Kanye West In Public For The First Time Since Breakdown; New Nintendo-Themed Album TurboGrafx 16 On The Works
Kanye West has been spotted for the first time in the public eye since news broke out about the Pablo rapper's breakdown.
He was spotted backstage at MOCA's Pacific Design Center and sporting a blonde hairdo, which is a different look than what he had prior to his hospitalization. The picture of Kanye West was uploaded to Instagram by artist Giovanni Bassan on Thursday with the caption of "K s in da house." The post was later made private by Bassan.
Sources close to the rapper have claimed his recovery is coming along better than expected, and he's already back making new music. Pete Rock, a producer who's worked with Kanye West on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, posted on Instagram a short clip showing off his collaboration with the Pablo rapper.

On one of his tweets way back in February, Kanye West declared his next album is titled Turbo Grafx 16, a homage to the late 80s video game console.
My next album is titled "Turbo Grafx 16" as of now… — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 27, 2016
just on some super nerd vibes… one of my favorite gaming systems when I was a kid… — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 27, 2016
On a closer look at Rock's short clip, eagle-eyed fans spotted what could be a potential tracklist. The names of the songs sound very familiar to Nintendo fans.
Kanye West's potential tracklist includes titles such as Tatsunoko v. Capcom, Sin and Punishment 2, Sonic Colors and Red Steel and other Nintendo exclusives. Strangely though, the album's title is a homage to the TurboGrafx-16 and not to Nintendo's consoles.
Let's see if any of that changes when Kanye West's next album is released.
