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.
Jay-Z and The Notorious B.I.G. "The Commission"
"Love The Dough," "Brooklyn's Finest," "Young G's?" It's hard to think that a collaborative album between these two legendary artists would have been anything other then critically acclaimed. Between 1996-97 the album was looking more and more likely, but when Biggie was killed, Jay-Z, Diddy, Charli Baltimore, Lil Cease and Lane "Un" Rivera all went their separate ways.
