Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has delivered some unexpected audio gold. New music from Yeezy has emerged across the Internet.
Last night, collaborative tracks went viral of Ye rapping with A$AP Rocky, Young Thug and Migos.
The first sample, titled “Can U Be,” was initially teased on Instagram by Kanye last year and clocks in at less than a minute. The second track, “Hold Tight,” features Young Thug and Migos with ‘Ye providing a heavily autotuned chorus hook. The final cut, “Euro Switch Hands,” sees A$AP Rocky spit some bars over a dark and jazzy groove that wouldn’t sound out of place on 2013’s Yeezus album. (Highsnobiety)
Recent reports revealed G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T had visited Kanye multiple times in Wyoming.
“Pusha T has been visiting. He inspires Kanye to write. Kanye’s trying to find his creative voice again, and he has people there to help him get, and stay, on track. He’s still a little off and is trying to get himself back,” the source said. Another source close to West told us the rapper’s stint in the mountains is not unusual. “He likes to work in remote places and be in the middle of nowhere as much as he can be,” said the insider.

Recently, veteran rapper Common gave his take on Kanye going to Wyoming for creative purposes.
“I love it, man. I love the look. Man look, for me, whatever an artist needs to do to create their best thing, then that’s what they need to do. Luckily, he’s got an incredible family so they probably understand. They understand he’s an artist. That’s why when you build a family, they need to know – you’re still gonna tend to your family. People don’t know how exactly much time he spends with his family but he’s a smart man, he’s gonna go do his thing and of course he’s always there for his family. So, it’s dope, man. I’m geeked that he’s doing an album. I would go wherever.” (TMZ)
A day prior, details emerged about Ye heading out to a mountaintop for music inspiration.
We know exactly where he is but hey, we don’t want to ruin his mojo … we like his music, too. But we can tell you he’s been there a week and also went 2 weeks earlier, so he’s smack in the middle of the creative process. This explains Kanye’s absence from some high-profile Kardashian events, including the Met Gala last week, where Kim went solo. (TMZ)
