Rap-Up is reporting that Kanye West's sixth solo album, slated for a June 18 release date, now has a title. The album will be called Yeezus.
The Internet has been abuzz thanks to Kanye's premiere of "New Slaves" last night in a radical marketing campaign that featured projections across the country. Tonight, all eyes will be on Saturday Night Live, where Yeezy is the musical guest.
Wondering where we have seen "Yeezus" before? Kid Cudi coined the nickname on Twitter back in October 2011

Thanks to Cudi, "Yeezus" must have stuck with Kanye.
