Kanye West, 'Donda,' album release

Over the weekend, Kanye West's 10th studio album Donda finally dropped.

The rapper has since taken to social media, claiming Universal released it without his permission.

He wrote on Instagram, 'Universal put my album out without my approval and they blocked Jail 2 from being on the album.'

While Universal haven't responded, Variety's company sources called his claims, 'preposterous.'

His, 'Jail 2,' comments were in reference to his track Jail Pt 2.

The song was unavailable to stream upon the album's initial release, however, it's since been made available.

Both the track and its counterpart Jail have caused quite a lot of controversy online.

It's due to the fact that both Marilyn Manson and DaBaby appear on Jail Pt 2, while Manson is credited on Jail, according to Pitchfork.

Manson has been accused of sexual assault by several women.

While DaBaby has been making headlines over his homophobic comments at a festival earlier this month.

There was uproar online after both artists made appearances at West’s fourth Donda listening event in Chicago last week.
