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?

Diddy Reveals Release Date for “Off The Grid” Album

Diddy Off The Grid vol. 1 via Instagram

Love has got to be in the air of Hip-Hop culture.

While the anticipation for Drake’s Certified Lover Boy album is in high demand, fans can also gear up for Diddy’s new project Off The Grid Vol. 1.

Based on what the Harlem music icon said in a tweet, this project, which is set for the Fall season, will also be a love-inspired body of work. 

On Wednesday (July 21), Diddy said on Twitter, “OFF THE GRID. The Album. September 24, 2021. Welcome to the LOVE ERA!”

Fans got a hint that the CEO of Bad Boy Records was cooking something up last week when Billboard reported his hiring of Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, who manages The Weeknd and Doja Cat. Slaiby also manages Ty Dolla $ign, French Montana.

Off The Grid Vol. 1 will be Puffy’s first music project n 2015 with the release of his mixtape MMM (Money Making Mitch). However, this is his first studio album since he released Press Play in 2006.

Who knows how Diddy is planning to present this album to his fans, but if we know P. Diddy, he’s going to do it in a major way. 

Off The Grid Vol. 1, September 24, be ready for the love vibes.

DONDA

Tonight DONDA arrives and now it’s officially Yeezy season!

Since the hype of DONDA, Kanye West has had fans in a frenzy. After back-to-back listening parties in Las Vegas and Atlanta respectively, the anticipation has increased as we now have an official release date for the Chicago rapper’s 10th album.  

DONDA will be out this Friday, July 23. Def Jam confirmed the news on Twitter.

During game six of the NBA Finals between the Bucks and the Suns, the G.O.O.D Music CEO directed Beats By Dre commercial featuring Sha’Carri Richardson, in which he premiered a new song from the album, “No Child Left Behind.”

All weekend Ye has been previewing DONDA, and so far, with the exception of Meek Mill, he’s been getting a lot of praise for the project. Social media influencer Justin LaBoy has already proclaimed it as “album of the year.”

This album will be composed with major artists such as Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Post Malone, and Pusha T.

Fans who will be attending Rolling Loud will get first dips at seeing the music and fashion mogul live as he is set to perform as a surprised guest at the music festival. 

Gear up Ye fans because it’s that time. The count down for DONDA has arrived.

New Music,“Pink Tape” from Lil Uzi Could Be On the Way

lil uzi vert pink tape

Last week images of Lil Uzi surfaced with him in his new hair color, pink. Well, it seems as if the hair color will correspond with his new potential project. The Pink Tape

Yesterday, Baby Pluto went to Twitter and simply tweeted, “Pink Tape.”

The Pink Tape was announced by Lil Uzi Vert in December 2020, during a two-hour Instagram Live, where he revealed that he was going to drop a mixtape exclusively on SoundCloud. He announced the title in an IG post on July 16th, 2021. It will include old Uzi songs, personally requested by fans.

We also recall earlier this year when Lil Uzi played a snippet of a new collaboration he has with Travis Scott in a fan’s ear. There is no timetable on when the Pink Tape drops, but if we know the Philadelphia rapper, then we know the new project will be out of this planet.

Are you ready to get new music from Uzi?

Kanye West DONDA

New music from Kanye West appears to be on the way.

 On July 18, the music and fashion mogul played unreleased music from his forthcoming DONDA album for Kevin Durant and social media influencer, Justin Laboy

Justin went to Twitter to let the world know that Ye’s new music is fire and suggest that any rapper who plans on dropping around the same time as Ye should reconsider. 

Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas,” he tweeted. “Man listen! The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back #Respectfully.”

He also declared that DONDA will be the album of the year. He said don’t at him either. 

Kanye West also linked with Tyler The Creator and Consequence and did the same thing, only this time he revealed the possible tracklist for DONDA.

Consequence shared a video via Twitter.

In the video, on a white dry erase board we could see 10-11 tracks, which we assume to be the tracklists. 

Do you think new music from Kanye West will solidify the Yeezy Era?

Unreleased ASAP Rocky Song Previewed In New PacSun Ad

ASAP Rocky Reportedly Charged With Criminal Assault

As of late, ASAP Rocky has been in his bag. The Harlem rapper just collaborated with the shoe company Vans, and now has a new partnership with PacSun.

Now we can expect new music from Flocka as PacSun released a new video ad featuring unreleased music from ASAP Rocky

On July 8, PacSun named Rocky the first-ever guest artistic director for them. In a statement released on Thursday, Rocky spoke on the partnership. 

“This partnership is special to me because it’s a collaboration that combines my roots, A$AP Worldwide, and some of the most respected heritage brands that have roots in both the sportswear and lifestyle worlds,” he said. “Together with PacSun, we will be releasing several limited-edition collections that are both nostalgic and forward at the same time.”

ASAP Rocky killed two birds with one stone with the PacSun campaign because it also displays the Vans capsule collection.

It’s been all win and power moves for the leading member of the A$AP Mob. He has his beautiful queen Rihanna, next to him, he’s doing fashion collabs, and now we’re getting to the music. He announced in May that his forthcoming album, All Smiles was 90 percent completed. Rocky will also be headlining Governors Ball 2021 taking place in September, in New York City.

Pop Smoke’s “Faith” Album is Loaded with Hip Hop’s All-Stars

Pop Smoke Faith

Pop Smoke’s second posthumous album, Faith, dropped at midnight and it’s loaded with star power. 

The last album by the Brooklyn drill rapper, Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, which dropped in 2020, is currently the No.1 Hip-Hop album of 2021. His new album Faith will be looking to reach the same success.

The 20 track album features some of Hip-Hop’s all-stars like, Rick Ross, The Dream, 21 Savage, Quavo, Future, 42 Dugg, Lil Tjay, Swae Lee, Takeoff, Chris Brown, Pharrell, Kid Cudi, Kodak Black, and multiple collaborations with Pusha-T. 

Kid Cudi, who’s on track 18, “8 Ball,” has expressed extreme joy about the project. He tweeted, “Really excited for yall to hear this Pop Smoke record.”

According to MRC Data, formerly known as Nielsen Music, with the equivalent of 948,000 sales in the U.S. this year, Pop Smoke’s Shoot for the Stars is the most popular album in Hip-Hop of 2021. Across all of music, the album is the fourth-most-consumed album, after records by Justin Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo and Morgan Wallen, MRC Data says.

Do you think the features on Pop Smoke’s Faith will help carry the project into Platnimun status? Check it out below and leave your thoughts.
