Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ Film Poster [UPDATE]

UPDATE: A rep from from Def Jam has confirmed that the poster is a fake.

In late 2012, artwork for Kanye West‘s purported album Black American Psycho emerged, and while it turned out to be bogus, it certainly seems to have foreshadowed this era of Ye’s aesthetic. To promote Yeezus, West linked up with American Psycho author Bret

Kanye West and Future linked up on “I Won,” the ode to their famous significant others on Honest. So everyone expected the Hype Williams-directed video to at least feature cameos from their respective fiancées, Kim Kardashian and Ciara. Unfortunately, they’re nowhere to be found, with some writhing, side-boob-flaunting swimsuit models serving as stand-ins. Maybe the scheduling didn’t…
