New Kanye LP Out 6/18?
UPDATE: Elliott Wilson has retracted his confirmation.
This morning Kanye West revived his consistently-scrubbed-of-content Twitter account with a mysterious tweet that read, “June Eighteenth.” It was reported earlier this week that West’s next solo LP was finished, but there are enough things going on in the Yeezyiverse — Kim’s due date, a response to Ray J.’s sad and gauche “I Hit It First” — that it would have been fun to let the date sit on its own. Rap journalism icon Elliott Wilson, however, has received confirmation from Chris Atlas at Def Jam that this, in fact, is the an album release date. West will perform on Saturday Night Live later this month where, perhaps, he will debut some new material. Or, finally respond to “I Hit It First.” Please, Kanye. Let Seth Meyers help you respond to “I Hit It First.”
