Kanye West is reportedly in Wyoming working on his ninth studio album.
Why Wyoming? Apparently, Kanye really likes the mountains. According to TMZ, he went there in 2017 a few times to start recording for his forthcoming album (and to just get away from LA, as one wants to do from time to time), and he’s gone back there yet again this year to hash out more tunes.
Only this time he’s brought a veritable army of music-makers with him. TMZ reports that Kiley’s boyfriend Travis Scott is also in Jackson Hole Wyoming to help out, as are King Louie and The-Dream, the World Famous Tony Williams, and Young Thug producer Wheezy.
Jackson Hole is a resort town nestled between two mountain ranges and famous for its incredible skiing. None of the artists or producers listed geotagged themselves on Instagram or social media, but they were all wearing parkas and in front of snowy mountaintops. You do the math.
“Kanye has been recording in Jackson Hole for the last week,” an insider with E! News said. “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,” added the source, confirming Scott’s Instagram post.
While Kanye is certainly in Wyoming to work, he’s also taking plenty of time to play as well. Third-time mom Kim Kardashian took a break from parenting this past weekend to visit her hubby and ensure he’s doing all right and not pushing himself too hard. Nobody wants to see a repeat of Kanye’s 2016 meltdown.
“It’s quick visit for Kim, but she loves being at the resort to spend time with Kanye and get away from it all,” said the source. “It’s a good change of pace for her and some down time to relax. Its one of Kanye’s places and he is in heaven being in Jackson.”
Kim even went skiing and posted a video on her Instagram.
