After a year of anticipation, Kanye West released his tenth studio album “DONDA” yesterday. With collaborators of the caliber of JAY-Z, Travis Scott, Playboi Carti or Pusha T, Ye’ blessed his community with a project of almost two hours long, composed of a total of 26 songs. Although all that glittered here was not gold.
The artist is once again drawing controversy into his orbit, as he did at his third listening event in Chicago alongside Kim Kardashian and stardom sex offender Marilyn Manson. Now, after releasing the album in honor of his late mother Donda West, which can be listened to through the tracks, it seems Kanye is not happy with the way it’s been released.
Ye shared a post on Instagram in which he commented that his distribution label UMG Recordings had released the album without his approval, blocking the appearance of “Jail Pt 2” featuring Dababy, Francis and the Lights, and Marilyn Manson on the project.
And that’s because, hours before the drop, DaBaby and his team had not cleared his verse on “Jail Pt 2.” In response to screenshots of a text conversation posted by Kanye, Arnold Taylor, the founder of South Coast Music Group, the record label DaBaby is signed to under Interscope Records, clarified the matter and noted that the verse had finally been approved. “Jail Pt 2” is now part of DONDA on streaming platforms.
