Kanye West isn’t going to let a stay at the hospital stop him from putting out new music. The “Life of Pablo” rapper has reportedly requested recording equipment at his Los Angeles hospital bedside.
Even though wife Kim Kardashian is advising against, Kanye would like to get back to recording music, and he’s willing to do it right from the the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, reports Us Weekly.
“Kanye keeps wanting to work. At the hospital, he requested that recording equipment be brought to the hospital so he can record in his bed,” a source told the magazine. But it’s not just music Kanye wants to work on, he also wants to check up on his fashion line.
“He has kept asking to see sketches of his fashion lines,” a source added. “He continues to want to work, and Kim has to keep telling him to rest.”
The “Famous” rapper was hospitalized on Nov. 22 for paranoia, just one day after canceling the remaining dates on his Saint Pablo tour. On Monday, it was reported that doctors were considering allowing Kanye to be released to the care of his personal doctor but after further evaluation, the staff decided it would be best for him to stay, TMZ reported. No released date for the rapper has been revealed.
If Kanye does go through with working on music while at the hospital, he will not be the first hip-hop artist to do so. In 2002, after being diagnosed with an incurable blood disease known as TPP, legendary producer J Dilla worked on music while staying at a hospital.
During his hospital stay, Dilla finished 29 of the 31 songs featured on the classic hip-hop album, “Donuts.” It was the final album J Dilla released before passing away three days later on Feb. 10, 2006.
