No, Kanye West‘s Jesus Is King still isn’t out, after it was reported that it would release on Sept. 27. In fact, it’s difficult to know if (and when) it will ever arrive.

TMZ reports Ye is constantly tweaking the final product, his ninth full-length album, which is said to be complete and ready for release. The Chicago-raised artist has virtually delayed the album into an uncertain status.
Kim Kardashian West announced Jesus Is King on social media in August. She provided an update, saying the highly-anticipated project would drop on Sunday, Sept. 29, after “a few final tweaks.” There’s also a notion that this album will be West’s entre into permanence as a gospel artist.
Kanye also announced that he is no longer making secular music. Only Gospel from here on out.— Andrew Barber (@fakeshoredrive) September 29, 2019
West held recent events in Michigan and New York in which fans were blessed with snippets of the album, a short doc of recent housing and architecture projects, and an extended preview of his upcoming IMAX film focused around his “Sunday Service.”
Even so, the one thing West’s fans actually asked for is still missing, leading memes to flow in.
Fans used memes of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker while crying and putting on his clown makeup, a drunken Barney surrounded by empty beer bottles, and Wagner Moura’s Pablo Escobar staring blankly into space to express their sadness and disappointment.
