The Aftermath Of 'Jesus Is King 2' Leak
The music world is buzzing with controversy after the recent leak of Kanye West and Dr. Dre’s highly anticipated album, “Jesus Is King 2”. While fans eagerly awaited the sequel to Kanye’s 2019 gospel album, the leak has triggered strong reactions, including one from acclaimed producer FredWreck, signed to Dr. Dre’s legendary Aftermath label, who referred to Kanye in a controversial tweet as a “5150 psychotic double-crossing leaking bitch.” In this article, we delve into the aftermath of this leak and what it means for Kanye West.
The Leak and Its Fallout
The leak of “Jesus Is King 2” took place on September 25, causing an immediate stir in the music industry. This leak not only disappointed fans but also sparked a heated response from FredWreck, who has an impressive track record working with artists like 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem. His choice of words to describe Kanye West as “psychotic” has ignited a debate about the leak and its impact on the reputation of both artists involved.
What “Jesus Is King 2” Holds
The leaked album comprises 15 songs and features a star-studded lineup of collaborators. Heavyweights like Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Anderson .Paak, A$AP Ferg, and Marsha Ambrosius are just a few of the notable names featured. The album largely consists of remixed versions of tracks from its predecessor, with Dr. Dre adding his touch to songs like “Water,” “Everything We Need,” and “God Is.”
Additionally, fans can expect new verses and guest appearances, with standout tracks including “Closed On Sunday” featuring Dr. Dre and Anderson .Paak, “Hands On” with Travis Scott, and “Use This Gospel” featuring Eminem, a track familiar to fans from DJ Khaled’s “GOD DID”.
The Long-Awaited Sequel
“Jesus Is King 2” was first announced by Kanye West back in November 2019, shortly after the release of the original album. The excitement among fans was palpable as they anticipated the sequel, which promised to be another significant gospel-inspired project.
During a Sunday Service event in California, Kanye shared his admiration for Dr. Dre and humorously mentioned that creating a gospel album had led to his unexpected collaboration with the legendary producer. He humorously remarked, “Spend your time on God, and he’ll handle the rest.”
Kanye’s Ongoing Musical Journey
Despite the leak and its aftermath, Kanye West remains undeterred. Reports indicate that he is already working on another album with a return to his classic sound, often referred to as the “old Kanye.”
Currently staying in Italy with his wife, Bianca Censori, Kanye is said to have completed 10 new songs in a week, collaborating with artists like 88 Keys and Ty Dolla $ign. This creative burst suggests that Kanye is in a positive creative space, and fans are eager to see what he has in store.
Earlier this month, Kanye surprised fans at a London fashion show by previewing an unreleased track in which he mentioned celebrity jeweler Johnny Dang. While the release date for his upcoming album remains uncertain, speculations suggest that Kanye might choose to drop it independently without major label involvement.
As the music world continues to react to the leak of “Jesus Is King 2,” Kanye West’s resilience and ongoing musical journey suggest that there’s more to come from the iconic artist, with new music poised to make waves once again.
