Kanye West has apparently completed his new album and turned it into his label Def Jam, and today the rapper reactivated his twitter account to post "June Eighteen", which one would have to guess will be it's release date. In March, West told a Parisian audience that he was going to be releasing new material in a few months, and has been in the studio in Paris with the likes of James Blake, 2 Chainz, Chief Keef, Azealia Banks, Daft Punk and more.

Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter told Rolling Stone "It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually," with Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo adding simply: "Kanye doesn't give a fuck." Truer words have rarely been spoken.


This will be West's first solo release since 2010's masterful My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and one would imagine that West will debut some of this new material during his appearance on Saturday Night Live's season finale on May 18th and at his headlining appearance at New York's Governor's Ball festival.
