He's been working on new music too
Kanye West has reportedly torn down his LA studio in Calabasas.
Design boards and project plans were seen being cleared out of the studio recently as workers started emptying the hip hop icon’s belongings.
Items of his clothing projects were also hauled out of the studio space, according to The Mirror.
It was recently reported that West has set up a studio in his Bel-Air mansion and is working on a new album. He’s apparently been working with Pete Rock who has shared photos from inside the studio, including a notepad containing the names of video games – which many believe could point to the long-awaited release of his project ‘Turbo Grafx 16’.
The rapper is also reportedly set to resume his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour in the New Year.
He was only recently released from hospital after being admitted for “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration” last month, following a series on on-stage outbursts and erratic behaviour.
Now according to X17, West’s tour dates will resume in January with a source claiming: “Kanye really wants to make good on his promise to perform for fans. Although ticket buyers were refunded, Kanye think it’s really important to give them another chance to see his show. And honestly, he wants to prove to the world that he’s healthy and that he’s back. Kanye is not going away anytime soon. “
The remainder of his 2016 tour dates were recently cancelled after he was admitted to hospital.
Meanwhile, the liner notes for Frank Ocean’s ‘Blonde’ were finally recently revealed showing West’s contribution to the album.
The musician’s Boys Don’t Cry magazine included a list of contributors, including David Bowie, West, Jamie xx and Beyoncé, to the record’s 17 tracks, but didn’t make clear who did what where.
A month after the record came out, songwriting body ASCAAP revealed some of the songwriting credits for ‘Blonde’, but didn’t fully reveal the album’s whole story.
