North West‘s rap career has officially launched … — ’cause her verse on one of Kanye’s tracks just got released … along with a music video that features the kid too.
On Wednesday, Ye dropped his and Ty Dolla Sign’s “Talking/Once Again” music video from their forthcoming “Vultures” album — releasing the music/visuals on social media, and having North front and center on camera … not to mention on the mic.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
The video — directed by The D’Innocenzo Brothers — not only highlights NW’s “your bestie” bars … but it also gives an up-close look at her hair styling routine — as you can see, she’s getting her hair braided in this clip.
She’s not the only famous daughter in the mix here — TD$ also introduces his daughter Jailynn Crystal in the video as he sings about protecting her from the crazy world.
BTW — this is the same song North performed in Miami during Art Basel, where she surprised the crowd and rapped these same lyrics … which she’s definitely proud of. Her appearance on the song also tracks with recent enthusiasm she’s shown as a creative — remember, she hopped on TikTok and laid out her ideas for a music video of her own.
On its face, it appears she might be following in her dad’s footsteps … guess we’ll see!
Anyway, the first installment of Ye and Ty$’s “Vultures” is finally expected to drop Friday — although, it remains to be seen whether it’ll actually hit mainstream streaming services. Ye’s had a hard time finding distribution lately — so it’s unclear who people are gonna listen to this. We’re also not sure if the project will release at all … he’s pushed it back a ton already.

Kanye recently complained he’s being barred from booking venues in his hometown of Chicago … and didn’t rule out it might be because of his past antisemitic remarks. Clearly, that’s all still top of mind for many — which makes getting this project out sorta difficult.
In any case, Ye’s got his little girl right by his side … North obviously loves her father.
While it’s cool to see NW express herself … ya gotta wonder how Mama Bear feels about it herself. Tough situation, no doubt — and probably something they play by ear.
