In New 'Donda 2' Song, Kanye Says "I Stopped Buying Louis Bags After Virgil Passed Away"
Kanye West gave a preview of his forthcoming 'Donda 2' album at Miami's LoanDepot Park on Tuesday night.
Ye performed a song during the event that he dedicated to his deceased friend and collaborator Virgil Abloh. “I stopped buying Louis bags after Virgil passed,” Ye rapped on the song. “We ain’t doin’ business, it won’t be no business.”
A private battle with cancer claimed the life of the designer and artistic director of Louis Vuitton's menswear collection last November. He was 41 years old.

Virgil and Ye worked on several projects together and both interned at Fendi in 2009. Additionally, Off-White founder and designer worked on the covers for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Yeezus.
According to Quavo's Instagram story, Ye performed a track titled "Louis Bag," which featured Jack Harlow. The song also featured a clip of Vice President Kamala Harris.
Last week, Kanye praised the “Nail Tech” rapper, writing, "This n***a can rap bro, I'm saying that as a compliment Top 5 coming out." Harlow responded and said it was "one of the greatest moments of my entire life." He continued, "glad y'all get front row seats to this...imagine your hero saying this about you...I could cry."
Also performing at the event were Pusha-T, Alicia Keys, Fivio Foreign, Playboi Carti, and others.
