Kanye West is reportedly working on 'Donda 2'
Steven Victor, chief operating officer of G.O.O.D. Music, said Ye is already in the process of working on a Donda sequel.
Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, has started creating Donda 2, according to Steven Victor, the chief operating officer of G.O.O.D. Music. “Ye has started working on his new masterpiece DONDA 2,” Victor told Complex.
If Donda 2 remains the project’s official title, it will become Ye’s first sequel LP in the Chicago rapper’s discography.
The “All of the Lights” emcee released Donda back in August. The LP featured guest appearances by JAY-Z, The LOX, Lil Baby, Fivio Foreign, The 27-track project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart after moving 309,000 equivalent album units in its first week. With this debut, Ye tied Eminem for the most consecutive No. 1 debuts on the Billboard 200 chart.
Donda also became Spotify’s second-biggest album debut of all time, garnering almost 100 million streams. Although Ye’s 10th studio album saw much success, it also came with some controversy.
Following Donda’s release, Soulja Boy and Chris Brown took to social media to express their frustrations with their vocals being removed. Breezy posted, “Kanye a whole hoe” on his Instagram Story back in August. He later added, “Nah he tweakin,” for removing his vocals from “New Again.”
Big Draco posted screenshots of his text message conversations where Ye praised his verse. However, the official version of “Remote Control” did not feature Soulja. “If he didn’t like the verse he should of said that don’t text me acting like u fuck wit it then secretly take it off,” the “Crank That” rapper previously wrote. “What kind of shit is that? I was working on my album too. I don’t got time for this shit.”
Soulja and Ye were able to squash their beef after the Yeezy creator said the “Donk” spitter was one of the top five most influential artists on REVOLT’s “Drink Champs” podcast.
