Kanye West denies being antisemitic on new single with Ty Dolla $ign

Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, and Ty Dolla $ign have released their debut single as supergroup ¥$, "Vultures."


On the track, which also features Bump J, Ye addresses the series of public anti-semitic remarks he made last year, which included sharing a swastika on social media and praising Hitler in an interview with far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.


"How I'm anti-Semitic? I just fucked a Jewish bitch," Ye raps on the second verse of "Vultures," which released Wednesday.


On the third verse, the "All Falls Down" rapper then makes a crude pun which references the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.




According to Donda Streams, "Vultures" received more than 2 million streams on Spotify on the day of its release.


It is unclear whether the song will feature on Ye and Ty Dolla $ign's upcoming collaborative album.


As a result of his antisemitic tirade last year, Ye was temporarily banned from Twitter and a number of his business partners, most notably Adidas, ended their relationships with him.


Talent agency CAA also dropped Ye as a client and film and television studio MRC axed a planned documentary about him.


"Vultures" is the first song Ye has released since the controversy.
