Utopia is here, but not without a spot of awkwardness. Travis Scott released his fourth album – and follow-up to 2018’s smash hit Astroworld – on Friday, with one song featuring a major shoutout to persona non grata Kanye ‘Ye’ West.

Ye, 46, has been ousted from the spotlight since making a series of public antisemitic comments in late 2022, but Trav’s new song, “Skitzo” with Young Thug shows where his allegiance lies when it comes to the 2024 presidential election. “Crazy how they love to talk sh*t and got no Trident / I’m loyal, b***h, I got Ye over Biden,” Travis raps.

Kanye, Kanye, Kanye… There are so many things that can be said about <a href=””>Kanye West</a>, the rapper/fashion designer/sometimes politician born June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. He first made his mark with the 2004 album ‘The College Dropout’. His following albums include ‘Late Registration’ (2005), ‘Graduation’ (2007), ‘808s & Heartbreak’ (2008), ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ (2010), ‘Yeezus’ (2013), ‘The Life of Pablo’ (2016), and ‘Donda’ (2021). In 2015 he paired up with Adidas on his Yeezy fashion brand, which has been a leader in the apparel and footwear industry. His relationships have been just as prominent as his work. He married <a href=””>Kim Kardashian</a> in 2014 and had 4 kids with the reality star. They would split in early 2021, leading to a string of outbursts from Ye. He also ran in the 2020 Presidential primaries. Here, Kanye West appears at Chance the Rapper’s Magnificent Coloring Day in Chicago on Sep. 20, 2016.

Ahead of the release of Utopia, Genius listed some details about Travis’ track “Delresto,” saying it was produced by Hit-Boy and umro. The track was “recorded on December 8, 2020, during Utopia sessions in Mexico,” per Genius. “Kanye recorded his vocals in June of 2021 for a version that also features James Blake and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Travis confirmed the song’s release for Utopia on July 22, 2023, at his Rolling Loud set where it was displayed along with 4 other titles in the fictional Utopian language from Thomas More’s 1516 book Utopia.”

However, when the track was actually released, Kanye’s vocals weren’t included. Instead, Beyonce was featured on the track. Kanye has writer and/or producer credits on “Delresto,” “Thank God,” “God’s Country,” and “Telekinesis.”

This album is not the first time Ye and La Flame have worked together. Travis appeared on Ye’s “Champions” in 2016, “Wash Us In The Blood” in 2020, and “Praise God” in 2021. Ye joined Travis on 2015’s “Piss On Your Grave,” on 2016’s “In Common (remix),” and on  2018’s “Watch.”

Ye came under fire in October 2022 after tweeting he was going “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” A week later, when he spoke with Piers Morgan, Ye refused to apologize. In the weeks following, Adidas cut ties with Ye and Yeezy Sneakers. He faced condemnation across the board, and his Twitter account was suspended for inciting violence. Since then, Ye has kept a low profile, save for the time he married Bianca Censori in secret (and when he was under investigation for grabbing a woman’s phone.)

Ahead of Utopia‘s release, Travis teamed up with another KarJenner-adjacent individual. Travis, Bad Bunny, and The Weeknd teamed for “K-Pop.” Bad Bunny has been linked to Kylie’s sister, Kendall Jenner, since February 2023.
