Is Kanye West done with doing music professionally?

In a text conversation with Rich The Kid, the rap mogul says he’s “retiring from professional music.” He adds that he isn’t sure “what else to do” before his regular collaborator chimes in with some advice.

Rich tells ye that the people need him and that the music they made together on Vultures 1 was “the biggest stamp in culture to this date in 2024.” He then suggests that taking some time off to chill is good but “retiring ain’t it.”

It isn’t very clear what Kanye really means by the text he sent to Rich The Kid. Kanye and Ty recently announced a Vultures listening event at South Korea’s Goyang Stadium next month on the 23rd. Vultures 2 was originally slated to arrive on May 3, but nothing came out that day.

Ty recently told Billboard that the new album was pretty much done. “We got all the songs. Basically, it’s just like, ‘How can we get it there? How can we go bigger than the first album?’” he said. “Certain people will probably expect you to just do the same exact sound. But that sound’s already out.”
