Kanye West has headed to the most unlikeliest of places for a Hip Hop artist to make new music.
Kanye has been out of the spotlight for quite a while now, following what can best be described as a rough 2016. Numerous issues –financial, marital, creative, mental — led to the Hip Hop legend’s fall into obscurity. It now appears as if ‘Ye is back to doing what he most loves…music.
The Chicago born-and-bred rapper/producer has been in Wyoming as of late, on some sort of secluded retreat. This is not the first time the soon-to-be 40-year-old has spent time in the state. The time-frame of the retreat also coincides with the removal of West’s Twitter and Instagram accounts.
While he did recently launch a new childrens’ clothing line with his wife Kim Kardashian-West, he’s been conspicuously absent from a number of high-profile events, including the Met Gala and February’s Grammy Awards.
Kanye’s last studio album came with the release of 2016’s The Life Of Pablo, which came with mixed critical reviews. Released well over a year ago, the album went on to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200.
Hopefully, for all of those that yearn for the return of the Kanye they fell in love with, musically, this marks the beginning of that journey.
