Complex has reported that Kanye West has already begun working on the follow-up to Donda, his critically acclaimed 2021 album

“Ye has started working on his new masterpiece DONDA 2,” Steven Victor exclusively told Complex. Victor has an extensive history with West and previously held the title of COO at G.O.O.D. Music and SVP of A&R at Universal Music Group.

The website also pointed out that if West sticks with the title, it’ll be the first time he’s released a sequel to one of his albums. Donda was certified gold in September.

Last month, Kanye and Drake squashed their beef during a Free Larry Hoover benefit concert at the Los Angeles Coliseum. It was a special night for Kanye, as it was his first headlining solo performance since his Saint Pablo Tour in 2016.

The Sunday Service Choir emerged first to warm up the crowd, walking down the Coliseum steps in all-black attire. Kanye and Drake then emerged from the smoke at the top of the stadium and performed together before Kanye ran through a dazzling array of hits from throughout his discography.

West reminded the audience and viewers at home that it would be difficult to defeat him in a Versus battle. He began his set with “Jesus Walks,” “Gold Digger,” “All Falls Down,” “Touch the Sky,” and “Stronger,” before performing “All of the Lights,” “I Wonder,” “Black Skinhead,” “Good Life,” “Say You Will,” a special rendition of “Runaway,” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”

Drake, taking the opposite approach of Kanye, performed songs from Certified Lover Boyand tracks released during the pandemic. He played songs such as “Wants and Needs,” “Life Is Good,” “What’s Next,” “No Friends in the Industry,” the Kid Cudi-assisted “IMY2,” “Way Too Sexy,” “Laugh Now, Cry Later” and finished with “God’s Plan.”

In other news, Pitchfork recently reported that Netflix’s Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy will premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival in January.

Listen to the best of Kanye West.
