After Kanye West allegedly cut one of Chris Brown’s verses from his new album, “Donda,” the rapper resorted to name-calling.
While Brown’s vocals appear on the chorus of the album’s 18th song, “New Again,” an additional verse that he apparently recorded was missing when “Donda” finally hit streaming services on Sunday morning.
In response to the alleged snub, Brown, 32, wrote on his Instagram Story, “Kanye a whole hoe.” “Nah he tweakin,” he added in another post.
According to a source close to the situation, Brown — who was last featured on West’s 2016 album, “The Life of Pablo,” on the song “Waves” — “was a little heated about his verse being removed from one of the new album’s songs.”
Brown isn’t the only artist who has expressed dissatisfaction with being left off of West’s much-anticipated (and much-delayed) album. Soulja Boy also called out Kim Kardashian’s estranged husband for allegedly ignoring his verse.
The 31-year-old “Crank That” rapper released screenshots of a conversation he had with West in which they discussed the verse, with Soulja Boy tweeting angrily Sunday, “This n—-a Kanye smh.” Tell him not to call my phone anymore.”
Meanwhile, embattled rapper DaBaby was originally cut from the “Donda” song “Jail” following his homophobic rant in July, but West rectified the situation and had DaBaby’s version, titled “Jail Pt. 2,” added to the album hours after it dropped on Sunday.
Despite the internet canceling DaBaby due to his controversial comments, West said he decided to proceed with their collaboration because the “Rockstar” rapper was “the only person who said he would vote for me in public” in the 2020 presidential election.
West has since claimed that “Donda” was released without his permission by Universal Music Group, the parent company of Def Jam Records.
“UNIVERSAL PUT MY ALBUM OUT WITHOUT MY APPROVAL AND THEY BLOCKED JAIL 2 FROM BEING ON THE ALBUM,” he alleged in an Instagram post-Sunday.
Marylin Manson, who is accused of multiple counts of sexual assault and abuse, also appears in “Jail Pt. 2.”
