We finally know more details about the Vultures 2 album cover.

Although the album did not arrive for its originally announced March 8 release date, fans have been getting glimpses of the second installment in the Vultures trilogy from the artist formerly known as Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign in a few different ways.

On Friday, the duo premiered songs from their second collaborative album during a listening event in Los Angeles, California. 

The following day, the Vultures 2 album cover was formally revealed featuring a masked person in an all-black ensemble holding a framed headshot of what fans believed to be Ty Dolla Sign’s brother Jabreal Muhammad, a singer and producer also known as Big TC, per HipHopDX.

“This is your album to (sic), why you’re not in the cover?” wrote a fan on Instagram.

“This is me holding a picture of my brother Tc fyi,” replied Ty.

Muhammad is serving a life sentence in prison for a murder that he and Ty claim he did not commit, per Vice.

“There are so many people who are in prison—ever since before I was born—who are in prison for something they didn’t do. It’s an ongoing situation,” said Ty in a 2015 interview ahead of his debut album, Free TC, which was named after his brother. “So I’m using the little bit of power that I have to raise awareness about it and not let people forget about these people, and maybe we can change it.”

Ye and Ty will host more Vultures listening experiences at Phoenix’s Footprint Center on March 10 and San Francisco’s Chase Center on March 12. From there, the two will make their live performance debut on March 14 at Rolling Loud California.
