More friends and family have joined Kanye during his music-making sabbatical in Jackson, Wyoming, including Kid Cudi, Nas, King Louie, The-Dream, Wheezy, Pi’erre Bourne, and producers Mike Dean and Jeff Bhasker, among others.
Kim Kardashian flew out to join Kanye on Saturday, who “has been recording in Jackson Hole for the last week,” a source told E! News. “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.” The source continued, “It’s one of Kanye's places and he is in heaven being in Jackson."
A second source spoke to E! on Kanye’s getaway: “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.”
The insider added, “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.”
It’s unclear whether all these artists are putting the finishing touches on Scott’s long-awaited AstroWorld, or it is new material for ‘Ye. Last year, rumors flew that he was “holed up” on a mountain top in Wyoming, working on what was purportedly the follow-up to 2016’s The Life of Pablo. We haven’t seen anything from ‘Ye since then, so our only hope is that something brilliant comes out of these mountain top meetings. But knowing Kanye, it couldn’t be any less.
