The 44-year-old singer, who surprised everyone at his listening party after Kim Kardashian was on stage wearing a wedding dress, has accused Universal Music Group of releasing his album without his prior authorization.

Kanye wrote on Sunday just hours after the official release, “UNIVERSAL PUT MY ALBUM OUT WITHOUT MY APPROVAL AND THEY BLOCKED JAIL 2 FROM BEING ON THE ALBUM.”

He also shared with his fans and followers that Universal made changes to the album, including the removal of the 24th track Jail Pt 2featuring DaBaby, following the scandal caused by homophobic remarks, which caused his exit from a number of music festivals.

The controversial song also featured a collaboration with Marilyn Manson, with both of the artists attending his listening party, trending on social media, not only for DaBaby’s presence, but also for Manson’s sexual assault accusations, that involve Hollywood actress Evan Rachel Wood.
