Kanye West is reportedly back in the studio to resume work on his much-anticipated Donda album.
Speaking to VladTV recently, West’s good friend and frequent collaborator Cyhi the Prynce revealed that the GOOD Music rapper took a break during the holidays before returning to the project. “We’re back working,” Cyhi said. “I think he started working on [Donda] late last year. I think around November, December, January comes around he kinda takes a hiatus—a vacation, break to get with the family.”
Donda was originally scheduled for a July 2020 release, but was postponed indefinitely. It was initially titled God’s Country before Ye announced that he had renamed the record after his late mother, Donda West, who died in 2007.
Last summer, Ye shared a snippet of the title track on Twitter before deleting it. “Mama, I need you to tuck me in / I done made some mistakes and they rubbed it in / I know you and grandma had enough of them / Why I gotta be so stubborn then,” he rapped in the preview.
In December 2020, Pusha T teased that West was producing the follow-up to his 2018 album DAYTONA, although no other details were confirmed.
Meanwhile, West has yet to respond to any of these claims.
