to make an appearance, just ask his friend, Taylor Swift. If his tweet this morning (see below) is any indication of what’s to come, fans can expect a new Kanye West album on June 18.
On Wednesday, West announced that he had finished recording an album of “dark” new material. And it may be coincidence, but June 18 also happens to fall on new music release Tuesday. West is scheduled to perform on “Saturday Night Live” on May 18 where he may debut some of his new songs.
The last time we heard from Mr. College Dropout was his beef with Justin Timberlake as Reverb reported. Maybe he felt his friendship with Jigga was at stake of being put on the backburner? The pressure is on with the media blitz of a new album coming up AND the pending birth of his baby with Kim Kardashian. Good luck, Mr. West.
