Kanye West’s ‘Vultures’ Album Concert Sells Out In 7 Minutes

Kanye West has boasted about remaining at the top of the music industry, almost a year after being "cancelled" for using antisemitic insults in many social media postings and interviews.

During Thursday's listening party for his new "vultures" album at the United Center in Chicago, West presented his new tracks in front of a crowded audience while dressed in all black and sporting a Jason Voorhees mask.

In one song, he raps, "And I'm still crazy, bipolar, antisemite / And I'm still the king."

Almost immediately as the Grammy winner, 46, spoke the word "king," the stream went black and silent.

It is unclear whether the conduct was intentional, given West's questionable history of antisemitism, or a coincidence.

However, the broadcast was finally restarted, allowing fans to see visits by Ye's partner Ty Dolla $ign and her 10-year-old daughter, North, also known as Miss Westie.

The event happened a few days after "Ye" took to Instagram to ask for help booking venues following his antisemitic outbursts.

"I have not been allowed to perform in a year," he said in a now-deleted post. 

"Feels like the Elvis Presley movie."

West said he could only confirm a booking at the United Center in Chicago, his birthplace.

"We just sold out the United Center in seven minutes, and I just wanted to reach out to everyone out there to ask if anyone could help with this. "It was the only arena I had access to in the last year," he claimed in a now-deleted video statement on Tuesday.

"And when I call, people say there are no avails for me, and you know why that is," Ye added, implying he has been banned as a result of his contentious rants and posts.

"So if there's anybody out there that can help with this, please do."

Hours later, the father of four said that he had been granted permission to book venues such as UBS Arena in Elmont, NY, where he is slated to perform on Friday for another "Vultures" event.

West's notorious antisemitic rants began in October 2022, when he tweeted that he would "go death con 3 ON JEWISH PEOPLE" before having his social media accounts banned and/or removed.

In December, the Yeezy founder openly lauded Adolf Hitler, stating that he sees "good things" in the late Nazi Party leader who was responsible for the Holocaust.

West apparently made a 40-minute apologetic video to the Jewish community for his previous remarks.
