Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s ‘Vultures 2’ is arriving soon

Kanye West has announced that the second instalment of his Vultures album series will be released at the beginning of May. Earlier this year, the Chicago musician and Ty Dolla $ign released the highly-anticipated Vultures 1, which featured an appearance from North West and spawned a number one in the form of ‘Carnival’. 

The second and third instalments of Vultures were meant to be released on March 8th and April 5th, respectively. However, the albums have been delayed repeatedly, much to the disappointment of fans.

Earlier this week, in an interview with Justin Laboy for the debut episode of his new podcast, The Download, the host asked Ye about the delays and when fans can expect the project to arrive on streaming platforms. West simply responded,  “It’s coming out May 3rd.”

Laboy then pushed Kanye to reassure fans it was a true statement and that there would be no further delays, to which Kanye responded, “Yeah.” However, the producer has had trouble deciding how to roll out the project.

Last month, the Chicago native told his fans he may not release the second and third instalments of the trilogy on streaming as he makes little money from it and considers it a form of consumption that fans can easily pirate.

Furthermore, upon the release of Vultures 1, the Graduation creator had issues as Apple Music and iTunes pulled the project due to disagreements between Kanye and the album’s distributor.

During the creation of Vultures 1, West had various clashes with Ozzy Osbourne and Donna Summer’s estate surrounding his unapproved use of samples. Osbourne threatened legal action against him, and Summer’s estate eventually filed a lawsuit.

Elsewhere in the interview Kanye West also revealed he remixed the controversial Metro Boomin’ and Future track like that and unveiled that the “elimination of Drake” is good for hip-hop. He also asserted that bothe Drake and Lucian Grand of Universal Music Group have colluded to dominate hip-hop over the years.
