At his most recent event, West brought out Marilyn Manson and DaBaby. (DaBaby was recently pulled from festivals after making homophobic comments; Manson is being sued for multiple sexual assault cases.) Manson is credited on the album released on “Jail,” under his real name Brian Warner. DaBaby is supposed to be on a track titled “Jail Pt. 2” (which appears on some streaming services as unavailable) but West posted photos of a string of text threads indicating that DaBaby’s manager would not delete the verse of the rapper. Chris Brown also has writing credit on “New Again”.
Our first exhibition at Donda was at a listening party in late July that West hosted at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. However, no completed album appeared, and a few weeks later a second night of listening took place at the same stadium, and West had a new version of the album in tow. But still – no Donda! For each listen, West made changes and additions to the album.
As this extended deployment continues, West has been busy reinforcing Drake, going so far as to briefly send out his home address. (New Drake album Boy in love certified Rumor has it that it will be released next week, which could explain why West finally released. Donda.) He also started a $ 200 rod player and filed a petition to legally change his name to Ye. It is also reported that West and Kim Kardashian West’s divorce is not finalized and that they are working on their relationship which makes sense since the last one. Donda the listening evening ended with a fake wedding.
Anyway, here it is: Donda. Stream below.
Donda is out now.
