With Jesus Is King's release date changed once again to this Friday, let's take a look at hip-hop's other infamous releases that never materialized.
Chances are October 25 will come and go without a new album from Kanye West.
We've come to expect being disappointed by Kanye. And despite his recent official "announcement" about the release of his album Jesus Is King via Twitter, fans were quick to troll and dismiss the tweet as a false promise. It's been a rough road for Kanye fans in the last year. His recent "Sunday Service" performances have disturbed the masses. Some believe they affirm Kanye's long-held God complex, while others view his latest post-MAGA obsession to be more of a manic episode. Some believe he's simply spreading the gospel and that he's truly been "saved." Regardless, it's all cast Jesus Is King in a puzzling light, and fans truly don't know what to expect, or whether to expect anything at all. The one thing we know for certain is that the guy is a total pr*ck to his wife these days.
Will Jesus Is King become the next Fear Inoculum? Probably. It would be quite like Kanye to be his own hype beast. In the meantime, let's take a look back at a few of hip-hop's other notorious unreleased projects, all of which are, honestly, more likely to be released in 2019 than Jesus Is King.
Rick Ross and Drake "Y.O.L.O."
Before the phrase "Y.O.L.O." was turned into a bastardized acronym that pertained to excessive drinking, the slogan served as a pending title for Drizzy's still-unreleased collaborative mixtape with Rick Ross. From "Lord Knows" to "Made Men" and, most recently, "Money In The Grave," the duo has a unique chemistry, and an album together would dominate the Hip-Hop world. But though it was announced in 2011, the project has yet to appear due to scheduling conflicts and the like. A track allegedly from the project eventually appeared online as part of a J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League mixtape in 2016, but since then, neither emcee has spoken on a release date.
