Kanye West Claims His Music Label Released His Album Without His Permission

Kanye West Claims His Music Label Released His Album Without His Permission

Kanye West has boldly alleged his music label released his latest album without his permission.

Donda finally dropped over the weekend after multiple delays and fans were absolutely ecstatic.

While people all over the world were pumping the album's whopping 27 songs, it seems like the man of the hour isn't happy.

He's posted on Instagram: "Universal put my album out without my approval and they blocked 'Jail 2' from being on the album."

The artist explained in a series of now deleted posts that the second version of 'Jail', which features Marilyn Manson and DaBaby, wasn't being approved by the latter's manager.

Kanye was furious at the revelation and demanded DaBaby's verse be featured in the song.

Ye's manager, Bu Thiam said in a text message to the singer: "We won't be able to Upload unless we take him off."

However, West then said that he was 'not taking my brother off [the album]', adding: "He [DaBaby] was the only person who said he would vote for me in public.

"So the album is not coming out. God gotta bigger plan."

Donda dropped on August 29 and 'Jail 2' was greyed out on streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music and TIDAL.

However several hours later, the controversial track became available.

It's unclear whether Kanye's latest gripe with Universal will affect the album staying on streaming services, however now that 'Jail 2' is out it will at least calm him to know DaBaby is on the record.

West's 10th full-length studio album, which goes for nearly two hours, was meant to drop after the third listening party in Chicago.

Fans were stressed because no one from West's camp explained why there was another delay in the much-delayed project.

Many wondered whether Ye would wait one more week for the album to drop so that he could go head-to-head with his rival Drake, who is set to release Certified Lover Boy on September 3.

The pair have traded barbs lyrically for years, and things escalated again recently when West seemed to disclose Drake's home address in Toronto.

Following that, Drake released a video of himself driving around whilst laughing hysterically, which many have assumed was a response to West's posts that featured the swanky Toronto house.

Then, fans of Drake reportedly 'vandalised' West's childhood home in Chicago.

Three signs appeared outside of the property, one advertising Drake's new album Certified Lover Boy, another criticising Justin LaBoy, who has been promoting Donda.

The third reads '45 44 Burnt Out' which references a recent song by Drake in which he appeared to criticise West.

To be fair, as vandalism attempts go, it seems fairly tame.

The signs were just written on paper and stood up on the steps, so there's been no lasting damage.
