Kanye West and Dr. Dre’s star-studded record Jesus Is King 2 has fallen victim to a leak.

The jam-packed follow-up to West’s 2019 gospel LP has features from Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott and Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Anderson .Paak, A$AP Ferg and Marsha Ambrosius. However, it’s largely made up of reworkings and remixes of the original songs, with West — who legally changed his name to Ye — adding a few verses.

Announcing the project on Twitter — before it became X — the “Jesus Walks” rapper wrote: “Jesus Is King is my first clean album. I used to spend all my time trying to make my beats be mixed as good as Dr. Dre. Who knew all I had to do was do an album for God and then Dr. Dre would start mixing my beats? Spend your time on God, and he’ll handle the rest.”

In October, it was reported that Def Jam had parted ways with the rapper and that his imprint G.O.O.D. Music was no longer associated with the label.

The “Good Morning” rapper lost his deal with adidas, was dropped by agents CAA, and had the likes of Balenciaga and Vogue magazine distance themselves from him due to a string of antisemitic comments he made last year, including praising the “good things” about Adolf Hitler and declaring he wanted to go “death con [sic] 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.”
