Kanye West has had a tumultuous life where friendships and rivalries have danced hand in hand, creating a mosaic of controversy. Ye, adept at both nurturing alliances and sparking feuds, has witnessed some conflicts linger while others found resolution. A noteworthy example is the reconciled bond with Kid Cudi.

Cudi has returned to the music scene with his latest album, ‘Insano’. Sharing a screenshot of Cudi’s track ‘Electrowave Baby,’ Ye’s promotional fervor did not stop there. Only hours after shooting a music video, Ye’s next story featured a shout-out to Mike Dean. Dean, a longstanding producer for Ye’s albums, including ‘Graduation,’ is set to perform live at Wiltern, LA. Furthermore, Ye celebrated this moment by resharing a post from Bigun Limited on his Instagram story.

The reported trio comprising of Ye, Kid Cudi, and Mike Dean had previously collaborated under the name ‘Cudi Montage’ back in 2018. The dynamics within this trio hold a unique history, with Dean having experienced a reported fallout with Ye in the past. However, it seems that Ye is now crafting a masterpiece by mending old ties with his allies. Kanye West has been reportedly immersed in shooting the music video for ‘Fuk Sumn.’

In the ever-evolving saga of ‘Vultures, the release date underwent yet another shift, causing ripples of anticipation among fans. Initially slated for release on December 15, then pushed to December 31, and most recently rescheduled to January 19, the album continued to play hide-and-seek with its debut. Amidst the uncertainty, a representative for Ye confirmed to Forbes that the album had, at one point, lost its release date entirely earlier this month.

Despite the delay, the lead single, the eponymous ‘Vultures’ featuring Lil Durk and Bump J, managed to make its mark. It secured the eighth position on Billboard’s Bubbling Under 100 chart. Ty Dolla $ign shared the tracklist last month giving a glimpse into the 18 songs that await their turn in the spotlight, featuring a star-studded ensemble of artists like Future, Young Thug, Playboi Carti, Chris Brown, Quavo, and a confirmed guest appearance from Timberland on the unreleased track ‘Timbo Freestyle.’
