Kanye West drops Jay-Z's verse from 'Jail'
In related news, YEN.com.gh reported that Kanye West has apparently dropped Jay-Z's verse from his new single, Jail. The superstar performed the song in front of his hometown crowd of Chicago on Thursday night, 26 August during another Donda listening event.
When it was time for Jay-Z's verse, DaBaby came on stage and replaced Jigga's verse with his own verse. Marilyn Manson, who has reportedly been sued by multiple women, also joined West on stage. TMZ reports that Manson did not feature in any of the songs that Kanye played to his fans on the night.
The publication reports that the stage during the party was a replica of Kanye's childhood home. Tweeps took to the publication's comment section on Twitter to share their thoughts on Kanye apparently removing Hov's verse from the album. @JusDana said:
"Jay's verse probably had some clearance and business issues, at the end of the day Jay is a business man."
