west in the wild

Kanye West has apparently retreated to a Wyoming mountaintop to work on his next album

Kanye West is reportedly "holed up" on the top of some mountain in Wyoming working on his next album. TMZ claimed in a report Tuesday that the rapper has gone out west to get his creative juices flowing.

West is apparently "smack in the middle of the creative process," though his album appears to be in its very early stages. He was also reportedly out in Wyoming two weeks earlier.

If true, this would explain why West hasn't been on wife Kim Kardashian's arm at recent events, most notably at the Met Gala last week. No word on whether Yeezy's rumored wilderness retreat has anything to do with the recent deletion of his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Perhaps he's going for the full Walden experience?
