Todd Rundgren claims Kanye West rushed Donda release because of Drake
‘In the end, Drake ate his lunch anyway,’ 73-year-old musician said

Todd Rundgren と主張している カニエ・ウェスト rushed the release of ドンダ to outrun ドレイク but ended up with an incoherent, protracted album instead.

と話す Ultimate Classic Rock, the 73-year-old multi-instrumentalist and producer condemned the amount of “junk” on the record, which he said was due to West being “too afraid Drake would one-up him”.

As a consequence, Rundgren said West ended up releasing “what is obviously really raw, unprocessed stuff”.

"最終的には, Drake ate his lunch anyway,” Rundgren added.

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy was released the weekend after ドンダ, だが out-streamed West’s 26-track album in the United States in just three days, according to data released by 転がる石.

Rundgren, who isn’t listed among the long list of 共同編集者 that West worked with on ドンダ, branded West a “dilettante” and “a shoe designer”.

He also criticised West’s over-the-top listening parties ahead of the album launch, along with his habit of inviting multiple artists to collaborate then not including them on the final project.

彼は言った, “Nobody would regularly make records like that unless they had stupid money to throw around. Nobody rents a stadium to make a record in. Nobody flies in the entire world of hip-hop just to croak one syllable, just so you can say that everybody was on it.

Rundgren revealed hat producer 88-Keys reached out to him to to contribute to the album, but said he exited the project a year later over a lack of clear feedback from West.

He claimed to have “three albums worth of Kanye stems” on his computer but said he reached his breaking point in July this year, when the buzz around ドンダ began to intensify.
