You may have heard about the video that leaked of Kanye West yelling at Chance The Rapper in a Wyoming studio while recording his upcoming DONDA album.
According to other bloggers, Kanye was upset about Chance's opinion about a song. The video went viral after it was posted to YouTube on Jan. 23.
The leaked video had a "YZY TV" watermark in a corner -- suggesting that it was part of a documentary about the making of the DONDA album, according to London's Daily Mail, which uploaded the video.
In the video, Kanye is seen in a room with a few men. He climbs over a piece of furniture while yelling, "Josh! Where's the bass?"
Later, he is seen whispering in Chance's ear, and in other scene, he goes off on Chance, telling him "Sit yo a** down and listen to the album or leave!"
Roc-A-Fella co-founder Damon Dash, who produced the documentary, shared his views about the confrontation between the two Chicago natives.
"You know my thing is just get rid of the people that are triggering, get them out of here and let's just have fun being creative. So, you know, Kanye is finishing his album."
Damon says, despite the blowup in the leaked video, the two artists remain good friends.
"Chance, honestly, because of what he was reading [about Kanye's mental issues], he came through just to check [on] Kanye. You know, again, Kanye deals with his [mental] issues at all times. They got into it, but they worked it out," he said.
"At the end of the day, Chance was there just to be a friend.”
Kanye moved to Wyoming in 2019 to get away from his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, who seemed to be enjoying the gossip surrounding the video leak.
She shared a photo of herself covered in frosting, which she captioned, "Don't be messy."
No one knows if Kim was referring to her estranged husband yelling at Chance, or the fans who are commenting about the video leak.
Chance The Rapper first appeared on Kanye's 2016 hit "Ultralight Beam" off his critically acclaimed album The Life of Pablo.
Many say 2016 was the last year that Kanye released meaningful music.
