Until 'Donda 2' Is Complete, Kanye West Is Giving Up His Phone
Kanye West has provided fans with insight into how he stays laser focused until Donda 2 releases on Feb. 22.
In a video posted on Friday night, Rolling Loud co-founder Tariq Cherif posted on Kanye's behalf, which showed the rapper taking a break from recording his upcoming album. As Ye got a massage, he revealed that he'd given up his phone until Donda 2 was completed.
“I don’t have a phone until two, twenty-two, twenty-two,” he said. “My focus is taking my kids to school and finishing the album.”
In a new interview this week with Rolling Stone, Digital Nas, who produced “Junya” and “Remote Control” (as well as a “Part 2” for each) on Donda, opened up about Ye’s first sequel album.
“These are the directives for the album: ‘If it cannot be played at a funeral, childbirth, graduation, a wedding, it will not be on our record,’” Nas told the magazine. “We learned a lot from Donda 1. We learned what hit. We learned what was sticking. So we took from there. It has to be able to be played at four major moments in people’s lives. That’s crazy, right?”
A track Ye recorded with the album's executive producer, Future, is among the tracks Digital Nas expects fans to enjoy.
“That’s just phenomenal,” Nas revealed, adding that you can expect Travis Scott to show up on the album, too. “Travis Scott pulled up and played beats for Ye,” he said.
