Kanye West has made headlines again with a fiery rant at a listening party for his upcoming joint album, Vultures, with Ty Dolla $ign. The event took an unexpected turn when Ye went off on a tangent, mentioning Jay-Z, Zionists, and even Adolf Hitler.
Kanye West Sounds Off
During the morning of Dec. 15, Ye went on a rant at the Las Vegas listening party for his album, Vultures, which was broadcast on influencer YesJulz’s Instagram Live.
The controversial rapper took the opportunity to express his frustrations and grievances, targeting various individuals and groups. One of his main targets was his former business partner Adidas, whom he accused of attempting to “cancel” him:
“Y’all ain’t stop that Adidas s**t,” Ye said in part. “Y’all n*ggas let Adidas crash the richest n*gga of all time. I put up one tweet and then Ari Emanuel put, ‘Oh we gotta drop this n***a,’ and all n*ggas just watched. The only n*gga that had the Trump hat. The only n*gga that went and got them billions. The only n*gga that break through all kinds of ideas in fashion. I’ve been called a f**got so many times for tight jeans. I got n***as from Chicago that I take care of that still try to sell me.”
‘Who You Think The Old Man Call?’
In addition to his grievances against Adidas, Kanye West delved into a range of topics during his rant. He proclaimed himself as one of the most influential figures in the world, confidently stating:
“Jesus Christ, [Adolf] Hitler, Ye. Third party, sponsor that.”
The “I Love It” rapper went on to express his belief that Zionists control significant aspects of the world, including hospitals, schools, banks, and other industries.
During his verbal tirade, Ye also name-dropped rappers such as Jay-Z and Drake, expressing disappointment over their lack of support throughout the years. He vocally called them out, saying:
“Who you think the old man call? When we put Drake on stage, who you think the old man call? You know what I’m saying. N*gga, just ’cause I had a car, n*gga. Fuck everybody, n*gga.”
Ye Expresses More Disappointment
Notably, Kanye West also revisited his previous controversial comments about Jewish people made in October 2022. He expressed his disappointment that no Black celebrities defended him during that time, stating, “Not one n**ga stepped up.”
The reaction to Ye’s rant on social media was divided. Some users praised his honesty and perceived truthfulness, while others criticized his disjointed and self-centered delivery. One user, @Steph_Lyon13, commented, “Ye the truth… y’all ain’t gonna see it, but hey, not everyone gotta be awoken.”
However, another user, @Kev_Campbell, dismissed the rant as narcissistic and unsuitable for any meaningful argument. The listening party itself faced disruptions, with the event being shut down at a Las Vegas warehouse and moved to a hotel suite.

Kanye West & Ty Dolla Sign’s Italy Show Uncertain Amid Controversy and Permit Issues
Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s highly anticipated joint concert in Italy may not be happening as previously planned. The event, which was supposed to take place on October 27 at RCF Arena, has faced several obstacles that now cast doubt on its occurrence.
Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign fans may be disappointed. Their highly anticipated joint concert in Italy may happen differently than planned.
According to Billboard, the concert was never officially confirmed, and the concert stage has been dismantled. Ye has returned to the United States with his wife, Bianca Censori, indicating that the show may no longer be going ahead.
The controversy surrounding Ye is believed to be one of the reasons why the concert has been thrown into uncertainty. His past social media rants, labeled anti-Semitic, have sparked backlash from local feminists and anti-fascist associations in Italy.
These groups have raised objections to his presence in the country and likely contributed to the complications surrounding the event.
Furthermore, the concert venue, RCF Arena, has encountered permit issues, which have hindered the construction of the stage. It has been reported that necessary permits were not obtained by the mid-October deadline, thereby stalling the preparations for the show.
As of now, Ye or Ty Dolla $ign have yet to address the status of their joint album or if they plan to reschedule the show in the United States or elsewhere.
