Kanye West has talked openly in recent times about his desire to get into the tech industry. Ye is celebrating the success of his latest musical offering with a unique device that offers a one-of-a-kind listening experience.

Fans who have been fortunate enough to receive the Donda stem player have been thrilled with the device, according to social media posts. The tiny Bluetooth device offers users a chance to curate their own unique listening experience. It also comes with three unreleased tracks.

Most notable among the new Kanye tunes is Life of the Party which features Outkast veteran Andre 3000. The song was leaked by Drake on his SiriusXM show back when the Canadian’s renewed rivalry with Kanye was at its apex.

Kanye also figured out a way to feature the late DMX on one of the fresh tracks. Life of the Party features a voice sample of the Party Up rapper along with ad-lib lines sampled from The Notorious B.I.G.


The stem player was developed by Kanye’s Yeezy Tech brand in partnership with electronics maker Kano. Kanye released the gadget to coincide with the release of the long awaited Donda record.

The stem player comes with four touch-sensitive lights that users can rearrange and manipulate to change different aspects of a song. You can order your own stem player from Ye’s website for $200.
