The album was to have been released earlier, but Ye pushed the release date to 3 September 2021, to coincide with the release date of his one-time friend now rival Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” album.
Kanye West had performed his “Jail” tune on Thursday 26 August in his hometown Chicago. When it was time for Jay-Z’s verse. DaBaby hopped on the podium and released his own verse, which was different from Jay-Z’s.
While some fans were surprised Jay-Z’s verse was removed, others were not. Kanye West has had sporadic tiffs with Jay-Z. Their relationship dates back twenty years and seems to be on-again and off-again.
By the way, when Kanye West made a run for the presidency of the United States last year, he had invited Jay-Z to join him in the campaign trail as vice president. That didn’t work out, and oh, Ye also didn’t win the election. Joe Biden did.
