Kanye West had announced he would deliver a handful of seven-track projects, four of which were under the G.O.O.D. Music banner. He recorded his eighth solo studio album (Ye) and a collaborative album with Kid Cudi (Kids See Ghosts).
In order to pull this off, Kanye needed to maximize his focus and minimize his distractions. So, the rapper decided to pack his bags and head to Jackon Hole, Wyoming. There he would conduct weeks-long recording sessions with some of the biggest names in the game.
Ricky Anderson, Kanye’s cousin and the head of A&R at G.O.O.D. Music, described the Wyoming Sessions as a “unique” experience. “It was a lot of work. Kanye built a little studio spot in his room, and we would all sit in his bedroom and work on music and shoot different ideas to each other,” Anderson said.
Mr. Harris and Carmichael reminisced about their favorite Wyoming moments. Anderson seemingly confirmed that Kanye was headed back to the state for the second round of recording sessions.
“Yeah, we gonna do that again,” Anderson said.
He didn’t expand on his comments, but many fans assume Kanye will return to Wyoming to work on his long Yadhi project. The album was originally set to drop back in September but has been postponed indefinitely.
