Kanye West reportedly hosted a listening party for his Donda 2 album Monday night at Nobu restaurant in Malibu, California, that was attended by Travis Scott, Kendall Jenner, French Montana, Offset and more, according to Page Six and TMZ.
West also posted a photo of himself in a studio session with Scott, Drake, Baby Keem and Young Lean, with the caption, “Donda 2 2 22 22,” hinting they may appear on the album, set to drop February 22.
Following the listening session, the group went to the Sunny Vokda party at The Nice Guy in Hollywood where they caught up with Drake.
On Tuesday, Yeezy also posted a six-minute Instagram video following up his previous statement about changing the name of Black History Month to Black Future Month.
In the clip, the “Pop Style” rapper is in the center of a group of people wearing hoodies, describing the disparities he feels as a Black man in this country.
“America is made to enslave us, what they ever gave us?” West said. “We’d improve. We didn’t show, it’s documented, now it’s cemented, lack future it’s time to invent it. If Ye said it, you know that he meant it. There’s no more Black History Month, every February reminding us that we just barely can vote.”
Kanye continued rapping, “When they write the history, when they write the narrative, when they take something that’s strong and make it look like it’s an embarrassment, when they take something that’s weak and even try to make a comparison, when you say something that’s strong and they say that you arrogant.”
“I’ve been waiting for us to take the power in our own hand,” Ye added. “I’ve been waiting for us to control our narrative.”
