We don’t know if Donda 2 will ever end up on streaming platforms. As you may know, Kanye West said the project would only be available through his stem player device, which goes for $200. Donda 2 came out partially as Stem Player exclusive last month, and Corey Taylor isn’t a fan of the idea.
Many fans are willing to shell out that type of money to listen to Ye’s latest project, but not everybody is ready to do the same. Mr. West was heavily criticized for not making his latest project available to the masses via mainstream platforms.
In a conversation with Metro, Corey Taylor, the lead vocalist of Slipknot, compared the stem player to releasing car parts to people and saying they won a free car only to build it themselves.
“You’re assuming that the audience has the access and same technology that you have but you’re a f*****g moron for doing that. Are you serious? It doesn’t work that way. The thinking that that’s a smart thing to do just shows you how convoluted and off the f*****g property Kanye West really is,'” Taylor said. “When you’ve got that much money and that much people around you telling you exactly what you want to hear, your concept of reality just goes right out the f*****g window.”
Many have hailed Ye a genius for the move, but Taylor said that Slipknot “would be f*****g demonized” for pulling something like this. Not to mention that Donda 2 was recently classified as ineligible for Billboard music charts.
As for the 44-year-old Chicago native rapper, he never lets criticisms of his endeavors slide; we’ll have to wait and see what response Kanye has for Taylor. Until then, stay tuned.
