After several setbacks, various reports on Tuesday (Jan.23) announced the highly-anticipated Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign joint album, Vultures, will be released as a three-part album with the first volume arriving February 9.






The second and third volumes of the album are revealed to be released on March 8 and April 5. West released a Jon Rafman-directed trailer to accompany the album release announcement.

The joint album includes guest appearances by Lil Durk, Kodak Black, Freddie Gibbs, and Kanye West’s daughter North West. The album was originally scheduled to be released last Decemeber; however, was delayed due majorly to clearance issues.

Kanye West has been very vocal about artists like Nicki Minaj, Backstreet Boys, and more not signing off on sample clearances. Kanye albums have a long history of delays. Vultures will be the first album by West not released on Def Jam Recordings.
