Kanye West took to Twitter to solicit suggestions for the title of his upcoming album, on Saturday, April 28. The resurging rapper/producer pitched fans the opportunity to provide their input – in a tweet that he also used for an apparent unveiling of the project’s cover, which will bear the face of the man who performed surgery on Donda West on the eve of her death.
“This is my album cover. This is plastic surgeon Jan Adams. The person who performed my mom’s final surgery. Do you have any title ideas?” the message read. “I want to forgive and stop hating.”
It has been over 11 years since the passing of Mrs. West. An autopsy done on her body determined that the respected Chicago area scholar was overcome by a combination of coronary artery disease and various post-operative factors. Some have attributed the antics that Ye would become recognized for pulling in public over the years to his grievance over the loss.
His latest tweet would seem to suggest that the tentatively titled, Kids See Ghosts, may be themed around the rap great finding closure over that fateful day in November of 2007.
Since his controversial return to social media, many have been left with mixed emotions over the direction Kanye seems to be headed with his art. Fans will finally find out with the release of KSG on June 8.
