In a harmonious blend of hip-hop prowess, Wiz Khalifa has raised his voice in applause for fellow artists Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign. Their collaborative masterpiece, "Vultures 1," has soared to the pinnacle of the Billboard 200 chart, marking a historic moment for both musicians.

The first installment in the Vultures trilogy, "Vultures 1," has catapulted to the coveted No. 1 spot, amassing an impressive 148,000 equivalent album units during its debut week. The album's magnetic fusion of West's visionary production and Ty Dolla Sign's lyrical finesse has struck a chord with fans worldwide. And Wiz Khalifa? Well, he's super hype for Ty—and who wouldn't be?

Wiz Khalifa's twitter shoutout

Taking to Twitter, Wiz Khalifa shared his elation:

"I'm super hype for Ty. "


The tweet reverberated across the digital soundscape, resonating with fans who've been eagerly awaiting this musical collaboration. The Vultures trilogy, with its undeniable groove, has become the soundtrack of our collective vibe.

A rocky climb to the top

But the journey to the mountaintop wasn't without its twists and turns. The joint album faced a brief hiccup when it was temporarily removed from Apple Music due to a "service agreement" violation. Fear not, though—the digital download option remains, and physical copies are slated for release in the near future. As Ye himself put it, "It's a beautiful time."

Wiz vs. Ye: A brief history

Let's rewind to 2016, when Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West engaged in a Twitter tussle. It all started with Kanye's album title switcheroo—from "Waves" to "The Life of Pablo". Wiz, ever the wordsmith, challenged Ye's claim to the "wavy" movement, which had roots in New York rapper Max B. The waves were real, and Wiz wasn't backing down.

The infamous "KK" tweet

Then came the infamous "Hit this kk and become yourself" tweet. Kanye misread it as a jab at his wife, Kim Kardashian, but Wiz was simply promoting his own Khalifa Kush weed brand. The Twitterverse erupted, and even Amber Rose waded into the fray. Ye's apology followed, but the tension lingered.

Now, as Wiz Khalifa showers praise on "Vultures 1," we glimpse a potential evolution in his relationship with Kanye. In a 2016 interview, Wiz hinted that their beef wasn't entirely squashed. But perhaps music has bridged the gap. As the Vultures soar, we witness a harmonious symphony—a testament to the power of collaboration.
