Kanye West Deleted Chris Brown Off Of ‘DONDA’

An interesting phenomenon has popped up in the past decade since the music industry turned to streaming services for distribution–the post-release edit. Kanye West, the perfectionist artist-producer, has taken full advantage of this. He’s made continual post-release edits to albums like The Life of Pablo and Watch the Throne, among others.

It’s fascinating to hear the subtle changes to something as critically praised as West’s work. It’s the equivalent of watching Michelangelo chip away the final remnants of David. Chris Brown, unfortunately for him, is one of those remnants.

Fans of West took to social media this week to point out edits to DONDA, most notably the removal of Brown on the track titled New Again. “Breezy” sang backing vocals on the track but has since been removed. The reason seems to be Brown’s recent social media comments about West which include calling the Chicago rapper “A whole hoe,” which is more than half a hoe and certainly more inflammatory than a quarter hoe.

Kanye West, instead of responding on social media, decided to delete Brown off DONDA. A whole delete. Not just a half or quarter.

It should be noted that West isn’t the only one to enact the post-release edit as Drake’s album, Certified Lover Boy, has seen a fair share of changes, too. DONDA, in addition to the Breezy-Delete (as it shall be named thus forth), also features a few new mixing tweaks.

What do you think of the changes to DONDA? Also, how much of a hoe, if any, is Kanye West?
