Vultures 1 gets a 7/10

Kanye West’s collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign VULTURES 1 his thirteenth album. All sixteen songs consist of various artists including Bum J, Lil Durk, Playboi Carti, Rich The Kid, and many more. Each song has a different vibe/aura and talks about something new, whether that’s his life or the world.

“Stars” – In this song West paints a picture of success, fame, and achieving greatness, as well as passing expectations and stopping anything from holding him back. The overall message, flow, and sound of the song are good.

“Keys to My Life” – His second song dives into the twist and turns of a romantic relationship. The aspects of a relationship he talks about are loyalty and betrayal from his partner. “Thought I was the only one, how dare you have a guy in your house eatin’ Papa Johns? Where you get that money from?” These lyrics show the moment he found out his partner was unfaithful. After he talks about emotional support.

“Burn” – In this song Kanye dives into the subjects of love, consequences and materialism. Kanye talks about his struggles and how other people make money off of his name.

“Problematic” – In the first song on the album, “Stars,” Kanye talks about success and fame. In this song he talks about the consequences that come with it. As we’ve seen in the past, Kanye West is very unapologetic and this song highlights that. He looks at himself as a significant person who has a lot of influence, which is true. “That Pope like the leader of the Vati-can / He do it again.” After he talks about his problems in the media. His outspoken personality causes many problems.

“Carnival” – In his entire album this song is mostly known and regarded as the best. With features from Rich the Kid, Ty Dolla $ign, and Playboi Carti, the song has different sounds and vibes, something that is very difficult to pull off.

Vultures 1 gets a seven out of ten because I know he could produce better music. The album isn’t bad, but the previous albums he produced were great. His sound has changed as the years have gone on, as most artists’ do. His new sound is still good, just not what it used to be.
