Kanye West has given fans another taste of his upcoming collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign.

Ye was in attendance at Art Basel in Miami over the weekend, where he played a slew of unreleased music during an impromptu listening session inside a Jamaican restaurant.

Footage of the moment showed the Chicago rapper playing new tracks featuring Future and Young Thug.

Kanye also previewed a song that samples the Backstreet Boys’ 1997 hit “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” along with a track containing a shoutout to Young Thug and YSL amid the ongoing RICO case.

“This one here for YSL, I ain’t talking Saint Lauren,” Ye raps, before adding: “Free Larry [Hoover], free Young Thug/ While we at it, free [Big] Meech.”

The previews come shortly after Ty Dolla $ign revealed a handwritten tracklist for his and Kanye West’s upcoming joint project.

The 18-song tracklist includes the recently released single “Vultures,” which features Lil Durk and Bump J, as well as the long-shelved “New Body,” a track from the 2018 Yandhi era that may feature Nicki Minaj.

Other songs include “Fuk Sumn,” “Beg Forgiveness,” “Drunk,” “Gun to My Head” and “Timbo Freestyle,” which Timbaland has confirmed he produced.

While a release date has yet to be announced, it was reported in October that Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign were seeking out a distributor for the album.

According to Billboard, several major labels declined to work with Ye due to his antisemitic tirades last year, but smaller companies like Too Lost, Distrokid and Tunecore were said to be in the race.

Kanye and Ty Dolla were also reportedly planning to unveil the album during a performance in Italy in October, but the show never went ahead.

The project, which appears to be called Vultures, will mark West’s first album since 2021’s Donda and the follow-up to Ty’s 2020 LP Featuring Ty Dolla Sign.

The pair have previously collaborated on a number of songs including “Fade,” “Real Friends” and “Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2).”
