(AllHipHop News) Some rap fans and pundits were preparing for a possible sales battle between North Carolina newcomer DaBaby and Chicago veteran Kanye West. Some reports now suggest DaBaby’s Kirk could be the only LP from the two rhymers to arrive on Friday.
A source told Variety that Kanye’s Jesus Is King is being pushed back from its announced September 27 release date. However, someone extremely close to Ye, his wife Kim Kardashian, informed her 62 million Twitter followers that the project is still coming out this week. Kardashian retweeted a tweet from the @colinags Twitter account that read, “2 more days Jesus is King.” Colin only has 2,515 followers, but two of those people are Kim K and Kanye.
Meanwhile, New York Times reporter Joe Coscarelli tweeted on Thursday, “It’s Kanye so who knows but I’m hearing from many industry people that ‘Jesus Is King’ is not coming on Friday, despite people on the ground in Wyoming trying to make it happen........”
@colinags replied to Coscarelli’s post by writing, “Kim wouldn’t be retweeting countdowns if this was so…” The unknown individual later admitted, “I know as much about Kanye’s album as [everyone] else here. I’m trying to piece it together just as everyone else is. I’m not an ‘insider.’ I don’t get why @Variety is unsure of my identity, but I’d love to be friends with the person that wrote that. lol.”
