Kanye West‘s reaction to the leaked ‘Donda’ documentary is still unclear
Kanye West is celebrating his birthday without much fanfare; coincidentally, some footage of his Donda documentary leaked online on the same day.
The never-seen-footage provide insights into Ye’s unconventional approach to music making.The five-minute clip shows the polarising rap star stretching his creativity boundaries by shifting to Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium for a dual purpose: to live and make music.
The 45-year-old held two out of three listening parties of his tenth studio album in the stadium.
Scores of A-list hip-hop stars collaborated with the 46-year-old in his makeshift recording studio, including Pusha T, Playboi Carti, Fivio Foreign, Rick Rubin, and Mike Dean, as per HipHopDx.
In one head-spinning scene, the Life Of Pablo hitmaker threatened on a phone call that whoever didn’t attend his album listening party will be cut from the album, including JAY-Z.
“Everybody that’s not here, I’m taking their verses off,” the Chicago rap mogul continued. “I’m taking JAY-Z verse, I’m taking — if there’s anybody not here on the porch with me, they’re not on this version.”Earlier, Kanye West reunited with his old pal Ice Cube after both had a fallout over the former claim that the latter influence had put him on the anti-Semitic path.
The two giants were spotted exchanging pleasantries via hugs and smile outside the Cube’s house in Marina Del Rey, Calif.
The reunion comes on the heels of an apparent icy relationship between the pair when seven months ago, the Grammy winner blamed Cube for his anti-Semitic controversy.
Last October, on the Drink Champs podcast, the polarising rap star claimed that the It Was A Good Day rapper had “really influenced” him to “get on this anti-Semite vibe.”
