André 3000 has shared a statement in regards to the unreleased Kanye West song “Life of the Party,” a cut that features a verse from him but supposedly did not make it on the final DONDA album.

The statement confirmed that Ye had reached out to Three Stacks for a feature on DONDA, adding that it’s “unfortunate” that “Life of the Party” was released in this manner:

“A few weeks ago Kanye reached out about me being a part of the Donda album. I was inspired by his idea to make a musical tribute to his mom. It felt appropriate to me to support the Donda concept by referencing my own mother, who passed away in 2013. We both share that loss. I thought it was a beautiful choice to make a clean album but, unfortunately, I didn’t know that was the plan before I wrote and recorded my verse. It was clear to me that an edited ‘clean’ format of the verse would not work without having the raw, original also available. So, sadly, I had to be omitted from the original album release.

The track I received and wrote to didn’t have the diss verse on it and we were hoping to make a more focused offering for the Donda album but I guess things happen like they are supposed to. It’s unfortunate that it was released in this way and two artists that I love are going back and forth. I wanted to be on Certified Lover Boy too. I just want to work with people that inspire me. Hopefully I can work with Kendrick on his album. I’d love to work with Lil’ Baby, Tyler and Jay-Z. I respect them all.”

Drake leaked “Life of the Party” during a Sound 42 episode on SiriusXM. The song hears West directly call out Drizzy and the battle between DONDA and Certified Lover Boy: “Thought we was the new Abu Dhabi/Told Drake don’t play with me, on GD/And he sent that message to everybody/So if I hit you with a ‘W-Y-D’/You better hit me with, ‘Yes sir, I’m writing everything you need’/I told you I was gonna take the summer back/So any of the cap, won’t take none of that.”

Elsewhere in music, Kid Cudi spoke about his supposed The Scotts collaborative album with Travis Scott for the first time in months.
