Ye has been hard at work on DONDA 2, which is being executive produced by Future. He recently revealed that he was giving up his phone until the album drops on Feb. 22.
“I don’t have a phone until 2.22.22,” he said. “My focus is taking my kids to school and finishing the album.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone, DONDA 2 collaborator Digital Nas opened up about the creative process of making a sequel to last year’s DONDA.
“These are the directives for the album: ‘If it cannot be played at a funeral, childbirth, graduation, a wedding, it will not be on our record,’” said Nas. “We learned a lot from DONDA 1. We learned what hit. We learned what was sticking. So we took from there. It has to be able to be played at four major moments in people’s lives.”
