Kanye West Is 'In a Creative Space,' and Is Making New Music During Recovery

Kanye West is at home recovering from his mental breakdown last month and — according to reports — he’s already working on new music.

Sources close to Kanye tell TMZ … since he got home, he’s been more relaxed and focused. We’re told Kanye’s built a temporary studio in their Bel-Air mansion so he can have the privacy he needs to get healthy, while also making new music as ideas come to him.

Our sources say Kanye’s comparing the breakdown, and 8 day hospital stay, to his near-fatal car crash and his mother’s death. We’re told he feels he created some of his best work — “Through The Wire” and ‘808s’ — after those crises.

As we reported, Kanye started melting down when he stopped taking prescribed doses of his usual meds for psychological issues. We’re told he’s kept that under control since leaving the hospital, and he’s in such a creative space … an album’s worth of material is a real possibility.

We’re always ready for new Kanye music. It’ll be interesting to hear what he has to say.
