Kanye West has gone rouge! Well, actually…not quite.
It has been reported that Mr. West is currently working on a new album in the solitude of a Wyoming retreat. The out spoken rapper has kept a low profile since his public meltdown during his “Saint Pablo Tour” concert, in Sacramento, California back in November. Just a few days ago, the rapper also deleted all of his social media accounts and was a no show for the infamous Met Gala, which caused some to speculate that he and his wife had split; but Kim was quick to dispel any rumors about her husband whereabouts stating: “He’s at home. He’s been talking some time off and really loving that.” According to TMZ:
“Kanye West is making a new album, and is holed up in a Wyoming retreat at the top of a mountain to find his inspiration. We know exactly where he is but hey, we don’t want to ruin his mojo…we like his music, too. But we can tell you he’s been there a week and also went 2 weeks earlier, so he’s smack in the middle of the creative process.”
The Life of Pablo dropped in February 2016 on Tidal, which quickly soared to the top of the Billboard charts, and made it West’s seventh No. 1 album and second largest streaming to date.
This isn’t Kanye’s first time going off the grid. Kanye also decided for the fifth studio album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy to seclude himself in Hawaii in 2009. That particular album produced some of the most epic music of his career. We really hope this new album will show us once again why we all fell in love with Kanye.
