Though it has been a week since Kanye West was released from the hospital, many have been understandably concerned for his health. Now it seems that he is officially on the mend, and if that weren’t enough, reports have emerged that he is hard at work on new music.
A source close to the West family confirmed to TMZ that he has built a functioning studio inside his mansion in Bel Air where he is currently recovering from his breakdown. But far from stressing himself, it seems that he is comparing his current period of creativity to the same feelings evoked after his near-fatal car crash in 2004 (which produced “Through the Wire”) and his mother’s death (which produced 808s & Heartbreak).
So with that in mind, it seems that this recovery time could produce untold wonders. In the meantime, we wish him a speedy recovery.
