Nearly a year ago, it was reported that Kanye West retreated to the mountains of Wyoming to write and record the follow up to The Life Of Pablo. Pusha T even followed him out there. Apparently, those initial sessions went well, because now, Kanye is back in Wyoming, and it again looks like he brought some friends with him, but even more this time.
Kim Kardashian recently posted the above photo of a mountain (and a little bit of Kanye) in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on her Instagram story, and E! notes that Kardashian is out there to visit Kanye, who, according to a source, has been “recording in Jackson Hole for the last week.” E!’s source also says:
“He has several producers, friends and his personal trainer who have all dropped into town to work with him. Travis Scott was also in town to work on music. […] It’s one of Kanye’s places and he is in heaven being in Jackson. […]”
E! also cites another source who reports:
“Kanye loves to escape to Wyoming to record his music because it is peaceful and he can lock up and really focus on getting tracks done. He thinks by being at the mountains, he doesn’t have many distractions and can have a more clear sense of direction for his music. That is why he usually escapes there when he is in the zone to get things done. Kanye wants to release something ‘very soon’ and is really excited about getting back into the creative game.”
So far, Kid Cudi, Nas, Travis Scott, King Louie, The-Dream, Wheezy, Pi’erre Bourne, and producers Mike Dean and Jeff Bhasker have been either spotted in Wyoming or have posted photos of themselves there. Check out those posts below, and keep an ear to the ground on the Kanye West front, because Yeezy season may be approaching.
