Kanye West’s career has reached a weird point where hoaxes in his name are difficult to rule out, so a new, cryptic website bearing his moniker is mighty intriguing – even if it has been shot down by his own representatives.
Today, MTV’s office received a package containing a VHS tape with the label “E Pluribus Unum”, a rock in a small plastic case, and a bank card bearing the text “NASA“, “Project-10”, “Kanye West”, “8/10”, and “772233688”.
The rock didn’t do much of anything, outside of being a rock. The tape played two hours of meaningless static. However, that longer number did lead to a website containing a video of more static, and the date March 20. In case you don’t have a calendar handy and are unaware of today’s date, March 20 is this Monday.

MTV posited that, based on the evidence, it could actually be related to Young Thug’s track Kanye West. A postmark found on the parcel traced it back to Atlanta, Thugger’s stomping ground, and there hasn’t been a video for the tune. Yet.
Seriously, if Kanye didn’t send me a space rock who DID send me a space rock and a prop from The Ring: Election Year https://t.co/AeJLsbdyGb

As for where that leaves us: come Monday, we’re either going to be treated to absolutely nothing, a new Young Thug clip, a double-surprise new Yeezy record, or we’re going to watch a livestream of him being shot to the moon.
