Kanye West “DONDA” Still Not Out Despite Todays Release Date

DONDA

When Kanye West announced that his album DONDA would be released today, Friday, July 23, fans instantly anticipated his new music.

Unfortunately, after back-to-back listening parties, numerous praises for the project, and a few last-minute feature additions, DONDA is still incomplete. This is a fact because the album isn’t out yet, despite the reported release date. West has yet to address why DONDA failed to drop at midnight.

Yesterday the Chicago rapper filled Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium for his second listening party for Donda.

During the Donda show, which is named after West’s late mother, Ye played several tracks with features from some of the biggest names in rap music.

Fans were even able to live-stream the event on Apple Music.

The last track Kanye played featured a verse from Jay-Z. Hov’s verse nearly broke the internet with a bar from his verse. Jay-Z raps: “This might be the return of the throne Throne/ Hova and Yeezus/ Like Moses and Jesus/ You’re not in control of my thesis.”

We all know Kanye is a perfectionist, so the fact that he wants to put out a perfect project is expected from the music and fashion mogul. But fans are still upset that the album isn’t here today.

Fans took it to Twitter to express their frustration.

Do you think we’ll get Kanye West highly anticipated release DONDA before the day is over?

Keyshia Cole Breaks Silence Following Loss of Mother

Frankie Lons, Mother of Keyshia Cole, Reportedly Passes Away

Our hearts and prayers go out to the loved ones of Frankie Lons after it was reported this past week that she passed away on her 61st birthday. The news was officially confirmed after members of Frankie’s family announced her passing on social media.

“WORSE PAIN EVER …. TO SEE MY MAMA IN A BODY BAG ON HER BIRTHDAY! MY HEART SO FUCKIN BROKE,” wrote Keyshia’s sister Elite.

“Damn grandma Frankie. The call I just got on your birthday. I was finna come see you this week I just talked to you. Happy birthday beautiful and rest in heaven,” wrote Frankie’s granddaughter, Zayya.

The world was introduced to Frankie Lons back in the early 2000s once Keyshia Cole and her family began to do more reality TV. Over the years Frankie has been very transparent with her struggles with substance abuse and addiction, hoping to help others in similar scenarios.

Keyshia Cole has also been very candid about her mom’s struggle with addiction in the past. In 2018 the singer gave an update on her mom to her followers. “This was 2 1/2 years ago. Every time my mom relapse, it breaks my heart more than it’s already been broken,” the singer began.

“I’m hoping, if any of u are dealing with a family member who’s battling with drug addiction, that you, yourself are learning how to cope with the struggle of it all. And all the pain it brings to see a loved one constantly relapsing. See them go back to the streets Because that’s what they’re used to, or would rather be. I really miss you! And will always love u.”

Since the news was released that Frankie Lons passed away fans were concerned about the well-being of her loved ones including Keyshia Cole. As of today, Cole broke her silence in a post to social media. Check out the post below as we continue to send our love and deepest condolences to the Lons family.

LouvretoOffer MinuteTourBasedonTheCarters'Apesh*t'

A mansion in New Orleans reportedly owned by Beyoncé and JAY-Z caught on fire Wednesday night. The three-story home was said to have burned for two hours before 22 firefighters put out the fire.

NOLA.com reports a one-alarm fire was called into fire personnel around 6:15 p.m. when the residential fire alarm went off.

“If they didn’t get there when they did, it could have been much worse,” a spokesperson for the New Orleans Fire Department said. “It’s a historic home.”

There were no injuries at the home and no details if someone was present at the time. The home is a 1920s Spanish baroque mansion purchased by a company, Sugarcane Park LLC, managed by Tina Lawson. The company’s mailing address is the same as Parkwood Entertainment’s.

Unreleased 2Pac Diss Track By Nas Surfaces Online

nas

While he isn’t engulfed in beef and diss tracks today and is much more of a businessman, Nas has had his fair share in the past. One of his early foes was 2Pac and an unreleased song, “Real Niggas” has hit the Internet.

According to Complex, the song was recorded during the It Was Written era of Nas’s career and puts a target squarely on the late Death Row Records legend.

“From tube socks in Timbs to blue rocks and Benz/Who got the ends, the type of nigga 2Pac pretends/To all niggas who shine, guess who got revenge/I won’t showboat, my flow choke you,” Nas raps.

In another segment, Nas raps “And if it don’t the .44 will smoke you, left ya seed reminiscing on ya/Emcees, I’m pissing on ya/Shine because my chips are longer.”

You can hear it below.

Lil Nas X Releases “Industry Baby” Featuring Jack Harlow

Lil Nas X Releases "Industry Baby" Featuring Jack Harlow

After a stellar promo, Lil Nas X has released his new single “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow. The new single is produced by Take a Daytrip and Kanye West.

In the previous video, Lil Nas X was sentenced to Montero State Prison and now we see what happens upon his storyline imprisonment. The single highlights Nas X finding his confidence and targets proving anyone wrong. The video was directed by Christian Breslauer and highlights Nas moving through prison and eventually breaks free of prison with the help of Jack Harlow.

Dear 20 year old Montero,

I wrote a song for us. I know sometimes you feel like it’s all downhill from here. I know your sexuality has made you feel like an outcast amongst your peers. I know going from having the biggest song in the world to being trapped in your apartment is weighing heavy on you. And I know if you hear the phrase ‘one hit wonder’ one more time you might combust. But I need you to keep going. I need you to realize that you have the opportunity to be the person that you needed growing up. I need you to stop feeling sorry for yourself. And I need you to remember that the only person who has to believe in YOU is YOU.”

In addition to the release, Lil Nas X has announced partnering with The Bail Project, a national nonprofit organization on a mission to end cash bail, one of the key drivers of mass incarceration and structural racism in the U.S. criminal legal system. Through the “Bail X Fund,” he hopes to encourage other artists to join him and The Bail Project in the fight to end cash bail. Lil Nas X himself has made a starting donation, Jack Harlow is jumping in to help as well, and fans are invited to donate with them. All donations go directly into The Bail Project’s national revolving bail fund to pay people’s bails.
