A few hours after Kanye West revealed his plans to release ‘Donda 2’ would be released on February. 22, the rapper and producer Digital Nas has revealed more information about the project.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Digital Nas who was the one to produce ‘Junya’ and ‘Remote Control’ (as as well as the “Part 2” for each) on the album last year’s ‘Donda The Album’;, spoke about the album’s first sequel.
“These are the directives for the album: ‘”If it cannot be played at a funeral, childbirth, graduation, a wedding, it will not be on our record,'” Nas said to the magazine. “We gained a lot of knowledge from Donda 1. We were able to identify what hit. We found out the things that were sticking. Then we took it from there. It must be able to play at four key events in the lives of people. That’s crazy, right?”
He’s 23 years old. Atlanta native said he’s thrilled to let fans hear a specific song Ye made with executive producer Future. “That’s just phenomenal,” Nas disclosed, adding that you can anticipate Travis Scott to show up on the album as well. “Travis Scott pulled up and played beats for Ye,” Nas said.
While making ‘Donda’, Nas claims he provided Ye an album of 150 beats. West performing freestyles over about 60 of them.
“So out of 60 freestyles, how do you know that only two of them made the cut? This made me think “Oh, okay. It’s one of those fields that much thought has gone into this list of tracks” said the singer. “What I took from ‘Remote Control,’ ‘Junya,’ and even writing on ‘Hurricane,’ it’s like, ‘Take your time with what you make, don’t try to rush into it.'”
Nas also added “With Ye, when you play him music, if he doesn’t move to it, he doesn’t like it,” Nas states. “So if he’s not moving, I just go to the next song, and that’s kind of how I’ve been basing my track listing.”
