Controversial American rapper and fashion mogul, Kanye West, is reportedly planning to release a 40-minute apology video for his antisemitic remarks.

He will release the apology video ahead of his upcoming album Vultures, a collaboration with singer and producer Ty Dolla $ign.

TMZ reported that West hired a camera crew to film him apologizing directly to the camera several weeks ago.

However, the website also claimed that the video is “rambling” and “hard to follow”, as West jumps from one topic to another without a clear structure or message.

The video is expected to be released before Vultures, which is slated to drop on February 9, after being pushed back several times since last year.

The album, which features guest appearances from artists such as Rihanna, Drake, and Kid Cudi, is said to be a departure from West’s previous work, incorporating elements of pop, R&B, and soul.

Kanye West has faced backlash from the Jewish community and others for his antisemitic comments in the past.

Last month, West issued a public apology to the Jewish community in Hebrew, saying that he was sorry for any “unintended outburst” caused by his words or actions. He also said that he was committed to learning from his experience and promoting unity.

However, some critics have questioned the sincerity and effectiveness of West’s apology, especially in light of his erratic behavior and history of mental health issues.
