Amid the tumultuous rollout of Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s ‘Vultures’, navigating through the intricacies of finalizing details and addressing clearance issues, Ye’s musical comeback has been encountering successive setbacks. Earlier, Nicki Minaj’s denying clearance for ‘New Body’ flared massive controversies. However, now, another set of conflicts has recently emerged, all credit to North West. In a surprising wake of events, North recently shared a 2015 snap with Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, and Ye, making fans speculate about its connection with the track clearance.

North West recently took to her social to share a picture with Kardashian, West, and Minaj at the Alexander Wang Fashion Show in 2015. In the snap, Nicki Minaj is seen offering her hands to a toddler North while the parents look all smiles. Although Kim and North are certified Minaj fangirls, the out-of-the-blue throwback post stirred some anticipation about whether Ye’s daughter is now shouldering the responsibility of bringing Minaj on the boat of ‘Vultures’.

Last year, a massive uproar went down after Minaj refused to be on board with ‘New Body’ for ‘Vultures. While the Trinidadian rapper cued with the idea of that train having left the station, West was quite dazed by the abrupt denial. However, Ye’s response to the rejection did not sit well with the fans, and an online thread of backlash soon ensued. But now that the unexpected flashback has surfaced through North, new strings of anticipation seem almost inevitable.

Kanye West’s steadfastness in bringing Nicki Minaj on board with ‘Vultures’ was never this compelling before North’s post. By all indications, it feels that the daughter might be finally taking the helm of projecting the best of the record industry in the upcoming drop. Although the real intentions might tally the other way, fans do not seem to nudge from the speculations.

With most of the thread accounting for coincidental anticipations, the fan theories might hold some weight. Other than that, it could be just merely a throwback picture of the “craziest childhood”.
