Kanye Tweets About "Mental Slavery" From His Majestic Mountain Home In Wyoming
Kanye West's new album is scheduled to be released on June 1 (according to Kanye's Tweets), but according to a report from TMZ the project isn't completed yet. They reported that Kanye has returned to Wyoming to put the finishing touches on the album, as well his other projects with Pusha T, Nas, Teyana Taylor and Kid Cudi.
Kanye reportedly flew out of Los Angeles on Wednesday and was headed to a secluded home in the Cowboy State that he has rented. It reportedly sits atop a mountain, Kanye is expected to spend several weeks there putting in work.
A Page Six report from 2017 reported that it's not the first time that Kanye has worked on an album in Wyoming. Around this time last year, he was also in the state collaborating with, Travis Scott, The Dream, and Pusha T. A source shared this information:
"Kanye's trying to find his creative voice again, and he has people there to help him get and stay on track."
Kanye could be adding new elements and guests to the album while riding on the wave of the recent controversy surrounding his Tweets and his most recent comments about slavery when he told TMZ Live :
"When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years?! That sounds like a choice," the rapper said. "Like, you was there for 400 years and it was all of y'all?"
After a live interview which included heartfelt moments when Kanye sincerely apologized to a black TMZ staff for his slavery comments, he also clarified once off-air with the following Tweets:
"To make myself clear, of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. For us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved."
Along with his upcoming solo album, West is reportably working on a joint project with Kid Cudi titled "Kids See Ghost", which is scheduled for a June 8 release.
