Kanye West, the renowned rapper, producer, and fashion icon, has once again captured the spotlight with the release of his latest album, Vultures 1. The Highlands’ freshman class is buzzing with excitement and anticipation as fans eagerly dive into West’s latest album.

With Vultures 1, Kanye continues to explore the boundaries of hip-hop/rap. The album features a diverse range of tracks, blending elements of rap, R&B, and electronic music to create a unique and immersive listening experience. 

Many mainstream rappers and artists were featured in Vultures. People like freshman Barron Burwick enjoyed the album because of the features. 

“My favorite collab was probably Rich the Kid because it was the best verse on CARNIVAL,” said Burwick.

One standout aspect of “Vultures” is its bold lyricism and themes. Kanye delves deep into personal struggles, societal issues, and the pursuit of fame and fortune. Tracks like “PROBLEMATIC” and “STARS” showcase West’s trademark poetic storytelling, connecting with listeners on a profound level.

In addition to its thought-provoking lyrics, Vultures also showcases impressive production value. Kanye’s amazing attention to detail is evident throughout the album, with lush instrumentation, intricate beats, and innovative soundtracks that keep listeners engaged from start to finish.

What made this drop even better was the anticipation that came from it. Many people didn’t think it would be released. 

Sophomore Morgan Lewis said: “I didn’t think it was ever going to drop, I like the collabs but there should’ve been more songs.” 

Due to the anticipation of this album, people were anxious about when it would drop and were astonished when it finally dropped. 

Though Vultures 1 is understood to be a great album, every album has something it can improve on. 

Freshman Azar Bassett said: “He could have added more songs and made the songs less confusing. Other than that, it was amazing.” 

Lewis said: “The album cover could have been more boisterous.”

Overall, “Vultures” is shaping up to be another milestone in West’s career. Its blend of insightful lyricism, captivating production, and star-studded features will solidify Kanye’s status as one of the most influential artists of our time. Whether you’re a die-hard Kanye fan or just discovering his music for the first time, Vultures is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates innovative and boundary-pushing music.
