After a characteristically dramatic rollout, Kanye West‘s tenth studio album, Donda has been officially released in all of its controversial glory. With creative assistance from The Weeknd, Young Thug, Playboi Carti, Kid Cudi, and a reunion with JAY-Z, among others, Kanye’s new 27-track album renders no shortage of A-list talent.
Alongside a similarly stacked cast of production talent that includes 88Keys, Mike Dean, Boi-1da, and Swizz Beatz, French visionary, Gesaffelstein, is credited on multiple tracks on the record. In 2013, the Lyon-native worked directly with Kanye on Yeezus, notably on the tracks “Send It Up” and “Black Skinhead.”
Nearly a decade after their first pairing, Gesaffelstein and Kanye West’s broodingly dark, complex signatures comes together once again on “No Child Left Behind,” “Jesus Lord,” and “Jesus Lord pt. 2,” respectively.
