Kanye West pretty much took over the weekend. After debuting “New Slaves” on 66 different buildings around the globe and performing for SNL’s season finale, it seems that the artwork for Kanye’s new album, Yeezus, is making headlines.
Usually, we’d wait on a confirmation tweet from the man himself before we post but his manager Don C. posted an instagram with the caption, “#yeezy2seasonhasreturned #yeezus.”
Real enough? The cover looks like a Jesus piece melted inside the CD case. According to Rap-Up, the artwork was posted on ‘Ye’s official site along with a pre-order link but was later removed.
finally drops June 18th.
In case you missed it, Kanye West had 66 screenings of “New Slaves” in 10 different cities. The cities and locations were shared on a map found on Kanye West’s official site. As you can see, Kanye’s face was projected on the side of buildings (like the one above). Mikey Fresh (Miss Info) captured one debut in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Just pretend like you were there.
For SNL’s season finale, the show brought out Kim Kardashian’s baby daddy also known as the majestic Kanye West for a special closing out performance.

“Black Skinhead” is posted above and “New Slaves,” which premiered in 66 buildings in 66 different locations before it was performed live on SNL, is posted below.

When my mom came back from Russia last year, she brought me a hand painted egg. I’m using this story as an intro so I can somehow tie it in with Kim’s dress. However, the post is not about the dress, no no no, it is about Kanye West releasing new music. AHHHHHHHHH.
Yup. Kanye performed new tracks in front of a well dressed (punk was the theme) A-list crowd at the Met Gala 2013. We’re not really sure on titles but we do know he premiered new music because A-Trak did post a picture on Instagram with the caption, “Ye premiering the new album… #mask #jimcarrey”
A-Trak does not lie.
