West's tenth studio album Donda was released last year, and it was announced in January that the rapper's follow-up album would be a sequel to it.

The rapper, who now legally goes by the name "Ye," explained that music artists only get 12% of the money they make because of streaming services. However, West's Stem Player isn't cheap, as fans wanting to get their hands on the device will have to pay a whopping $200 for it! According to the product's website, the Bluetooth-equipped device comes with Donda and will allows users the ability to alter the music they listen to on it with stems, isolation, and effects.
