North Carolina rapper DaBaby’s label boss Arnold Taylor is speaking out. The CEO of South Coast Music Group has checked Kanye West over allegedly stalling the release of his Donda album over a clearance.
DaBaby’s Boss Slams Kanye West
Taylor hit up his Instagram page to share a slideshow of screenshots from Ye. The text message pics show Kanye suggesting Arnold kept Baby from appearing on the album’s “Jail” song.
“This is CAP, I woke up this morning to this social media bullshit. I never got a call or email from @[email protected][email protected] I just received it today and Cleared it in 2 seconds. Why wouldn’t I want a hit song out when #SCMG is all about the growth and culture of hip hop and my artist!!! To all of the media blogs and outlets don’t believe everything you see in a post, thank you!!! #SCMGSh*t“
R&B singer Tank hopped into the comments section to show his support for Taylor.
“They need to clear you name.. You’ve been a stand up guy since day 1! 20 plus years!..”
Ye’s Third ‘Donda’ Party Had All Types Of Craziness
This past Thursday, Kanye put together a third and final album listening event. Along with setting himself on fire, Kanye also put the spotlight on rap’s current ‘villain’ DaBaby.
There was also West’s 40-year-old ex, Kim Kardashian, appearing onstage in a white Balenciaga Couture wedding dress, as the estranged couple re-created their 2014 nuptials during “No Child Left Behind.” And then there were the appearances by two controversial figures in Marilyn Manson and DaBaby. West brought out shock rocker Manson, who earlier this year was dropped by his label — and canceled by the rest of the music industry — after a number of women accused him of physically, mentally and sexually abusing them.

Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ Destined For No. 1
While it’s still premature, reports suggest Ye’s long-awaited studio effort will not face any serious retail competition on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The LP’s actual first-week projections are expected to become public knowledge at the start of the week.
Kanye West’s Donda (G.O.O.D./Def Jam) has arrived, and the 27-track set (clocking in at one hour and 49 minutes) is the favorite for the #1 spot on this week’s chart. The week’s other big release, Halsey’s Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross-produced If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power (Capitol), previously appeared a shoo-in for the top spot. Look for first-day projections on Kanye tomorrow. Halsey (Capitol): 95-115k total activity, 70-85k albums Lil Tecca (Galactic/Republic): 30-35k, 1-2k OneRepublic (Mosley/Interscope): 21-24k, 16-19k (HITS Daily Double)
Pusha T Explains Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ Meaning
G.O.O.D Music president Pusha T is big hyped about fans finally getting the chance to hear the new Donda album. The hip-hop veteran has stepped up to dish on Kanye West delivering the must-hear LP to the masses and dug into its meaning.
King Push hit up his Instagram page and didn’t hold back on reflecting on the LP’s importance. He also acknowledged how much it meant to help get Ye’s LP out to the masses.
“This is about power, money, influence and taste…nothing more, nothing less. Watching you “joystick the culture” makes us all proud. Continue to do things your way, congrats, and I’m honored to have been a part of the process. #DONDA”
