Kanye West's return to the music scene comes with his latest track, 'Vultures,' featuring Ty Dolla Sign and Lil Durk. This release follows a tumultuous period marked by controversial comments and social media messages, which significantly impacted his career.
DJ Pharris premiered 'Vultures' on Chicago's Power 92 during a Friday night show. The song includes provocative lyrics addressing West's previous controversies head-on, including a line that stirred attention: "How am I antisemitic? I just f****d a Jewish b***h."
In addition to addressing his past comments, West seems to take aim at his former manager Scooter Braun and makes references to the Columbine shooting within the song.
The rapper faced a series of setbacks after a troubled appearance on Alex Jones' "Infowars" talk show, where he praised Hitler and made offensive remarks about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This incident, part of a broader period filled with antisemitic comments, led to severe consequences, including Twitter banning him, Adidas ending their business ties, talent agency CAA dropping him as a client, and MRC canceling a planned documentary about him. West even mentioned losing $2 billion in a day due to repercussions from his hate speech.
Despite the controversies, Ty Dolla Sign disclosed a collaborative full-length album in the works with Kanye West, indicating an ongoing musical partnership between the two artists.
