Looks like Jay Z and his homie Kanye West are collaborating again. Kanye’s creative agency named after his mom, Donda (West), is joining Roc Nation. Global Grind reports that the deal will include several aspects of Kanye’s brands including recording, press and tour ventures. The artistry behind the YEEZUS campaign, as well as parts of the Watch the Throne tour were credited to DONDA. The past Carter/West collaborations were very successful and we don’t expect this one to be any different.
