Kanye West Falls For Fake Of ‘Vultures 1’ At Trump Rally Leave a comment


Kanye West has fallen for a deep fake of a Vultures 1 track playing at a campaign rally for former President Donald Trump.

Early on Sunday (February 18), Ye took to Instagram to share a video of the former Commander in Chief entering a campaign rally to the song “CARNIVAL,” captioning the now-deleted post: “This made me smile.”

The only problem: the video wasn’t real. The song that was actually played during the clip in question was “Gold Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood, a far cry from anything in Kanye’s discography.

Check out the impressive fake video below.

Outside of fake videos, Vultures 1 has had its fair share of controversy.

In an Instagram Story post from earlier this month, the estate of disco legend Donna Summer — who died in 2012 — said that West didn’t obtain permission for the use of “I Feel Love,” the 1977 classic track co-written by Summer, producer Giorgio Moroder, and Peter Bellotte.

“Kanye West asked permission to use Donna Summer song, ‘I Feel Love,’ [but] he was denied,” the post read. “He changed the words, had someone re-sing it, or used AI but it’s ‘I Feel Love’…copyright infringement!”

The story posted by the Summer estate tagged Ozzy Osbourne’s wife, Sharon, in the post — seeming to allude to the Black Sabbath singer’s similarly lodged complaint against West, in which he accused the rapper of using a live sample of “Iron Man” after being denied the right to do so.

Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign also allegedly failed to receive permission from the Backstreet Boys to use the anthem “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” for their new song of nearly the same name.

Not everyone is hating on Vultures, though. In fact, the album has reportedly saved a life.

According to The San Francisco Chronicle, Mike Petkov from San Francisco, CA, got lost while he was up in the mountains in Kirkwood, but he happened to be listening to the album while he was lost.

“I thought I was getting into one of those cool backside areas where, if I got stuck, I’d be fine,” he explained. “I purposefully didn’t look at the trail map too much because I’ve had a lot of fun exploring [ski areas] and seeing where the day takes me.”

Unfortunately, he lost his cell service along the way. When he finally was able to get reception, he sent his friends the coordinates to his location — but he couldn’t get rescued until the next day.

That’s when he began playing “Beg Forgiveness” from the Vultures 1 album, and explained how he kept repeating, “You’ve gone too far and you should hang your head in shame/ Don’t die/ Don’t die” to stay alive.
