Kanye West wants DONDA 2 to be the music of his life. In an interview with Rolling Stone, rapper-producer Digital Nas explained that Kanye has very specific instructions when it comes to his sequel. Nas, who produced “Junya” and “Remote Control” at DONDA, said, “The directives of the album are as follows;
‘If it can‘t be played at a funeral, at birth, at graduation, at a wedding, it won‘t be on our record. ‘ “We learned a lot from DONDA 1. We know what hit him. We know what‘s sticking. So we went from there. It should be played at four important moments in people‘s lives. It‘s crazy, isn‘t it?”
Nas is particularly excited about a track he recorded with future, the album‘s executive producer. “It‘s extraordinary,” he shared.
According to Nas, Ye collaborates with some producers working at Yeezus in 2013, as well as producers from the original DONDA. He also went into the studio with Travis Scott. “[He] pulled over and played rhythm for Ye,” Nas said. Digital Nas is also working on its own album DN3 on February 4. However, he admitted he struggled to hold on to the rhythms. If Ye likes a piece, he wants it for DONDA 2.
“When you say no, it doesn’t take it well,” Nas said. “You have to give him a reason.”
DONDA 2 is scheduled to arrive on February 22nd. It’s unclear what the album will be, but Ye has been spotted in the studio with collaborators such as Big Sean, The Game, Pusha T, Fivio Foreign, Moneybagg Yo and A$AP Rocky.
