A rumor is circling the internet that Kanye West is releasing a new album called Graduation 2 – but no one knows if it’s true.
The news emerged on TikTok this week, where a verified account with the name ‘Ye’ shared a supposed announcement video.
Kanye West ‘Graduation 2’ rumor
The TikTok profile has the handle @user1947483752 and shared a montage captioned “Graduation 2” on Monday (September 11).
It contains a series of high-quality clips from Kanye West’s Donda concerts and is captioned “6/10” – which many think is the release date October 6.
The video is set to the track Broken Road by Yhandi. The same account also posted a clip of Kanye singing at Travis Scott’s Utopia concert.
Some are saying it’s Ye posting on a private account, while others think the whole thing is a fake hoax. Either way, it’s sending fans crazy.
Fans are going wild
One person wrote on Twitter: “KANYE JUST ANNOUNCED GRADUATION 2.”
“Omg Kanye is releasing a new album?” squealed another.
A third fan added: “KANYE WEST JUST POSTED THIS VIDEO TO TIKTOK ANNOUNCING GRADUATION 2.”
However, many are convinced it’s not Kanye, with another saying: “People will really believe anything”.
“This isn’t the real Kanye guys,” someone else said.
When writing this, the 46-year-old hasn’t shared anything about a new album on his official social media profiles.
Ye is currently vacationing in Europe with his new wife Bianca Censori. They have been spotted in Tuscany, Florence and Venice in recent weeks.
Graduation was his third album
Graduation was the rapper’s third studio album , released on September 11, 2007, through Def Jam Recordings and Roc-A-Fella Records.
The 14-track album contains the hit songs Can’t Tell Me Nothing, Stronger, Homecoming and Good Life and shot to number one on the US Billboard 200.
It has features from some huge artists including Dwele, T-pain, Lil Wayne, Mos Def, DJ Premier and Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
Could a part two really be coming 16 years later? We’ll have to wait and see…
