Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign are yet to release the “Vulture” album, and fans are growing impatient by the day.

The album, which has been surrounded by controversy, is set to be boycotted by a cross-section of people, given West’s fervent anti-Semitism stance

As this isn’t the first time the album’s release date has been postponed, it comes as a surprise that his fans are upset over the current situation. The most recent announcement has, however, pegged the planned release date for January 12, 2024.

This was, nonetheless, followed up with another notice by West’s spokesman, which indicated that the album no longer has a release date. 

Another school of thought holds the opinion that the album may be completely scrapped, but insiders have argued that this isn’t the case. 

Per a report by HipHopDZ, one of such people is Malik Yusef, who recently informed fans on social media that vocals are being re-recorded and as such, the album would eventually be released.

In other news, efforts have been made to rank West’s albums in a bid to determine which comes out top as the best-selling album of all time.

His early venture into the industry was marked by the release of The College Dropout. It was an album that challenged the prevailing norms of hip-hop with its soulful samples and introspective lyrics. 

However, the subsequent albums saw West climbing the commercial ladder with a speed matched only by his creative ambition. 

The albums The Life of Pablo and Yeezus departed from conventional success metrics, as they offered a more fragmented, experimental sound. 

However, it is My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that emerges as a strong contender for his best-selling album. 

Launched in 2010, the album dominated the charts, as it captured the imagination of both critics and fans alike.

Graduation is not just a high-water mark in his career for its innovative sound but also for its commercial success. Debuting at No.1 on the US Billboard 200, it sold over 957,000 copies in its first week. It was a testament to West’s growing popularity at the time.
