Kanye West had been branded 'vile' and 'sickening' for the lyrics of his new song as he makes a return to music.
The rapper - who now formally goes by Ye - completely derailed his career last year after a string of antisemitic remarks online, including comments declaring that he 'likes Adolf Hitler' and has an admiration for the Nazis, as well as posting an image of a swastika inside the Star of David - which saw him get kicked off X (formerly Twitter).
His account was locked prior to that when he hit out against Jewish people in a series of antisemitic tweets, in which he said he would soon go 'death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE'.
Following the horrific comments, Ye was dropped by his agency CAA and a number of brands including Adidas, which announced it had cut ties with the rapper after a nearly decade-long partnership.
It's a move that would cost the company 250 million euros ($246 million) that year, and see West lose a staggering amount of wealth.
A year on from the months-long media rampage, West appears to be making a return to music with his new track 'Vultures', which has prompted some serious backlash online for its 'vile' and 'antisemitic' lyrics.

West seemingly addressed last year's controversy directly as he raps: "How am I antisemitic? I just f**ked a Jewish b*tch.”
The song - which features Ty Dolla Sign and Lil Durk - could also be heard in a now-viral video of West dancing to the track at a party - reportedly in Dubai - alongside fellow celebrities including Chris Brown, Ty and Bump J.
“What’s more sickening? The lyrics … Or the fact that both Kanye West and @chrisbrownofficial find it hysterical?” Jewish businesswoman Tanya Zuckerbrot wrote on her Instagram account.
“Sick, masochistic, antisemitic f**ks.”
While others declared the track 'vile' and 'disgusting'.
"This vile display is beyond sickening," said another appalled viewer, while a third branded the display 'trash'.
"Shame on you!!!!", a fourth declared.
Elsewhere in the new track, Ye appears to call out his former manager Scooter Braun as he raps: “I just fucked Scooter’s b*tch”, as well as referencing the Columbine high school shooting, which saw 15 killed.
UNILAD has contacted reps for both Kanye West and Chris Brown for comment.
