When Kanye West first unveiled the YZY stem player during Donda’s rollout, it was only a matter of time before fans got their hands on the innovative new gadget.
As orders now start to be fulfilled, buyers took to social media to show off the many surprises the stem player had in store.

Ye’s intuitive audio device features four previously unreleased songs — in addition to the original 27 DONDA cuts that are currently available on streaming services. Of the three tracks is the notable “Life Of The Party” with Andre 3000, which leaked on SiriusXM radio following Ye’s and Drake latest chapter of their longtime rivalry.

The emergence of the track initially saw Ye using it to diss the OVO head honcho. Yet, the stem player features West’s original verse, previously cited by Tyler, The Creator as “warm and true [and] pretty.”
Along with the return of 3 Stacks, Kid Cudi‘s guest appearance on the Young Thug-assisted “Remote” has also been included. “Never Abandon Your Family” — a track heard throughout the Donda listening events — has also become available on the stem player, as well as the unreleased Jesus Is King-era track “Up From the Ashes.”

Ye’s revolutionary device is the first of many products planned for his YZY empire, as the rapper-mogul filed a slew of trademarks for the future production of DONDA-branded tech. The trademark holdings include rights for items like wireless headphones, smart watches, decorative magnets, tablet computers, audio speakers and much more.
