As the chatter around Kanye West's rumored 10th solo album named after his late mother, 'Donda,' boomed during the past 48 hours, Lil Durk revealed that he was supposed to appear as a featured artist.
But one misstep caused him to miss this huge opportunity.
"I missed the jet," Durkio wrote under an IG post about the project. "Well next album." Back in January when the 28-year-old released the deluxe version of 'The Voice,' he reenacted some of Yeezy's most iconic moments in the Lyrical Lemonade video for "Kanye Krazy."
While Durk will likely be absent, the slack is reportedly being picked up by other major acts like Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, Post Malone, Baby Keem, Pusha T and Westside Gunn.
Kanye hosted a last-minute listening party in Las Vegas where fans leaked details and snippets.
The first person to tease Kanye's album, however, was talk show host Justin Laboy. He detailed hearing the music alongside Kanye and Kevin Durant, calling the beats "lightyears ahead of its time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again."
Another surprise guest could be Tyler, The Creator. New York rapper Consequence, who was once signed to Kanye's GOOD Music label, posted a clip with no sound of the two visionaries vibing out in the studio.
Yeezy is manning the computer wearing a full balaclava face covering while Tyler smiles and bops his head. "Epic Level Summer '21," Consequence announced.
If you look closely at the whiteboard in the background, there seems to be a tracklist, too. Someone deciphered the possible song titles, like "Donda" at the top and "Hurricane."
Back in 2015, Ye and Tyler collaborated on the hectic yet blissful "Smuckers," also featuring Lil Wayne. Roughly a year later, Kanye co-signed Tyler's fashion influence and sense for design when he gave him a gift at his 2016 Golf Wang runway show in Los Angeles.
