West recently turned Twitter into a guessing game when he posted a cryptic tweet June Eighteen he wrote. The date could refer to the day his and pregnant Kim Kardashian's baby is due or possibly the day West releases a new album.

West's tweet about the projections is the only one on his account he recently deleted the cryptic tweet we mentioned earlier and the others last fall.Kanye West's String of Tweets
