The rapper dropped his 8th studio album today and to celebrate the special event, he invited celebrities, reporters, and musicians for a private listening party. Stars like Chris Rock, Jonah Hill, Nas, 2 Chainz, Scooter Braun, Ty Dolla $ign, and Teyana Taylor were all in attendance and jammed out to Kanye’s latest songs.
TMZ reports that Kanye has been working on his follow up to 2016’s The Life of Pablo and prior to its official release, the rapper live-streamed the album listening party on the app WAV.
Over the past few months, Kanye has spent a lot of time recording in Jackson Hole with artists like Big Sean, Travis Scott, Migos, and Drake, according to E! News.
“Kanye loves to escape to Wyoming to record his music because it is peaceful and he can lock up and really focus on getting tracks done,” a source told E! News.
“He thinks by being at the mountains, he doesn’t have many distractions and can have a more clear sense of direction for his music,” the source continued. “That is why he usually escapes there when he is in the zone to get things done.”
