It’s been all quiet on the Kanye West front for a minute now. Since his hospitalization in November while on his Saint Pablo Tour, Kanye has mostly stayed out of the public eye.
He surfaced briefly to go chit-chat with human trash receptacle Donald Trump and then posed for pictures with POTUS, proving that his hospitalization was for good reason.
Since then it’s been quiet for Pablo. He did not appear at his own Yeezy fashion show in February and then was absent from the Met Gala last week as Kim Kardashian appeared solo dolo on the red carpet.
Kanye also scrubbed all of his social media on twitter and Instagram, and there were suggestions something was amiss with the 808‘s artist.
But according to a report from TMZ, Yeezus is all good, he’s just chillin’ on a mountain in Wyoming creating his new album.
TMZ even claims to know which mountain he’s on, but don’t want to create any problems for Kanye. From the report,
“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.”
Kanye has done this kind of thing before. He famously went to Hawaii to record My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Saint Pablo was recorded all over the globe, including stops in Mexico and Italy.
It seems like this strategy of holing up in various isolated locales has worked for Kanye in the past, although ‘old Kanye’ used to make five beats a day in his room for three summers.
Anyways, we hope Kanye is feeling happy and healthy out there on top of a mountain in Wyoming.
Back in February ‘Ye claimed the album was called Turbo Grafx 16, which is a wild name but at this point we expect nothing less. Looking forward to whatever Kanye cooking up out there.
