American rapper & songwriter, Kanye West has said that his album Donda was released by Label Without His Approval. Check out the post below.
After a few hours of the release of his album on all streaming platforms, He shared the written post via Instagram and said that “Universal put my album out without my approval and they blocked Jail 2 from being on the album.”
According to the Pitchfork reports, Manson is credited as a composer and lyricist on “Jail,” while both Manson and DaBaby appear on “Jail, Pt. 2.” That song was not officially available upon Donda’s initial release, but it eventually made its way onto the album.
Earlier today, West posted a pair of photos on Instagram (viewed by Pitchfork) showing text threads that claimed that DaBaby’s manager was not clearing the Charlotte rapper’s verse for “Jail.” Arnold Taylor—the founder and president of South Coast Music Group, the label to which DaBaby is signed—disputed West’s claim.
The LP was released after the rapper’s third listening party—a Chicago event that controversially featured appearances from Marilyn Manson and DaBaby.
