Kanye West references antisemitism scandal in new single
Los Angeles, California - Kanye West has released the first new music since seemingly destroying his career in late 2022 after making a string of antisemitic comments in which he praised Hitler and shared troubling Jewish conspiracy theories.
On Wednesday West returned with a new single, Vultures, which is a collab with Grammy winner Ty Dolla $ign and rapper Bump J.
His new song, Vultures, discusses the scandal in ultra-direct Kanye fashion.
"How I’m antisemitic? I just f***ed a Jewish b****," West raps in the single.
The track also references his former manager Scooter Braun – I just f***ed Scooter’s b****" – before Ye goes on to reference the Columbine massacre and Russia's bloody war against Ukraine.
While the comeback track premiered several days ago on a Chicago radio station, it wasn't immediately available for fans to buy and stream until almost a week later on Wednesday.
The streaming edit notably doesn't feature the verse by rapper Lil Durk as was heard in the earlier radio version, a fact that fans are salty about.
Vultures doesn’t list a record label on Spotify, so the song appears to be independently released.
