Kanye West's 'taking a year off' according to 'Donda' collaborator Vory.
Kanye West's Collaborator Vory Says Donda Rapper Is Taking a Year Off: 'He Doesn't Want to Talk'
Meek Mill's Dreamchasers Artist has worked side-by-side with Kanye West for the last couple of years, contributing to multiple tracks on Donda and Donda 2.
Ye has been through a whole lot and according to DONDA collaborator Vory, he is ready to take some time off for himself. During a recent interview with Complex, Vory stated that Ye didn't come to his Lost Souls listening party because the artist wants to take a year off from music and public life.
“The person who made me realize my twisted thoughts weren’t so twisted was Ye, because we think alike. I was just talking to him today,” Vory said of their relationship.
“We’ve been talking through my best friend who’s also his assistant, because he hasn’t been wanting to talk to anybody. He’s taking a year off, and he was like, ‘Damn, you think Vory is going to be mad at me if I don’t go to his release party?’ And I was like, ‘Nah, you’re straight, bro.’ He’s battling his own shit. That’s my dog, I learned a lot from him.”
Vory released his album Lost Souls last Friday and the 17-track project features a track in collaboration with West. The song, titled "Daylight" was produced by West, E. Vax, Ojivolta and 88-Keys.
The singer is signed to Meek Mill's Dream Chasers Records in 2020 and featured on West's Donda album but the collaboration that features on Lost Souls didn't make it to the final cut of Donda.
"I was originally featured on Donda five times," he told Complex. "And [Kanye] was just like, 'Bruh, we damn near got an EP on this thing.' So I guess his team decided that three times was enough."
