Kanye West, TY Dolla $ign and Lil Durk’s “Vultures” Collaboration

One of Alamo Records’ finest artists, Lil Durk, was featured on Kanye West’s “Vultures.” The entertainers thrilled their Dubai fans with the new song at Blu Dubai nightclub. TY Dolla Sign and Bump J — the other feature artists, were part of the performance.

TMZ reported that Kanye West intends to bring in Lil Durk as his own artist to work on an album. Before then, he talked with Todd Moscowitz, Alamo Records CEO, to release the rapper for another collaboration. However, the request was denied, and now, Kanye wants to take Lil Durk off the record label.

Kanye West’s “Vultures” Performance Stirred Controversy

While the new track titled Vultures might have given his Dubai audience the thrills, Kanye has received criticism from the US. The rapper who is most famous for his unapologetic anti-semitic remarks might have shaded the Jews in some way.

Following a viral clip showing the Dubai performance, people in the US have called for him to be cancelled. This was because Kanye rapped to the song and said, “How I’m anti-semitic? I just [expletives] a Jewish bitch.”

Businesswoman Tanya Zukerbort of Jewish roots fired at Kanye. She also attacked Chris Brown, who was spotted dancing to the song like everyone else.

Tons of observers shared sentiments similar to Zuckerbrot’s. They shamed the rapper for being anti-semitic with his lyrics. While Kanye’s camp has kept mute, Chris Brown defended himself via an Instagram statement.

The singer maintains that he will not be associated with anti-semitism while adding, “I’m pro-life, and I make music for the entire world. Chris Brown later warned the naysayers. ” Trying to be peaceful, but please do not wake up the demon in me,” he quipped.
