Is Kanye West About to Go All G.O.O.D. Friday On Us?

After a blistering stretch of life that saw his wife, Kim Kardashian, robbed at gunpoint, and his reputation dragged through the mud at the expense of some ill-advised mingling with President Trump, Kanye did what any smart Kanye West would do: disappear. Except, he didn’t just randomly dissipate. The intensely creative artist chose a location for recluse, made it his creative haven, and appears to now be inviting collaborators into the fold. And it sounds eerily like when West launched his epic “G.O.O.D. Friday” series, and dropped one of the most critically-acclaimed albums in his beefy catalog, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

A recent Page Six report makes Kanye’s recent disappearance into the obscurity of Wyoming more intriguing than it already was. Apparently, Pusha T has journeyed out to the Cowboy State to help Kanye get into his proper creative zone. “He inspires Kanye write,” says a source according to Page Six. “Kanye’s trying to find his creative voice again, and he has people there to help him get, and stay, on track. He’s still a little off and is trying to get himself back.”

There was once a time when scanning the internet to find any number of new songs from a myriad of stars wasn’t the norm. It certainly wasn’t in 2010, as rappers were still experimenting how best to put social platforms like Twitter to use, mostly ignorant to the immense potential and opportunity it would soon hold. That was the year—the summer, specifically—that Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music army went militant, blessing fans with new music every Friday, resulting in posse cuts like “Monster,” “So Appalled,” and several other records that made the final tracklist for Dark Fantasy. Most of that album was recorded In Hawaii, where West summoned several artists—Nicki Minaj, Pusha T, Q-Tip and more among them—to work on the album, away from rampant paparazzi and media scrutiny.

His plan worked—MBDTF is regarded as, at the very least, West’s most cohesive album, likely the result of a refusal to concoct records via e-mail replies. Chased into an obscure solace on a quest for creative self-center, West could be on the verge of Hawaii pt. 2. Wyoming might not seem like the ideal Nirvana that someone like West could certainly afford, but considering his appreciation for picturesque mountainous regions, a retreat tucked away in one of Wyoming’s many mountain ranges could be just what he needs to get studio album number eight kickstarted. And just the right location to hide 2 or 3 A-list musicians for a few weeks a a time.

How does the saying go? Twice is coincidence, three times is conspiracy? If Travis Scott winds up at Jackson Hole Airport in June, I’m calling it.
