After a long hiatus and millions of people and companies canceling him, it seems Kanye West still hasn’t learned a thing or two.
The singer who got slammed for his problematic stances and statements, is now here with a new album ‘Vultures‘ and it’s as problematic as his past stances. Read on to know how his listening party got dismissed because of one such statement.
Kanye West’s Livestream Cuts Off Mid-Song
Kanye West‘s new album ‘Vultures‘ with Ty Dolla $ign, the two of who make up the super duo called ¥$, had a livestream listening party on the 8th of February.
The long-awaited album has features from a lot of big names in the industry. Throughout 2023, the album was being teased by both artists, with its first tracklist released in December 2023.
During the listening party however, West’s song “Venue Restrictions” was playing when the lyrics “And I’m still crazy, bipolar, antisemite/ And I’m still the king” came out. Immediately after the word ‘antisemite’ played, the livestream was cut off.

It’s unclear if this was done on purpose or if it was merely a wonderful coincidence. Soon after though, the livestream resumed as West was joined by his and Kim Kardashian‘s daughter North West and Ty himself.

Kanye West Struggling To Find Arenas To Perform
Kanye West is still suffering from his past mistakes as he recently revealed that he is finding it difficult to find any arenas to play at because of his history of controversial stances.
West has been openly antisemitic and has shown praise for Hitler. He has also stated that slavery is a choice and started a ‘White Lives Matter‘ campaign. Apart from that, he has also indulged in bullying Taylor Swift, and later on, his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s then-boyfriend Pete Davidson.
In a video posted by him, he is pleading his fans to help him book an arena to play in. He stated that arenas keep telling him that there’s no availability for him, followed by him saying “and you know why that is” referring to his past controversies.

In the video he says, “We just sold out the United Center in seven minutes, and I just want to express to everybody out there to see if it’s anyone that can help with this. It’s the only arena that I had access to in the past year. And when I call, people say there are no avails for me and you know why that is. So if there’s anybody out there that can help with this, please do.”
In another post, he wrote, “I have not been allowed to perform in a year. Feels like the Elvis Presley movie.”
