[News]: Kanye West Cryptically Tweets "June Eighteen": Album Release Date, Baby Due Date or Something Else?


Who knew Kanye West was such a tease?

The rapper hopped on Twitter Thursday morning and proceeded to post this cryptic tweet: "June Eighteen."
Nothing more. Nothing less.

Kanye West has the Internet abuzz after tweeting what appears to be a release date for his album.

“June Eighteen,” tweeted the G.O.O.D. Music chief on Thursday morning. He also deleted all of his previous tweets.

He didn’t provide any more information, but there is speculation that his sixth solo album will arrive that day. The date falls on a Tuesday when albums are typically released in the U.S. However, Kanye’s label Def Jam has not confirmed anything.

All signs are pointing towards new music. The hip-hop mogul has been in Paris recording the follow-up to his 2010 solo album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. He will also perform on the May 18 season finale of “SNL.”

During a trip to New York last month, the father-to-be stopped by his label to play music. Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg claims the album is done and has a “dark” tone. “Everyone at the label listened to the album and loved it,” he said. “I heard it’s dark, but really good.”

Details surrounding his recording sessions remain under wraps, but he has been in the studio with Daft Punk, who programmed drums for the project. “It was very raw: he was rapping—kind of screaming primarily, actually,” Thomas Bangalter of the French duo told Rolling Stone. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck.”

June is shaping up to be a big month for Kanye. His girlfriend Kim Kardashian is also expected to give birth to their first child.

Not surprising, the lack of information as to what West was referring to created a bit of a frenzy, with fans quickly speculating what it could mean as they retweeted the message over 21,000 times within three hours.

Did the artist just reveal the release date of his new album? Or could it be the due date of his and Kim Kardashian's baby?
Guess time will tell. Until then, our calendars are now officially marked. For something!

A new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians premieres June 2 at 9 p.m. on E!
