West’s follow-up to Jesus Is King, Donda is slated to drop on Friday, July 24.

Late Monday evening (July 24th), Kanye West unleashed a series of bizarre tweets attacking his wife Kim Kardashian, his mother-in-law Kris Jenner and countless others. The outlandish tweets followed his presidential rally in South Carolina

The public commentary was a glimpse into West’s headspace. His Twitter rant also addressed his forthcoming Gap deal, Bill Cosby, Shia LeBeouf and Anna Wintour. One tweet read, “Everybody knows the movie Get Out is about me.” 

Another read: “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday.” All of the tweets from Monday night have been deleted. 

Following the tweets, fans took to Twitter to express their concern for the rapper. #PrayForYe is currently trending in the U.S. Evette Dione, editor in chief of Bitch Media shared the following on the debacle:

“Kanye West is unwell. This is the saddest mess I’ve seen in a long time, and we’re all engaging in the spectacle. I hope he gets the care he needs, and that he learns he doesn’t need to break down in public or misuse Harriet Tubman’s legacy for people to hear him and help him.”

A plethora of social media users and fans also expressed their candid thoughts on Kanye’s rant on Twitter. Many expressed concern for his mental health and wellbeing.

On Tuesday, Kanye West tweeted a video where he was standing alongside friend Dave Chappelle. In the post, Kanye said that Dave, a “true friend,” flew out to visit him. In the video, Kanye asked Dave to say something that would “make us smile.”

Dave responded by saying, “Brotherhood is real. Love is real. Kanye said, “Wait a second, I said a smile, bro.”

Unsurprisingly, West is also gearing up to release a new album, Donda, and has announced that it will drop on Friday, July 24. The 12-track playlist was shared today by the rapper on Twitter. The album was previously alleged to be titled God’s Country.

On the newly released Donda tracklist, “Wash Us in the Blood” doesn’t appear. This track arrived in June and featured Travis Scott with mixing from Dr. Dre according to Rolling Stone. We previously reported Arthur Jafa announced he was directing a video for the song. “Donda” another song which features West’s late mother is on the tracklist. 

“New Body” an additional song that was reportedly slated for West’s Jesus Is King album is also on the tracklist. Nicki Minaj allegedly had a guest verse on one version. But, that version was cut “over creative differences,” per Pitchfork

Take a look at the official tracklist below.
