Inside Kanye West's $14M Wyoming ranch where he wrote lyrics for Donda album after divorce from Kim Kardashian
KANYE West wrote the heartbreaking lyrics for his upcoming Donda album inside of his $14M Wyoming ranch.
The rapper's ex Kim Kardashian and their four children recently attended the listening event for the highly anticipated album.
The ranch, located in the town of Greybull, sits on more than 6,700 acres, and it has been the hitmaker's go-to place ever since Kim filed for a divorce.
According to Page Six, the impressive ranch, aside from its total of seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, of course also includes plenty of eye-opening features.
Kanye's ranch also has three separate cabins, each with their own full bathroom.
Near the main lodge sits a cookhouse cabin which has a commercial kitchen and a deck with incredible views, plus sleeping quarters for two.
There is also an outdoor cooking area with a fire pit and grills.
While one could drive to and from the ranch, the entertainer also has two heated helicopter pads for year-round access, and for obviously quicker commute.
"…The Wyoming mountains… all this infinite space where he could really find some solace, was a kind of therapy for him and helped create what I think is one of his best albums yet," a source told the outlet.
Kanye used the spectacular residence to write the lyrics for his upcoming album, which according to Variety is now ready to finally be released on August 6.
On July 22, Kanye had a launch event for the album, as he covered his face and fell to his knees while playing his new track, Love Unconditionally.
During the performance, the 44-year-old wore a balaclava and an all-red outfit as he repeatedly said: "I'm losing my family / I'm losing my family / I'm losing my family."
His late mother Donda – who the album is named after – could also be heard in the song saying, "No matter what you never abandon your family."
KIM SUPPORTS KANYE'S ALBUM
His ex Kim and their kids – North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm two – sat in the audience at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, as the emotional song played.
Kanye reportedly told the reality star about the personal nature of Love Unconditionally before his performance as he didn't want to "blindside" the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
An insider previously told E! News: "Kanye did write a song about Kim and their marriage and Kim gave her input about it.
"He was respectful and gave her the heads up, and did not want to blindside her."
The source added that Kanye is keen to keep their family as a "unit" – despite him being based at his Wyoming ranch and Kim and the kids staying at their Hidden Hills mansion.
The former couple appeared to be on good terms, as they happily laughed while spending time together backstage at the event.
The mother of four filed for divorce from Kanye back in February after separating months before.
They both have filed for joint and physical custody of their children and have remained adamant about focusing on co-parenting.
