Kanye West is using his frustrations to make a new album.
According to a new report, the 39-year-old is being inspired by his wife Kim Kardashian’s Parisian robbery to create new music. And that’s not all — he’s using all of his traumatic 2016 happenings (including his fallout with Jay Z and Beyoncé and subsequent hospitalization) as inspiration!
“Kanye is writing rhymes about Kim’s Parisian robbers, his meltdown on tour, recent hospitalization, his beef with Jay and Bey, and everything else he has been through in the last few months,” a source tells Hollywood Life. “The guy is a workaholic and has been using all of his painful experiences as inspiration to write new raps and lay down new music. He is feeling better and [is] hard at work now working on new tracks.”
Well, it’s good to see Kanye turning lemons into lemonade — no Bey shade intended!

Last year was especially rocky for Kanye after it was rumored that he and Kim were headed for a divorce. Insiders told In Touch that he was overcome by “increasingly paranoid behavior” that made it difficult for Kim to tolerate him. Eventually, she reached her breaking point when he met with President-elect Donald Trump.
“Things between Kanye and Kim were bad before he left, but after meeting with Trump, the marriage will officially be over,” a source told exclusively at the time. “Kim was absolutely disgusted Kanye met with Donald, and feels as if it’s a slap in the face to their two children, North and Saint.”
This is hardly the first time Kanye has let his real life inspire his music.
In addition to countless songs about Kim and her body, Ye landed himself in a bit of trouble this year with his song “Famous,” in which he raps, “I feel like me and Taylor [Swift] may still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous.”
