According to Kanye West (44) record label Universal released his album ‘Donda’ without his permission. Universal also allegedly kept the song ‘Jail pt 2’ with DaBaby off the record without his knowledge. The rapper announced this via Instagram a few hours after the release on Sunday.
Donda , named after West’s late mother, hit the streaming services on Sunday after multiple delays. The first hours were without the song ‘Jail pt 2’. West posted on Instagram that it was because DaBaby’s team had not yet agreed, but that post was later removed and the track reappeared.
During the third listening session for the album last Thursday, it turned out that it was no longer Jay-Z, but now DaBaby could be heard on the song Jail. That was a controversial choice, as DaBaby recently came under fire for expressing himself homophobic during a performance. On the album that came out on Sunday, the version with Jay-Z could be heard again, but later the version by Jail on which DaBaby collaborated was also released.
Donda is West’s tenth studio album and the follow-up to the 2019 gospel album Jesus Is King .
