Music producer DJ Toomp shared his opinion on Kanye West's long-awaited 10th studio album, Donda.

The renowned producer expressed his disappointment in the album, named for Kanye's late mother, Donda West.

DJ Toomp was in attendance during Kanye's first Donda listening party at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 22.

Like many disappointed Kanye fans, Toomp was particularly irked by the lack of drums or percussion on any of the tracks.

"I hope the album doesn't sound like this," Toomp said during an interview with Big High ATL.

"If I was in the studio with 'Ye, I'd say 'Is this shit gonna drop anywhere? Cause you build us up and we thinkin' that shit finna go crazy but right when you think a beat's gonna drop, that shit go to another song. That's why I was like 'This album must not be finished.'"

DJ Toomp previously worked with Kanye on his Graduation album (2007), producing the tracks "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "Good Life" (featuring T-Pain).

The 51-year-old Atlanta DJ also produced hits for rappers T.I. (pictured), Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Pitbull and Jay Z, among others.

Toomp is eager to work with Kanye to improve the Donda album -- but he has not heard from his old pal, who moved into the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 23 to finish the album.

"I would really love to help him put that album together. I want to hear some more lyrics, man. Definitely beats. But as far as the artist, I want to hear lyrics. Where that shock value at that he usually brings, ya know?"

Toomp said the album doesn't sound like a personal tribute to Kanye's mom.

"He just got out of a divorce, so there's a few things that he wanna pour out personally on that album. It may be a real personal album. If you naming this Donda after your moms, where's that mom record at that's gonna make every n***a whose mom ain't here no more feel like it's their favorite shit on the album."

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris feels betrayed by the LGBT+ community after facing backlash for defending fellow rapper DaBaby's anti-ghey comments.

T.I. spoke out about the growing campaign to cancel DaBaby following his anti-HIV rant during his set at Rolling Loud in Miami on Sunday.

In an Instagram live video, T.I. expressed his frustration with the LGBT+ community for attacking DaBaby's artistic expression onstage.

"Everyone up in arms and upset about what DaBaby said. I understand people saying that they feel that it's insensitive. I think you guys have to understand that on stage, that's not the place that rappers go to be sensitive and soothe everybody's feelings. It's a place to go to have a good time."

T.I. stressed that he was once an ally of the LGBT+ community who are now "bullying" him and DaBaby for practicing their freedom of speech.

"Why do words cause such a visceral reaction that will lead to someone trying to attack, villainize, demonize, crucify, condemn and like, it's, that sh*t is like, now you bullying. We all stood up on behalf of gays and lesbians and people in the gay community because we thought it was some bullsh*t for y'all to have to be bullied.

But I don't think any of us did that to feel like you would now have the authority to come and bully us."

Rapper T.I. defended DaBaby's homophobic speech at the Rolling Out music festival in Miami, Florida on Sunday, July 25.

During his Sunday night set, DaBaby invited fans to put their "cellphone lighters up" if they don't have HIV or AIDS "or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that'll make you die in two to three weeks".

He also told males to hold their cellphones up if they didn't give fellatio to men in the parking lot.

Twitter users were quick to protest the rapper's comments, and LGBT+ advocacy groups called him out for stigmatizing people with HIV.

DaBaby attempted to apologize for his comments on Monday, but he failed miserably.

The rapper claimed his words weren't directed at his gay fans because they're not "nasty ghey n**gas" or "junkies" and they take care of themselves. He said his ghey fans don't have HIV or AIDS.

In an Instagram Live on Monday, T.I. insisted what DaBaby said was no more disturbing than videos by openly gay rapper Lil Nas X.

T.I. said he had "a lot of respect" for openly ghey artists, but he also felt Lil Nas X's new "Industry Baby" video went too far.

"That s**t ain't for me," he said. "I can't look at it."

"If you gonna have the Lil Nas X video and him living his truth, you gonna damn sure have people like DaBaby who gonna speak their truth."

T.I., a father of seven, defended his pro-heterosexual stance.

"I respect gheys... If homosexuals have more rights than heterosexual people, just say that... Just let that be the law," he said.

He added he doesn't want his children watching Lil Nas X's video and he feels the same way about the raunchy "WAP" video by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion -- although he enjoyed watching the "WAP" video.

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old rapper and his wife, Tiny, 46, continue to deny allegations of sexual assault brought against them by multiple women, who have accused the couple of drugging and assaulting them.

Serial killer Rodney James Alcala, who appeared as a contestant on television game show The Dating Game, has died at age 77.

Alcala was a contestant on the popular TV game show in 1978. At the time he had already murdered 5 females.

Alcala won the competition, but his 'date' Cheryl Bradshaw refused to go out with him, because she found him to be "creepy".

Alcala was convicted of the 1979 kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old Robin Samsoe and sent to Death Row in Orange County in 1980. But that conviction was overturned in 1984 by the California Supreme Court, and Alcala was granted a new trial.

In 1986, he was sentenced to death for the Samsoe murder, but later granted a third trial. He was indicted for the murders of Samsoe and four other women with the help of DNA technology.

By 2010, Alcala had been convicted on five counts of first-degree murder. In 2012, he was extradited to New York for the 1971 murder of Cornelia Crilley and the 1977 murder of Ellen Jane Hover. He pleaded guilty to those charges and in 2013 was sentenced in New York to 25 years to life.

In 2016, Wyoming prosecutors charged Alcala with the murder of pregnant Christine Ruth Thornton. He was also linked to other murders in Los Angeles and Marin County in California; Seattle, Washington; New York; New Hampshire, and Arizona.

A Las Vegas man was arrested and charged after he was captured on Ring doorbell camera politely threatening to rape and kill a woman inside her home.

Amanda Nowak was at home alone Wednesday evening when a bearded man knocked on her door and said, "I just have a couple of questions for you."

The Ring video shows the man repeatedly knocking on her door and asking, "Are you sure? Are you positive? Are you absolutely sure," when she declined to open the door.

He eventually walked away but he returned when Nowak's husband, who was not at home, spoke remotely through the Ring intercom.

The suspect politely said, "What I'm looking for is the girl in the house 'cause I'm going to rape her and kill her. Can you have her open the door?"

He added he had a gun and knife.

Nowak called 911 and police arrived moments later, but the suspect had left the scene.

A viewer who saw the report recognized the man and alerted a nearby deputy city marshal, FOX5 reported.

"HE IS IN CUSTODY!" Nowak wrote on Facebook the next day.

The suspect was charged with stalking, coercion and obstructing an officer. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center as "John Doe."

Police said Nowak did the right thing by not opening the door.

Kanye West held a listening party for his long-awaited 10th studio album, Donda, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday, July 22.

His estranged wife, Kim Kardashian and their four children attended the album listening party.

The album was named for Kanye's late mother, Donda West.

According to reports, Kanye was still mixing the album in Atlanta late Thursday, which explains the delayed start of the event.

He was spotted backstage at the stadium working on last-minute tweaks. He invited rappers Plaiboi Carti and 2 Chainz to add verses to the album on Thursday. Which likely means the album will not be ready for release on Friday.

The event finally got underway around 9:30 p.m., as Kanye strolled onto the white stadium floor wearing a red bubble jacket with matching red tank top and latex pants.

The highlight of the unfinished album was Jay Z's verse on "Guess Who's Going to Jail Tonight." Jay Z reportedly recorded his verse at 4 p.m. today.

The album reviews were all bad on Twitter and

One Reddit user wrote:

"As a HUGE Kanye stan, this was f--king horrible. Idk how anyone is defending this."

Another Reddit user wrote:

"Remember when you saw the Sha'carri commercial and thought 'oh shit when the beat drops on this track, its gonna be crazy'. Well, that's every song. And the beat never drops."

And a third Reddit user wrote:

"this album was so bad that the only way you could save it is by calling it "avant garde."

The same giddy women who helped catapult YouTuber Kevin Samuels to stardom now want him gone from the Internet.

Samuels - a self-described relationship expert - made a name for himself by making degrading comments about Black women.

Now his critics want him gone for galvanizing "men of all races and nationalities in the outspoken hatred of women."

Over 12,000 people signed a petition on calling for Samuels' removal from social media platforms.

The petition claims Samuels' rhetoric has inspired men to commit "Acts of violence, sexually predatory behavior and even death" against women.

"Women feel unsafe in the presence of men who identify with his ideology and have even been berated while going about their daily lives, (yes, even while at work), with criticisms that have been spoken directly from Mr. Samuels’ mouth. The very words that were spoken on social media platforms have permeated every facet of daily life for unsuspecting women."
