Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign’s highly anticipated listening party for their new album Vultures in Chicago took an unexpected turn yesterday, marred by technical difficulties that led to a premature end of the livestream. While some speculate that the abrupt cut was due to Kanye’s controversial lyrics, others attribute it to the event running longer than planned.

However, the disappointment didn’t end there for fans. Today, legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne took to Twitter to publicly criticize Kanye, accusing him of using a sample of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” without permission. In his tweet, Ozzy stated that Kanye had requested to sample a section of a 1983 live performance of “War Pigs” from the US Festival but was denied permission. Despite the refusal, Kanye allegedly used the sample at his album listening party, prompting Ozzy to disassociate himself from the rapper.

Ozzy’s sentiments were echoed by his wife, Sharon Osbourne, who expressed her outrage to TMZ. Sharon revealed that Kanye had reached out three weeks prior to request permission to use the sample, but their response was a firm “Absolutely not.” She emphasized that it’s rare for Ozzy to reject such requests but noted that this was a special circumstance.

In a scathing rebuke, Sharon referred to Kanye as “a disrespectful antisemite” and accused him of “representing hate.” She disclosed that she and Ozzy have sent Kanye a cease and desist order and want no further involvement with him.

The fallout from Kanye’s unauthorized use of the sample has sparked controversy, with fans and critics alike weighing in on the debacle. As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen how Kanye will respond to the Osbournes’ condemnation and what repercussions may follow.
