But then the always brutally honest presenter said that although he liked a few tracks, the album didn’t really suit him overall. “When I first heard it, it was lackluster to me,” he said.

Another caller claimed that Kanye had “thrown black people under the bus” for the past six years with his embrace of former President Trump and his controversial comments on slavery, and agreed with Envy on the “clown” label.

Similarly, Brown reportedly posted a comment on his Insta story just hours after the album was released and then deleted it referring to Yeezus as the “whole hoe.” Although Brown has songwriting credit , his vocals do not appear on the track “New Again”.
