During the latest episode of the podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan and Tony Hinchcliffe touched on the hype building around ‘Vultures.’ Joe Rogan said that Kanye West only needed one album for his return to the music scene and he believes this album would be the one. Rogan described the rapper as a “wild pioneer” who constantly challenges the status quo in music.

Acknowledging the Grammy winner’s controversial nature, he stated “You want him a little crazy”. According to him, creative artists like West always seem to be slightly unhinged, which makes them brilliant. Upon this, the comedian chimed in that the music the ‘Runaway’ singer created was always ahead of time. Hinchcliffe even claimed other musicians would take more time to reach the benchmark he had already made.

In February 2023, Joe Rogan sang praise for Kanye West on his podcast. The UFC commentator defended the ‘Praise God’ singer that he was not a bad person after his hate speech enraged people around the globe. He admitted the producer had made mistakes, but it was because of his unstable mental health. 

The podcaster felt that this unpredictable nature of Ye somehow helped him create music and no one can deny his supremacy over the pop genre. Likewise, the world is again waiting for him to unleash his latest masterpiece ‘Vultures’. Will it be a phoenix rising from the ashes of expectation, or an Icarus plummeting to a fiery demise? Only time, and a good pair of headphones, will tell.
