Kanye West’s “Donda” album is finally available on streaming outlets, after being delayed three times over the last month. This is definitely a star-studded project, with it containing 26 tracks, and appearances from Jay Z, Lil Baby, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, The Lox, Pop Smoke, and more.
At the Chicago listening event for Donda a few days ago, Ye stirred some controversy, as DaBaby appeared to have replaced Jay Z on the song “Jail.” This is all as DaBaby’s been getting cancelled, for anti HIV/AIDS comments made at Rolling Loud last month, along with gay men in general.
Jay ended up appearing on the final version of Jail, and it appears that DaBaby’s manager wouldn’t clear the Charlotte rapper’s verse, and that’s why Donda got delayed again. This is seen, in text messages that Ye posted with his own manager, Bu Thiam, to Instagram, this morning.
Bu ended up saying that DaBaby’s manager wouldn’t answer his phone either. Ye didn’t want to take DaBaby off the song, since he’s who supposedly voted for Ye in the 2020 presidential election. Ye went on to text DaBaby about this situation, and Baby claimed how he didn’t know this clearance issue was happening.
Check out the text messages between Kanye and Bu and then, DaBaby, below.
