KANYE West’s fans are furious that he’s charging $200 for the Donda Stem Player – after delaying his album yet again.
The rapper, 44, has now pushed back the release of his 10th studio album to September 3, according to Apple Music.
Fans were already frustrated by the latest delay, considering Donda was meant to drop in July.
And irritation grew when listeners spotted just how expensive the Stem Player is – a device that allows fans to loop tracks, speed or slow down a recording, and isolate different instruments.
Fans flocked to Twitter to express their annoyance and brand the new Player a “scam”.
One raged: “OK @kanyewest you won, just scammed me out of $200 , now where Donda?”
Another posted: “Yesterday was a weird day in music. @kanyewest dropped a $200 IRL music player for his upcoming Donda album.”
A third fumed, “Kanye West is about to make an insane amount of money. The Donda Stem player costs $200,” alongside several shocked face emojis.
Kanye debuted Donda at a listening party on July 22 at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, before throwing a second bash at the same venue.
After failing to drop the album, the Yeezy mogul announced he will be holding a third listening party in his hometown of Chicago on August 26.
The event is taking place at Soldier Field, where Kanye is thought to have recreated his childhood home inside the stadium for fans.
Named after Kanye’s late mother, who died in 2007, Donda was slated to drop July 23, 2021 but has yet to arrive.
The rapper is notorious for dropping music on his own schedule and for repeatedly missing release dates.
Donda also marks Kanye’s first full-length album of new material since 2019’s Jesus Is King, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
The album comes several months after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February following six years of marriage.
Kanye made many references to his failed marriage and the loss of his family in the album.
The former couple share four kids together: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
Despite calling off their marriage, Kim has continued to support Kanye and attended both of Kanye’s listening events with their kids.
