Rapper Azealia Banks is not a fan of Kanye West’s new “DONDA” album and took to social media to offer up an unsurprisingly blunt critique of the project.
“This Donda s—t is wild garbage,” writes Banks. “Music for hegdefund bros.”
She later adds, “If you have ever smelled kanye up close or tried having a conversation with him you’d know that FHAN is a conceptual art piece. I’m clearly making fun of him. I said it because that gospel c—kfest was legit depressing garbage.”
In all fairness, Banks isn’t the only celebrity to pan Ye’s newest offering.
“The Breakfast Club” co-host, DJ Envy, had a lot to say about it… and he hadn’t even listened to the album.
“Kanye is a clown,” DJ Envy said. “He is a clown and a circus. He is a clown and circus, and I’m ashamed of the people around him — Bu, Free, Pusha, [John] Monopoly … he is a clown.”
He adds, “like Charlamagne said seven years ago, when he came up here and said, ‘The people around you don’t love you.’ And Kanye, the people around you don’t love you. You are a clown.”
Gospel Singer Bri Babineaux also spoke out about the project. She says she was unaware Ye’s intention to sample her vocals on “DONDA.”
“Thank you to everyone who congratulated me on the #Donda album,” she wrote. “However, I had no knowledge of this before hand. It wouldn’ve been nice to know before the album came out smh… Who does that voice sound like to y’all? #Donda.”
“DONDA” dropped unexpectedly over the weekend and the rapper first claimed that his label, Universal Music, released the album without his permission. He then accused DaBaby’s manager of not clearing the rapper’s verse for “Jail 2.” The track was initially not featured on the album but was eventually added after the rapper called West out for being a liar.
Chris Brown and Soulja Boy have blasted the rapper for pulling their verses off his project.
