Kanye is new father of a baby girl with Kim Kardashian who just so coincidentally was born around the dropping time of his new album, and according to news sources, the arrival was a few weeks or more earlier than Kardashian’s expected due date!

Although most people probably did not know what to expect with the album’s cover art work, Kanye kept it, well let’s just say basic, plain and simple.

“Yeezus” is Ye’s sixth studio album released under Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam Recordings and is said to be primarily recorded in Paris, the promotion included worldwide video projections of the albums music and there’s no doubt this will be an album to remember and look back on for its unique creativity and popularity.
