Kanye West's 'Yeezus' Leaks Four Days Before Official Release Date


Kanye West


The follow-up album to 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' made its way to a file-sharing website on Friday afternoon, June 14.

Kanye West's upcoming album, "Yeezus", hit the internet earlier than expected. The highly-anticipated album made its way to a password-protected file-sharing service just four days ahead of its June 18 official release date.

Following the leak, further details on the project emerged. West's previously-confirmed collaborators Chief Keef, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, Daft Punk and Rick Rubin appear on the album alongside Kid Cudi, Hudson Mohawke, Travis Scott, Arca and Evian Christ.

West hasn't commented on the news, but it's apparently not a big deal for him. During West's listening party at New York's Milk Studios earlier this week, the 36-year-old rapper treated his guests with ten tracks, including "I Am a God", "Black Skinhead", "New Slaves", "On Site" and a song called "Hold My Liquor".

West didn't restrict the party attendees from using their phones to record the songs in the album. He had no qualms with the project leaking as he told the guests at the bash, "I have this new strategy. It's called no strategy. This album is all about giving. This whole process is all about giving no f*cks at all."

"The whole way this whole album was put together, the amount of producers that came together for it, and the way we worked on this shit really collectively, collaboratively, we really didn't give a f**k what nobody else said-outside looking in or anything. We just wanted to make the best product possible," he continued.

"Yeezus" is West's sixth studio effort. The follow-up to 2010's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" will not be available for pre-orders. West recently explained the meaning behind the album title. He said, "Simply put, West was my slave name. Yeezus is my god name."
