At this point, the entire world is more than likely aware of Kanye West‘s tenth studio LP DONDA, which originally came as a 27-track effort with features from everybody — Playboi Carti, Fivio Foreign, Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Shenseea, Jay-Z, Jay Electronica, Ty Dolla $ign, and the late Pop Smoke are only but a sampling of contributors. Months after its release, the man now known as simply “Ye” would upgrade DONDA with a deluxe edition that contained 32 songs, including the critically acclaimed leftover “Life of the Party” with Andre 3000.
Following visuals for “Come to Life” and “24,” fans can now check out a new clip for “Heaven and Hell,” which sees additional production from Andrew Dawson, Nabeyin, Ojivolta, Wallis Lane, BoogzDaBeast, and 88-Keys. Sampling 20th Century Steel Band’s 70’s hit “Heaven and Hell Is on Earth,” the thumping cut sees Ye rapping about DONDA‘s marketing direction, lack of trust in law enforcement, and (of course) his faith and religion, a topic heard throughout the entire album:
“No more promos, no more photos, no more logos, no more chokeholds, we on Bezos, we get payrolls, trips to Lagos, connect like LEGOs, make this final, make this, my eyes closed, burn false idols, Jesus’ disciples, I can feel your pain now, I done bled my vein out, new level the game now, simulation changed, no more problems, no more argue, no more askin’, ‘Who really arе you?'”
The video for “Heaven and Hell” was first premiered on ESPN during the NCAA football championship, and also functions as an advertisement for Ye’s Yeezy Gap collection. Viewers can see a number of individuals out at nighttime, walking around fully draped in all black attire. At some point, a masked man presumed to be Ye appears as a swath of individuals are spinning in the sky toward the heavens behind him.
