Just before releasing his latest album entitled Life of a Don, Don Toliver hopped on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning show to discuss his experience with working with Kanye West on DONDA. The Houston rapper spoke with Ebro Darden, Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez as he dove into how the project collaboration came about.

Toliver started off by talking about how the duo was already in the motion of working on records before the concept of DONDA was in actual fruition and indicated how Ye is one of the very few that are completely transparent with him.

“A couple of months before it really started wrapping up, the hype for it really started going crazy, me and ‘Ye was already cooking in his little studio,” said the Heaven Or Hell rapper. “We were already making records. I didn’t even really have a full idea of what Donda was back then. I was just making records with him. Then I had just gotten this one call to pull up on him and when I pulled up, it was a situation where I didn’t know what was going on but I knew he had made records prior to this situation.”

Although “Moon” wasn’t anything he expected it to sound like based on his final recording, he was still thankful for the opportunity given.

“So, at the end of the day, he just sent me off with some songs. I did a bunch of different records, and one of them ended up becoming “Moon,” so it was a crazy blessing for me at the end of the day,” Toliver continued.
