Kanye is just Kanye’ing with “Donda”

With countless listening sessions, bizarre antics such as living in sports stadiums, a split & reunion with Kim Kardashian, a guessing game with who or what will be the album features, and endless release dates being pushed back in rumored competition with fellow musical superstar Drake, Kanye West FINALLY drops ‘Donda’ on the Sunday of August 29th, 2021 in the early hours of the morning. It was to a point many fans were wondering more “Donde” then ‘Donda‘ for quite possibly the most bizarre album rollout in modern times. People would call them crazy for any other artist, but for Kanye, they call him Kanye West.

‘Donda’ is Kanye’s tenth studio album and is dedicated to the legacy of his long-deceased mother, Donda West. Composed of twenty-seven tracks and nearly two hours of playtime at an official one hour and forty-nine minutes, Kanye pulls out all the tricks in his bag to make this project special. The Christian theme is present as in Ye’s previous album, but this time he enlists a bevy of more features and production help from an assortment of notable names.
