Rapper Kanye West has disclosed he did not have the final say when it came down to the release of his latest album Donda.
The rapper has been working for months without rest on the album and has held three listening parties to keep the hype going.
Sadly, when it came to releasing it, he says he did not approve and maybe this means it should have taken longer to come out.
This was revealed after the rapper shared a post on his Instagram alerting fans that he was not given the final word by universal on the release, and a song had been deleted out.
