If we get a Yeezus 2 I don't know what I'm gonna do. Yeezus still to this day is my favorite album of all time and the possibility of a second one gives me such immense amounts of joy.

Kanye previously performed Yeezus tracks "Black Skinhead" and "New Slaves" on the late-night variety show. 

There's also the chance that Kanye is just messing around. Guess we'll find out soon enough.
