Kanye West Retires from ‘Professional Music,’ Says Rich the Kid

According to Rich the Kid, the 47-year-old rapper/producer has supposedly announced his retirement from music, albeit it is unclear what this includes or if the decision is official.

Rich the Kid, 31, tweeted a snapshot of a text discussion with West (now known as Ye) on Tuesday, July 9, but he has since removed it. In the chat, West said, “I am retiring from professional music.” He gave no explanation. The artist just dropped the bombshell that he is “not sure what else to do” musically.

Rich The Kid swiftly revealed on X that he would be releasing new songs with West on his next album, Life’s a Gamble, shortly after posting the screenshotted-texts. “Actually, we are dropping this Friday 7/19,” he added, confirming the date of the project’s release.

The album’s track listing states that there will be a collaboration with West called “Plain Jane” soon, in addition to the previously released song “Gimme a Second 2” featuring Peso Pluma and Ty Dolla $ign.

There’s also the single “Carnival” with Playboi Carti and Ty Dolla $ign, 42, which is on the latter’s joint Vultures 1 album with West, which was released in February. In the month that followed, it reached its highest position on the Billboard Hot 100.

West’s rumored retirement declaration comes weeks after he and Ty Dolla $ign were set to release their follow-up effort, Vultures 2, on Friday, May 3. The 2024 BET Award for Best Group was given to the duo because of their debut album together.

In a recent Instagram post, Ty Dolla $ign announced that on Friday, Aug. 23, the duo will take their Vultures listening experience to Korea. Their follow-up project, however, has no set release date and its execution is uncertain. However, according to Ty Dolla $ign’s latest Billboard cover story, Vultures 2 is almost finished and may be released at any moment.
