Todd Rundgren gives NO f**ks!The legendary performer is being inducted into theRock and Roll Hall of Famethis year — though he’s making news this week for slamming the induction and saying he willnotattend.More pointed towards our interests, though, theBang The Drum All Day rocker also spoke up this week about working withKanye West on the letter’s newDonda album. And it sounds like Rundgren had a TERRIBLE time!!!Related: Kanye FINALLY Unfollows Kim —AlreadySix Months Into Their Divorce ProceedingsTalking toUltimate Classic Rock about his work with the Chicago-born rapper on the new album named after his beloved late mother, Rundgren didn’t mince words when it came to analyzing Kanye’s recording work.In fact, Rundgren isn’t even sure whether he made it on Yeezy’s album! That’s how much of a mess this whole thing turned out to be!Clearly frustrated with the eccentric creative process exhibited by Kim Kardashian‘s estranged husband, Todd talked a bit about whether you’ll even hear him onDonda:“If I can contribute something, fine. If I cant, just let me know. There is a possibility that Im actually in there somewhere. Theres so much junk in that record!”Damn!!!But OK, artists change their mind sometimes, and so things get altered during the recording process, we suppose. Right?Only that’s not even CLOSE to being the most eye-popping part of the legendary drummer’s remarks!After explaining how he first linked up with Yeezy through music industry mutuals, Todd apparently thought it would be “a fun challenge” to work onDonda. Boy, did he turn out to be wrong.Related: Kanye Allegedly Bragged About ‘F**king Groupies’ During His 2016 Saint Pablo Tour!Looking back at the former presidential candidate’s stunts — and all those bizarre listening parties — the 73-year-old rocker WENT AWF!Seriously, read this:“ is a shoe designer Hes just a dilettante at this point. 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.”Holy s**t!AndDrake looms large in this, too!Todd’s been around the block quite a few times in the music industry, so he understands how art and business work together — or sometimes don’t work together, that is.With that, he believes the threat of Drake’s brand new Certified Lover Boyalbum forced Yeezy into rushingDonda out the door early, and the work suffered severely because of it:“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.”That last sentence!!!YIKES!!!It’s a vicious takedown of theJesus Walks rapper, no doubt. And it’s doubly bad considering the source: Rundgren is a Rock Hall inductee who has for decades worked with and around the biggest, best, and truly most iconic names in music.So, safe to say Todd Rundgrenmight just know a thing or two about which he speaks.Sorry, Kanye! Just saying!What do U think, Perezcious readers?!Sound OFF about Yeezy, Todd,Donda, Drake, and EVERYTHING else here down in the comments !The post Todd Rundgren SLAMS 'Dilettante' Kanye West, Says Rival Drake 'Ate His Lunch' With A Better Album Than <i>Donda</i>! appeared first on Perez Hilton.Perez Hilton
