Kanye West Unveils Album Art for ‘Yeezus’

Yeezus
Def Jam

It’s going to be a cruel summer for rappers. Kanye West has debuted the cover art for his upcoming new album, ‘Yeezus.’ The collection will be available on June 18.

Undoubtedly, the artwork is, um, interesting to look at. It appears to be some type of gold block that was either chiseled or melted to look like…something. There’s a piece of red duct tape stuck on the side of the CD jewel box with the handwritten title “Yeezus.”

A Kanye West fan pointed out that the cover art might have been inspired by the gold works of artist George Condo. This could be true considering that Condo designed West’s album cover for 2010′s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.’

This past week, Yeezy has been on a marketing campaign to promote his upcoming sixth solo LP.

The G.O.O.D. Music leader debuted his latest video for ‘New Slaves’ in different locations on 66 buildings Friday (May 17). He also performed ‘Black Skinhead’ and ‘New Slaves’ on ‘Saturday Night Live.’

French production duo Daft Punk were among those lucky enough to hear West’s forthcoming project. Punk member Thomas Bangalter said Yeezy is on some other s—. “It was very raw; he was rapping — kind of screaming primally actually,” he told Rolling Stone. “Kanye doesn’t give a f—.”

Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ is available for pre-order right now via iTunes.
