Kanye West honours his late mother in new video for ‘Donda Chant’

Kanye West has released a video for the song “Donda Chant,” which is the first single from his tenth studio album, “DONDA.”

The video was shot at the third and final listening party for ‘DONDA’ before its release, which took place on August 26 at Chicago’s Soldier Field stadium and was released to West’s Instagram page yesterday night (September 18). It begins with an aerial image of the stadium’s centerpiece, a facsimile of West’s childhood home, with monochromatic photos of his late mother Donda projected onto it.

Take a look at the following video:

The third visual accompaniment West has given for ‘DONDA’ is a new trailer for ‘Donda Chant,’ which features a spoken-word introduction by singer-songwriter Syleena Johnson. A video for ‘24′ was published earlier this week, after the release of a video for ‘Come To Life,’ directed by Kanye West, at the beginning of the month.

After more than a year of delays, GOOD Music / Def Jam finally released ‘DONDA’ on August 29. “At one hour and 44 minutes, ‘DONDA’ is tremendously – and unnecessarily – long,” writer Rhian Daly said in NME when the album was released.

“No artist in the world, including Kanye, is capable of creating a faultless record that lasts over two hours. There are plenty of potential fantastic ideas here, as well as some legitimately great tunes, but if he had spent a little more time editing things, this might have been a masterpiece — focused, tragic, and powerful.”

‘DONDA’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, making West one of just seven artists in the chart’s 65-year history to have ten Number One albums. However, the streak came to an end when Drake’s new album, “Certified Lover Boy,” debuted at number one.

Producer Mike Dean recently spoke about his time on ‘DONDA,’ describing the situation as “grueling.” Todd Rundgren also spoke up about his contributions to the record, stating he was “frustrated” after submitting “three albums worth of stems” without receiving much input from West.

Dr. Dre Receives Divorce Papers At Grandmother’s Funeral

Dr. Dre, the hip hop artist and super producer extraordinaire, was recently issued with divorce papers during the burial of his grandmother. This comes after a long period of conflict with his estranged ex-wife Nicole Young. Young filed for divorce from Dre in 2020 after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The extra 1.2 million Dr. Dre is ordered by the judge to pay to cover Young’s legal bills is the subject of the most current set of divorce proceedings being filed. While both sides allege different versions of events, it is true that Dr. Dre was present at his grandmother’s funeral or was served with the papers by a process server immediately afterward.

Dre claims he was approached while standing at the coffin of his grandmother, who he believes played a significant part in his upbringing. Dre was served in the parking lot after the funeral ceremony, according to Young’s attorneys.

 

Dre was hospitalized earlier this year after suffering a brain aneurysm. Dre’s home was targeted for a break-in while he was recovering from his brain injury. Dr. Dre is having a particularly difficult year in 2021 as a result of all of these occurrences, as well as his continuing divorce.

Dre released a clip of a song earlier this year after his recuperation from the brain aneurysm, which included words like “(Bitch) Trying to kill me with them lies and that perjury,” which alluded to both his disability and the pending divorce. Needless to say, this is not a painless divorce. Dre, along with longtime partner Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, will headline the Super Bowl halftime concert next year. By then, the divorce proceedings should be in the rearview mirror. Quit

Big Sean Goes Off In Freestyle Over Jay-Z, Drake & Kanye West Beats

Big Sean stopped by Power 106 in Los Angeles to show off his lyrical prowess in a new L.A. Leakers freestyle.

The Def Jam rapper rapped for nearly nine minutes, delivering a bar Big Sean kicked things off by spitting on Jay-“Dear Z’s Summer,” setting the tone quickly a decade after his last freestyle for the L.A. Leakers.

“I’ve given up wishing for the best and am now insisting on results/ If good karma doesn’t land on it first, I deal with it. Relentless how I give it all but never give in/ Just like NBA players in my girl’s DMs/ Consistently firing rounds that will never go in/ F### it, I’m only interested in creating money that we’ll never spend. My entire life feels like my blessings are arriving on time. I still despise seafood, but I’m a sucker for oysters,” he rapped.

About two minutes in, the L.A. Leakers switched things up by having Big Sean cover Drake’s “Love All” instrumental. With Kanye West’s “Hurricane” track, Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk rewrote the script once more.

“Everything I know now could’ve been added to the equation back then/

There’s nothing better than having it all, except losing it all and then regaining it.

I don’t need a casket when I die, I need a tomb/I don’t need a casket when I die, I need a tomb/I don’t need a casket when I die, I need a tomb/

My focus has returned, and now I’m being consumed/Yeah, I’m awake with the moon/Mother Nature, so what does it mean when I die and am buried? Sean Don rapped over the Yeezy track, “I’m going back in the womb.”

Big Sean finished the freestyle by rhyming over Nardo Wick’s “Who Want Smoke?” instrumental, which was produced in Florida. The Detroit native didn’t seem phased by the shift in pace, as he altered his flow and continued to spit bars.
