Ye and North hold down “Talking” while Ty and his daughter, Jailynn Griffin, twin in the “Once Again” portion. Kanye unleashed the visual to his Instagram and X accounts on Wednesday morning (Feb. 7), with the Feb. 9 release date of his and Ty Dolla $ign’s Vultures album fast-approaching.
Directed by the D’innocenzo brothers, North raps while getting her hair braided and matches with her father, rocking black threads in the clip that features the earworm of a chorus she debuted at December’s Vultures rave in Miami.
“It’s your bestie, Miss, Miss Westie/ Don’t tryna test me/ It’s gonna get messy/ It’s gonna get messy/ Just, just bless me, bless me,” she raps. In January, Miss Westie and Kanye hinted at her music video debut, as she suggested a treatment that included her driving a Lamborghini to Nobu Malibu and fending off paparazzi.
Ty Dolla $ign takes the baton and gazes at his daughter, Jailynn, before delivering a candid verse about her growing up and hoping he’s raised her correctly.
“How much to stop my daughter from growing? I just can’t take it now/ ‘Cause she just doing all the s–t I did when I was her age/ I don’t know how I’m gonna tell her, but her dad’s just afraid/ Of her choices, know that I’ve been through it/ I just hope I haven’t been the wrong influence,” he warbles.
Kanye gets his croon on and takes the clip across the finish line: “Once again the clouds are gathering to release what they held in.” The final visual is of Ty Dolla $ign’s daughter adorably resting her head on her dad’s shoulder while looking into the camera.
Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign are slated to host another Vultures listening party for volume one of their joint album on Thursday night (Feb. 8) in Ye’s hometown of Chicago at the United Center. Tickets for the event allegedly sold out in seven minutes.
The much-delayed project is scheduled to land on streaming services at some point on Friday (Feb. 9). Vultures will mark the first project for West since his string of hate speech and antisemitic remarks, which resulted in companies such as Adidas and Def Jam distancing themselves from the 46-year-old.
