Whatever drove Kanye West to reportedly work on recording new music while he was in the hospital doesn’t seem to have eased up now that he’s out.
TMZ reported earlier today that West was working on his follow-up to The Life at Pablo from his Bel-Air mansion where he allegedly built an in-home studio. But if that seemed like one more gossip story, producer and rapper Pete Rock shared a telling video that confirmed West has indeed been busy.
Rock shared a video on Instagram mentioning that he was listening to 45s in the studio with West. The horn-driven, upbeat, funky track on deck sounds like a new direction from the bass-heavy work West last released. But it’s the tracklist Rock quickly panned past that has many people speculating this could be Turbo Grafx 16, the follow-up West promised to Pablo. If that’s the case, the song titles have something to do with video game titles, like Resident Evil.
If the album sampling and the tracklist are to be believed, West is heavy into the recording phase and isn’t wasting any time preparing new music.
