It comes following reports that West’s long-awaited rap album was not dropping on Friday as anticipated and would be delayed for two days. But as TMZ noted, Sunday came and went and the “Gold Digger” hitmaker’s album has yet to drop because sources told the outlet that he’s still tweaking it and working on it. A new release date has yet to be announced.

According to a Fox News report, the “Jesus is King” album is an “evangelical rant” about the evils of the modern world, including a hit on Instagram and telling young people to “put the ‘gram away.”

There is also a song called “LA Monster” that goes after life in Los Angeles where “they lettin’ Satan run they streets.”

“It’s the ugliest nightmare born from the prettiest dreams; millions of people trying to get on the scene; and everyone selling their souls, everyone saying they woke, but they sleepwalking, dead, eyes closed,” the lyrics to West’s song read.

There is also reportedly a song called “Hands On” in which West says he deserves another chance like in baseball where there is “three strikes” following his comment about 400 years of slavery being a “choice” by African Americans.
