Kanye West’s Record Label Stays Mum on Release Date of “Donda,” Same Thing Happened One Year Ago This Week


Def Jam Records has no idea what the deal is with Kanye West‘s Donda album.

This morning they sent out a press release saying only that Kanye had “unveiled” the album last night at  sold out listening party.

Other than that there was no word about when or if the album would ever be released.

There’s something on the release about Kanye beating the Beatles or some nonsense. LOL. Don’t get me started.

It’s possible this is a seasonal disorder for Kanye. He did the same thing last year almost to the day– announced the album’s release and then nothing happened.  Read here and here.

Kanye also said last September — he may not recall — that he wouldn’t release any more music until his contracts with Sony and Universal were up. Anyone remember that?
