On Friday (Dec. 15), the X, formerly known as Twitter, account YesJulz tweeted that Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s scheduled Vultures rave event in the Las Vegas desert had been shut down by police.
“Cops shut us down. We are putting another stream up in 20 minutes,” she wrote.
However, the event appeared to resume despite this setback. Videos captured from the rave, in which each ticket cost over $2,000, show Ye and TY$ in tow with multiple rappers including Quavo, Rich The Kid, Playboi Carti, Lil Durk and more. Ye premiered new music off Vultures and again ran through previously unveiled songs that he premiered at the Vultures Miami rave event on Monday (Dec. 11).
Most notably, Kid Cudi and Ye were also seen reuniting at the massive Vultures event. The close collaborators had experienced a massive falling out over Cudder’s relationship with Pete Davidson, who was dating Ye’s now ex-wife. A video below shared on X shows the pair embraced in a hug. Another video shows that the song “Gun to My Head” actually features Kanye’s Kids See Ghosts collaborator.
Fans initially believed that Ye and Ty would drop off their collaborative album on Oct. 6 to compete with Drake’s For All the Dogs album. The album never came, and Ty later informed supports during a November performance that the album was “coming very soon.”
Shortly after Ty Dolla $ign’s announcement, he and Kanye dropped off their lead single “Vultures,” which featured some bars from Bump J. However, a lot of fans were dismayed to find the song didn’t include a guest appearance from Lil Durk, who was initially teased on the record.
During an impromptu performance at Art Basel in Miami, Kanye then said that the album would be dropping on Friday. Vultures still never arrived.
