In a recent interview, Smokepurpp confirmed that one name was scrapped from his Deadstar 2 guest features, Kanye West.

Speaking to HipHopDX, Purpp explained that their collaborative track — earlier revealed to be called “No Problem” — was pulled from the record due to West’s religious reaffirmation. “He kind of just changed his ways or whatever,” he said. “Mike Dean mixed the whole album—he executive produced the whole album. So he pretty much just told me [Kanye's] not really cursing and sh*t, he’s not really performing his old songs anymore, he does ‘Jesus Walks.’ If he does do his old songs, he changes the lyrics. Mike Dean told me at first. He was like, ‘Yo, it was going to be harder to get it cleared because he doesn’t curse no more.’ I was just, like, f*ck it, just put it away. He’ll change again.”

Purpp confirmed the existence of “No Problem” during a No Jumper interview in December 2019, claiming that the track will never see an official release. Despite the absence of West, Purpp dropped Deadstar 2 with other guests such as Lil Pump, Ty Dolla $ign, Denzel Curry, Lil Skies, Moneybagg Yo and Trippie Redd.

In other music news, Smoke DZA and Benny The Butcher have shared a “By Any Means” visual.
