Kanye West's 9 million Twitter followers hadn't heard a peep out of the 35-year-old rapper since he deleted all of his posts back in October, except one that said "BE BACK SOON."
But West finally returned to the social networking service on Thursday with the mysterious tweet: "June Eighteen."
So what could the man behind "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," his last solo studio album, have up his sleeves? While some speculate that the post refers to the drop date of West's next album, others think he might be referring to the due date of his baby with Kim Kardashian.
Entertainment Weekly's Ray Rahman thinks its the former. He points to a New York radio DJ who said that Island Def Jam execs had just heard West's new album.
“Everyone at the label that listened to the album loved it,” Rosenberg said. “I’ve heard it’s dark, but it’s really good.”
But The New York Post thinks that Kardashian could have misled the media about her baby's due date. Sources told the paper that Kardashian actually expects her baby to be born earlier than July, which is the date she gave to the "Today" show back in January.
