Kanye West Rushed ‘Donda’ To Drop Before Drake’s ‘CLB’ Says Collaborator Todd Rundgren

Did Kanye West rushed Donda so he could drop before Drake? The G.O.O.D. Music rapper’s latest project has been met with mixed and drastically differing reviews.

He is notorious for stacking up collaborations from rappers, singers, and artists of all kinds, and it seems some people find this practice inconsiderate and inefficient. In a new interview with UCR, multi-instrumentalist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Todd Rundgren admitted that he spent far too much time contributing to Donda, only to find that none of his work made the final cut. “I have three albums worth of Kanye stems on my computer,” Ru...

Jay-Z’s TIDAL Put ‘$500K or Dinner’ Question To Bed, 21 Savage Speak

Jay-Z or anyone running his TIDAL’s Twitter page has finally put the burning question of $500K or dinner with Hov to bed.

A surprising amount of fans chose the dinner with Jay over half a million dollars, arguing that a couple of hours with Hov would give them all the financial intelligence they need to become millionaires. It could, of course, be argued that a well-invested $500k has a better chance of earning someone a millionaire status, maybe even getting them into the same social circles with Jay himself.
