In a move that could only be scripted in the outlandish world of hip-hop, Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s latest stunt has hit a wall, and not just any wall, but the firm denial of the Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, Florida. The duo’s grandiose plan for a “Vultures Rave” on December 12 was swiftly shot down, leaving their ambitious, if not overly audacious, plans in tatters.
A spokesperson from Sawgrass Mills didn’t mince words when it came to shutting down this rumor-turned-publicity stunt. “No, there’s no event, no performance,” they stated unequivocally to the Miami New Times. This denial came as a cold shower to the hype that had been building up, especially after Ty Dolla $ign had gone to town promoting this event on social media.
Located near the vibrant city of Miami, Sawgrass Mills seemed an unlikely venue for such an event from the start. The management of the mall was quick to dismiss the so-called “Vultures Rave” as nothing but a figment of social media speculation. “Rumors have been circulating… This is simply not true,” the mall’s management declared, quashing any lingering hopes of this rumored event turning into reality.
The speculation about this rave kicked off after Kanye was spotted popping up at various spots around Miami, adding fuel to the fire. He was reportedly previewing songs from his joint album with Ty Dolla $ign, titled ‘Vultures’, at Miami’s Dukunoo Jamaican Kitchen. Clips of these new tracks made their way onto social media, further stirring up the excitement among fans.
Ty Dolla $ign had previously announced the “Vultures Rave” in an Instagram post, claiming it would take place at midnight on December 12 at Sawgrass Mills. Kanye even extended an invite to Playboi Carti, according to Carti’s Instagram Stories, but like many of Kanye’s grand plans, it seemed more fantasy than fact.
This failed event adds another chapter to Kanye’s saga of controversies and unfulfilled promises. His last project, the incomplete ‘Donda 2’, was only released on the Stem Player and never saw a complete version hit the public domain. His collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, ‘Vultures’, was claimed to drop on December 15, but given Kanye’s track record with release dates, skepticism remains high.
While Ty Dolla $ign did share a tracklist for the project, fans might be wise to take it with a grain of salt. After all, in the unpredictable world of Kanye West, promises and plans often vanish just as quickly as they appear. As for the “Vultures Rave,” it seems to have gone up in smoke, much like many of Ye’s recent ventures.
