Social Media Reacts To Kanye West Updating ‘Ye’ Album After Inability To Clear Sample

While Kanye West released his Ye album in June, the project received mixed reviews, and now that he’s been unable to clear a sample on the opening track, the newest updates to the project may have made reviews further plummet.

On Wednesday (Nov. 7), fans peeped a change to the 7-track project, noticeably on the opener “I Thought About Killing You,” which used Kareem Lofty’s “Fr3sh” track as a sample that he’s been unable to clear.

Subsequently, studio engineer Adam Wolper has confirmed the sample was nixed and that the entire album’s received a “cleaned up” new mix. But, some listeners aren’t too happy, with one tweeting, “imma be honest I understand Kanye may have not gotten the old beat cleared or whatever but this new I Thought About Killing You beat at the end is just not the same, not as good.”
