The 47-year-old rapper disclosed his desire to retire in a conversation with fellow artist Rich The Kid, who shared a screenshot of their exchange on his Instagram Story on Tuesday, July 9.

“I am retiring from professional music. Not sure what else to do,” read a text from the rapper, whose real name is Ye, according to Uproxx. Rich The Kid pushed back against West’s retirement plans, urging him to release the second installment of his and Ty Dolla $ Ign’s collaborative album, titled Vultures 2.

In response, Rich The Kid wrote, “Retire? Why? How? The ppl NEED you. The music you & Ty & I have made was the BIGGEST STAMP in culture to this date in 2024. Drop Ye about mine & V2 and we do it all over again. The kids need you big bra fasho. Maybe some time to chill, but retiring ain’t it,” he insisted.

Kanye West has made headlines for a series of controversial remarks, public meltdowns, and his marriage to former employee Bianca Censori in recent years. Despite these controversies, his influence on the music industry remains significant.

The Grammy winner last released music with Ty Dolla $ign in January, leaving fans eagerly awaiting the second part of the album. West’s potential retirement would mark a significant shift in the music landscape, given his longstanding impact and prolific career.

West’s career has been marked by both immense success and significant turmoil. His innovative approach to music and fashion has earned him a dedicated following, while his outspoken nature and personal struggles have often placed him at the center of public debate.

Rich The Kid’s response highlights the impact West’s music has had on the industry and the cultural void his retirement could create. The encouragement from his peers and fans underscores the hope that West will continue to contribute to the music scene, even if he decides to take a step back temporarily.
