Marilyn Manson was recently accused of rape by his former lover Evan Rachel Wood. He soon came forward to deny the allegations against him. Now, it appears the 53-year old isn’t too bothered about the backlash he’s facing as he focuses his time creating music with Kanye.
Manson has been reportedly working closely with Kanye West on his new album. During an interview with Rolling Stone, Ye’s collaborator Digital Nas revealed that “every day” when he goes to the studio, “Marilyn is in there working on Donda 2.”
Nas further revealed the details regarding Manson’s involvement in the project. He said, “[Ye] doesn’t want Marilyn to play rap beats.” Nas added, “He wants Marilyn to play what he makes, and then Ye will take parts of that and sample parts of that and use parts of that like he did [generally when making] ‘Yeezus’.”
Nas also said some of the producers from Ye’s 2013 album Yeezus are working on Donda 2. In addition to them, Kanye has his producers from Donda on board as well.
This won’t be the first time the pair have joined forces. The singer, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, was credited co-writer on the song “Jail” from Ye’s album Donda. Manson has also made an appearance at Ye’s Sunday Service events.
