While details surrounding the leak are still emerging, reports from HipHopDX shed some light on what fans can expect from “Jesus Is King 2.” The leaked album reportedly consists of 15 tracks, primarily featuring Dre-helmed remixes of songs from the original “Jesus Is King.” Moreover, the project boasts an impressive lineup of guest artists, including Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Anderson .Paak, A$AP Ferg, and Marsha Ambrosius. Additionally, it includes several new verses from Kanye West himself.
The leak has sparked excitement among fans of both artists, as it offers a glimpse into their collaborative creativity. However, it’s important to note that the leaked version of “Jesus Is King 2” may be unfinished, leaving room for potential changes or final touches.
Kanye West’s career has been marked by both innovation and controversy, and his recent musical endeavors are no exception. Notably, West is currently navigating the industry without a record label or publishing deal. He parted ways with Universal and Sony Music, respectively, at the conclusion of his previous deals. This move coincided with a period of controversy, including several anti-Semitic comments made by the artist, which led to the termination of various business deals.
Kanye West’s prolific nature as a musician is evident in his extensive catalog of unreleased albums. “Jesus Is King 2” was initially announced by West in November 2019, shortly after the release of an expanded version of the original “Jesus Is King” album.
In a Twitter post at the time, West hinted at the collaboration with Dr. Dre, stating, “Ye and Dre Jesus is King Part II coming soon.” Accompanying the announcement was a photo of West and the West Coast hitmaker working together in the studio.
Reflecting on the project and his artistic journey, Kanye West shared, “Jesus Is King is my first clean album. I used to spend all my time trying to make my beats be mixed as good as Dr. Dre. Who knew all I had to do was do an album for God, and then Dr. Dre would start mixing my beats? Spend your time on God, and he’ll handle the rest.”
As fans eagerly await more details about “Jesus Is King 2,” it’s clear that this unexpected leak has ignited curiosity and anticipation within the music community. Whether this unreleased project will see an official release remains to be seen, but it undeniably adds another intriguing chapter to Kanye West’s ever-evolving career.
