After spending a large portion of this week in the news, Kanye West is seeking a little peace and quiet. The Chicago native has fled Calabasas with his family, flying back to his Wyoming retreat in an effort to finish the albums he's promised in the coming weeks. According to TMZ, the 40-year-old has bought out some time at a lavish resort just for Yeezy, his family and collaborators to construct a safe creative space.

The hotel had closed its doors for the off-season but agreed to a deal with Kanye and his crew because he's been one of their most "loyal and high-profile" guests over time. The report also says Ye is holding down a luxurious suite that usually goes for around $5,000 a night. 

Pablo will be hard at work with a few special visitors at his side while putting finishing touches on the five albums he's said to be working on. The stream of G.O.O.D. Music releases begins with King Push on May 25, Kanye's solo project slated for June 1, followed up by his collaborative effort with Kid Cudi for Kids See Ghost on June 8, the highly anticipated Nas album he's producing that will drop on June 15, and Teyana Taylor's much-delayed project will finally come to light on June 22.
