Kanye West is reportedly releasing Donda 2 as an independent artist says Wack 100.
"[Kanye's] definitely independent. He's definitely watching what I'm doing and he's up in the air. He's been working on Donda 2. He's got a great team in there with him. He's been up in the air on which direction he's going with it," he said to Complex.
"I actually uploaded it through my TuneCore account, at maybe 6:30 that morning," he continued. "Hoping that it got their attention, I blocked it to everybody but Spotify. I called TuneCore, and for 24 hours, I made it available to Spotify and Spotify only."
Last year on Drink Champs, Ye was asked whether he was still on Def Jam.
Ye said "I'm off of it now," before going off on a rant about his alleged 10 contracts with the label. Ye said "everybody that supposedly cared for me knew I had 10 contracts," and that "one of my skill sets is not reading, one of my skill sets is not counting."
