“Donda” Disaster: Kanye Claims Universal Music Dropped Album Without Permission

Home business “Donda” Disaster: Kanye Claims Universal Music Dropped Album Without Permission

Kanye West took to Instagram this afternoon and claimed Universal Music dropped his “Donda” album without permission.

Good for them. You could hear Lucian Grainge say “Enough with the mishegos.”

Also, on Thursday night Universal is dropping Drake’s new album. They have to keep the trains running on schedule.

Who knows what beef Kanye has now? He also says they didn’t release a track called “Jail 2.” So he’ll have a bonus track up his sleeve. With 27 tracks on “Donda,” no one will miss it.

Kanye is not finding sympathy for the fans. Three delays for “Donda” was enough. The fans wanted it. He’s lucky he has fans at this point. And only someone with a number 1 would complain. Plus, considering he’s been hawking a $200 listening device for the album, I think he knew it was coming sooner rather than later.
