Kanye West is a man who knows how to turn personal tragedy into musical triumph, and that hasn’t changed following his recent stint in the hospital.

As November came to a close, the rapper was released from UCLA Medical Center after undergoing treatment for sleep and water deprivation, extreme depression, and paranoia. Reports say that Kanye and his family are living separately at the moment, as he’ll need ongoing outpatient care with a team of medical professionals. But, according to TMZ, at least one aspect of his life remains the same––he’s making 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,” the site reports.

Their sources also say that Kanye is “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.”

“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,” TMZ goes on to report.

Kanye’s made some pretty alarming comments recently, but maybe he’s gained some perspective following his treatment in the hospital. So, if Pablo’s got a new album on his hands, we’re all ears. Click here for more of the latest updates on Kanye’s recovery.
