Kanye West is never one to shy away from hyperbole or megalomania, and it doesn’t appear he has any plans to cut back on his visions of grandeur. According to the Rap-Up, Kanye has announced his follow-up to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy will be out June 18, and that it’s called Yeezus.
Yep, Yeezus. And while other details about it are scarce, it’s reportedly “dark,” and features beats from Daft Punk, so that should be amazing.
