Famed singer, songwriter, producer and 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Todd Rundgren worked on Kanye West's Donda album for about a year.

However, he's not sure if any of his contributions have made the final product, which he called "raw, unprocessed stuff."

In an interview with UCR, Rundgren shaded Kanye's process and said that Drake made him rush Donda.

"He’s just a dilettante at this point," he said, describing Ye as a "shoe dsigner". " Nobody would regularly make records like that unless they had stupid money to throw around. Nobody rents a stadium to make a record in. Nobody flies in the entire world of Hip Hop just to croak one syllable, just so you can say that everybody was on it.

"My involvement went on for a year, and in the end I realized why they hurriedly wrapped the whole thing up and put out what is obviously really raw, unprocessed stuff. It’s because Drake was running the whole process. He was too afraid that Drake would one-up him, so he hurried up and released the album the weekend before Drake could get his out. And in the end, Drake ate his lunch anyway."
