FANS of Kanye West were furious when his Donda 2 album was not released at midnight on Tuesday.
The album was set to drop overnight on February 22, 2022, and fans took to Twitter with their annoyance when it did not materialize at that time.
Kanye has set up a live performance of the album scheduled to take place in Miami during the last week of the month.
Plus, Kanye’s documentary, Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, debuted on February 16 amid the rapper’s ongoing divorce from Kim Kardashian.
Kardashian, who filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after seven years of marriage, also unfollowed Ye on Instagram after the rapper slammed her boyfriend Pete Davidson yet again on the social media platform.

Ye fights back, part three
According to People, West wants his “right of reimbursement” to be carried out “if either party dies.”
He also wants for Kardashian to agree not to shift assets from their trust until the terms of their property are settled.
West’s petitions were “rejected” by Kardashian on Tuesday.
“Kim’s motion should be denied without prejudice so that Kim can refile it with the mandatory corrections and requested conditions,” West’s attorneys said in the filing.
For the time being, a hearing on Kardashian’s petition, in which she also requested that her maiden name be restored, is scheduled for early March.
Ye fights back, continued
The response lays out a number of “conditions” that the Donda rapper wants to be met.
This includes Kardashian giving up her marital privileges with West — and her future husband, if she remarries — until their custody battle is completed.
Marital privilege protects spouses from having to testify against them or serve as witnesses.
It also permits them to keep private discussions between them.
The document says: “If status is terminated now without his condition, then a barrier to obtaining evidence regarding parenting and custody will arise if Kim remarries before the case is concluded.”
Ye fights back against Kim’s singlehood
According to court records acquired by People, the 44-year-old rapper responded to his ex’s December petition to become legally single in the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County on Wednesday.
In their response, West’s attorneys warn that awarding single status before problems like custody of their four children and shared property are resolved in their pending divorce might lead to “a risk of adverse consequences.”
“An early termination of status also creates barriers to obtaining evidence” if one of them “remarries before the case is concluded,” the documents say, per People.
Kanye criticizes streaming services, continued
He continued, writing: “Some say I’m the only one who can make this change. So as the leading innovator in music of the past 20 years. I’m putting my own work on the line to change it.
“I’ve already won by not being afraid to move. Now we’re winning because there are true supporters that have invested their hard earned money in my vision of freedom.”
Kanye criticizes streaming services
Kanye West said that in the 24 hours since announcing that Donda 2 will only be accessible to stream on his Stem Player, he had sold over 6,200 units, worth $1.3million.
Along with disclosing the sales figures, he also slammed streaming platforms, explaining why his forthcoming album won’t be accessible there when it drops on February 22, 2022 (2/22/22).
The Stem Player sales data, which include $8.6million in total purchases since the $200 gadget was debuted in August 2021 for Donda, were shared on Instagram.
He wrote: “I walked away from Apple right after having the most number 1’s in Apple history. Song Writers have been really hurt by streaming platforms.”
Kanye feud with Kid Cudi
Aside from bashing Pete left and right, Kanye also called out one of his collaborators, and fellow rapper, Cudi.
In fact, Kanye even dropped Cudi, 38, from his upcoming Donda 2 album because he’s “friends with Pete.”
The Pursuit of Happiness artist was not too pleased with Kanye’s announcement as he jumped in the comments section and said: “Too bad I don’t wanna be on your album you f**king dinosaur.
Cudi added: “Everyone knows I’ve been the best thing about your albums since I met you.”
He was not done with his rant as Cudi took to Twitter and wrote: “You’re whack for flipping the script and posting this lie just for a look on the internet…”
This feud is still quite fresh with no resolution in sight.
Kanye feud with Drake
Another one of Kanye’s notable feuds involved Drake, which kicked off after the dad of four produced a Pusha T song that slammed the Degrassi alum.
Drake, 35, would eventually send both artists a $100K invoice for “career reviving” after the song’s release.
Kanye and Drake would be quite icy to one another for quite some time, however, it seems they have buried the hatchet as back in November 2021 they posed for a photo together.
Kanye feud with Ray J
Kanye’s baby mama Kim, 41, infamously appeared in a sex tape with Ray J, so this feud should come as no surprise.
The Donda rapper has called out Ray J in numerous songs including his 2016 track Highlights.
He rapped at the time: “I bet me and Ray J would be friends if we didn’t like the same b**ch/ Yeah, he might have hit it first, only problem is I’m rich.”
Recently, Kanye claimed he flew to meet Ray J and obtain the laptop which contained an alleged second sex tape featuring Kim.
Ray J, 41, would go on to seemingly shut down the speculation of a tape, tweeting: “This needs to stop. I also have kids.”
Kanye feud with Jay-Z
It got heated between the two titans of hip hop when Kanye called out Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, during a rant at a 2016 concert in Sacramento.
Jay-Z, 52, would eventually hit back at Kanye in his 4:44 album in 2017 while the artist known as Ye would remove all of his songs from the New York rapper’s music service Tidal.
Jay-Z said in 2017 about the feud: “… What really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times.
“He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem…”
Kanye feud with Justin Timberlake
Kanye even called out former boy band member Justin Timberlake at the 2015 Video Music Awards as he recalled an encounter between the two at the Grammys.
Kanye said: “… I sat at the Grammys and saw Justin Timberlake and Cee-Lo Green lose. Gnarls Barkley and the FutureSex/LoveSound album, and bro, Justin, I’m not trying to put you on blast but I saw that man in tears, bro.
“And I was thinking he deserved to win Album Of the Year. And the small box that we are of entertainers of the evening, how could you explain that?”
Justin’s response? “Kanye is so cute, y’all,” he tweeted.
Kanye feud with Machine Gun Kelly
This feud may just be brewing as during one of his Super Bowl weekend rants Kanye claimed “no one has heard a song” by Machine Gun Kelly.
While MGK has not responded it is best to keep an eye on this one as Megan Fox’s soon-to-be husband was once in a feud with another notable rapper: Eminem.
Kanye feud with Jimmy Kimmel
It’s not all musicians either, as even late-night hosts have felt Kanye’s wrath.
Jimmy Kimmel decided to poke fun at Kanye after the Yeezy founder claimed he was the “biggest” rock star.
Kanye tweeted at the time: “Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years.”
However, things seemed to be set right when Kanye appeared on Jimmy’s late-night program.
What happened between Taylor Swift and Kanye?
It all started when a 19-year-old Taylor Swift accepted the Best Female Video award for her love hymn You Belong with Me at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Kanye West went up on stage and grabbed the microphone as she was making a lovely acceptance speech.
He cut off the vocalist in the middle of her speech.
West expressed his admiration for Taylor Swift, saying that he was glad for her and that he would let her finish.
He did, however, say that Beyonce’s video was one of the best of all time, and he repeated his phrase for emphasis.
Billie Eilish and Kanye, continued
Following the performance, West wrote on Instagram that he will not attend Coachella with Eilish unless she officially apologizes to Scott.
Despite the fact that Eilish made no mention of Scott throughout her performance, West seemed to infer that she was referencing the 2021 Astroworld tragedy.
Kanye wrote: “Come on Billie we love you please apologize to Trav and to the families of the people who lost their lives.”
What happened between Billie Eilish and Kanye?
Kanye West shared a screenshot of an article saying that 20-year-old singer Billie Eilish had dissed Travis Scott on Thursday, February 10.
A fan at one of Eilish’s performances reportedly needed an asthma inhaler, and the singer took a moment away from her act to check on them.
Eilish went on to say that she waits “for people to be okay until I keep going.”
Following the performance, Kanye announced on Instagram that he will not attend Coachella with Eilish unless she officially apologizes to Travis.

“And it saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible every step of the way…”
Aside from North, the exes share Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, two.
Kimye’s kids: Psalm West
Psalm is Kim and Kanye’s youngest child.
Born on May 10, 2019, he is two years old.
Kim Kardashian said in February 2020 that she believes Psalm is the reincarnation of her father, Rob Kardashian Sr.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians actress, whose father died in 2003, confessed she learned about the concept while on vacation in Indonesia.
“We were in Bali, and a woman – a blind medium – came up to me and said that I was going to have another son and that it was going to be my father reincarnated,” she told E! News.
Kimye’s kids: Chicago West
Chicago was born on January 15, 2018, and she just turned four years old.
After physicians advised Kim, 37, that carrying a third child would be risky, she and Kanye chose to use a surrogate.
Chicago was born in early 2018 weighing 7lbs 6oz and was conceived with Kim’s egg and Kanye’s sperm.
The name Chicago is an homage to Kanye’s late mother, as it was her hometown.
Kimye’s kids: Saint West

Kim has been candid about the difficulty of her pregnancies.
She developed hypertension during her first pregnancy, forcing her to deliver at 34 weeks.

After Kim’s difficult pregnancy, they chose the name Saint as a “blessing.”
Kimye’s kids: North West

Did Kim and Kanye use surrogacy?
Kim and Kanye turned to surrogacy to aid them with carrying Chicago and Psalm.
