Kanye West lost the narrative in 2022 after his constant anti-Semitic rants and attacks on the Jewish people on social media. It all started after he irked the black people with ‘White Lives Matter’ Yeezy shirts. This led to a heavy backlash from the fraternity and fans. Later, he went on a tirade to spew hate against the Jews, and the industry ousted him, affecting his credibility and financial stature.
Before getting canceled in 2022, Kanye West released a grand two-part album titled ‘Donda’. Ye held several listening parties throughout the country before releasing the album. The rapper released part two of the album on Stem Player. Since then, the fans have been waiting for an album. There have been several media reports that he is releasing a joint album with TY Dolla $ign. The ‘Ego Death’ rapper also teased a listening party for the album, but it might be canceled again.

Despite the hurdles, TY Dolla $ign posted an update on his Instagram about the multi-stadium listening event on November 3, 2023. He wrote, against a black background, “¥$ multi stadium listening event November 3rd.” However, there is another postponement reported by a source to Billboard.
