The rapper has come under fire after being spotted "in the studio" with Marilyn Manson, working on his upcoming album.
Fans are outraged that Ye is working with Manson, who is facing lawsuits filed by four women.
Although Ye received backlash after working with Marilyn Manson on his Donda track “Jail Pt. 2”, he is reportedly still working with him for his upcoming album.
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, producer Digital Nas revealed that he has spotted Manson in the studio for Donda 2 sessions.
“I see Marilyn a lot in the studio,” Digital Nas told the publication. “Like, every day I go to the studio, Marilyn is there working on Donda 2" he added.
The producer also said Ye and Manson have developed a “crazy dynamic” together, further detailing that Ye “wants Marilyn to play what he makes” when they’re working together.
Nas claims that Ye builds on excerpts as part of a process he compared to the 2013 album Yeezus.
Giving his thoughts on Ye's potential reasoning for working Manson, Digital Nas connected it all to religion.
“I’m just assuming it is from a standpoint of like, ‘We’re all sinners. We all make mistakes. We shouldn’t point the finger at someone for the mistakes they’ve made or something like that,’” he said.
In regards to the pair working together on Donda 2, fans are not happy. One Twitter user wrote: "Kanye reaching a whole new level of toxicity in 2022" while another added: "It’s a pass from me".
A third Twitter user wrote: "Ye taken a massive L for this. I will not be listening to the album tbh".

Ye working with Manson caused uproar as he performed at several Donda performance events last year and was recently pictured hanging out with the Ye and his new girlfriend Julia Fox.
In October, Manson appeared at Ye's Sunday Service along with Justin Bieber for a prayer.
The 'Gold Digger' rapper was scrutinised shortly after by Ashley Morgan Smithline, who has accused Manson of psychological and sexual abuse.
“It makes me sick,” Smithline told People at the time. “How is this the world we live in?”
