Unsanctioned samples and controversy: Kanye West’s ‘Vultures’ is two days out from release

Brace yourselves for the drop of Kanye West’s collab with Ty Dolla $ign – the curiously titled ‘Vultures’

Kanye West’s upcoming 11th album drop, ‘Vultures,’ is on the horizon, featuring a collab with Ty Dolla $ign, and a surprising debut – his daughter North rapping a verse.

The album launch was attended by Kanye’s wife, Bianca Censori, and Kanye’s kids, Chicago and Saint (with whom he shares custody with Kim Kardahsian). Yet, the event’s buzz it seems was overshadowed by Kanye’s questionable choice to sport a controversial black Ku Klux Klan-style hood.

Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign, hosted a lively listening party for their upcoming ‘Vultures’ album in Miami. Despite being labeled a “rave,” the event encountered technical glitches during its online livestream, as reported by various sources, including The New York Times and Variety (watch the TMZ listening party video here).

In the midst of the swirling controversy, a pivotal track named ‘Everybody’ takes center stage – a nostalgic homage to the boy band era, sampling the Backstreet Boys’ 1997 anthem, ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).’

Just when it seemed all was set, TMZ is whispering rumors that Kanye might have skipped a step in securing clearance for the Backstreet Boys’ sample.

Now, we find ourselves in a peculiar limbo as we await the release date. The clash of Kanye’s antics and the unsanctioned Backstreet Boys’ sample could either be the album’s shining moment or its potential downfall.

With the December 15 deadline approaching, we’ll have to wait and see if the entirety of the album sees the light of day.

The big question: Can Kanye sort out the legal tangle in time, or will the drama overshadow the much-anticipated release?

As the clock ticks down, we’re all eagerly awaiting how this wild chapter in Kanye West’s story unfolds.
