Yeezy season approaching? Kanye West is a master collaborator, and whether it's the famous Hawaii sessions that birthed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy or the rotating cast that worked on The Life Of Pablo, he brings together some of the most interesting artists around. In 2018, Kanye has already had a daughter, taped a Family Feud episode, and returned to Instagram for Valentine's Day, but it seems that he's hard at work on new music too.
Recently, fans have spotted Kanye and Kim in Jackson, Wyoming and TMZ reported that he had headed back there to work on music, having previously visited the mountainous town last year. Kanye's not alone though, and Twitter accounts like TeamKanyeDaily have been keeping close tabs on all the artists and creatives who have been popping up in Jackson over the past few days. Here's everyone who has been spotted so far.
The frequent collaborator has worked on each Kanye album since 808s & Heartbreak. In February Cudi and Kanye gave a surprise performance in L.A. as part of an Adidas NBA All-Star Weekend event.
Hip-hop legend Nas was spotted with Cudi in Jackson. Nas and Kanye have appeared on multiple songs together, and recently the New York MC has been in the news for his smart tech investments as much as his music.

King Louie delivered a memorable verse on "Send It Up" from Kanye's 2013 album Yeezus and he's a certified Chicago legend.
R&B hero The-Dream worked with Kanye on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Watch The Throne, and The Life Of Pablo, as well as featuring him on his own album in 2009.
Producer and engineer Mike Dean has worked with Kanye since The College Dropout, and is also regularly part of West's live show.
Another frequent collaborator, and also a new father, it's no surprise to see Travis Scott is in Jackson.
P'ierre (and his unforgettable producer tag) blew up with Playboi Carti's "Magnolia," and the producer/rapper hasn't slowed down since, working with Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, and Drake, as well as on Carti's next project.
A$AP Mob co-founder and creative director Bari also co-founded clothing line VLONE and appeared on Skepta's song "It Ain't Safe" under the name Young Lord.
Atlanta producer Wheezy is partly responsible for shaping the sound of rap music right now. He's worked extensively with Young Thug, as well as Future, Lil Uzi Vert, T.I., Quavo, and many others.
The Grammy award wining producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has worked with Kanye on 808s & Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Watch the Throne.
Kanye West's first cousin is also an R&B and soul singer who was all over The College Dropout. The two have collaborated regularly since then and Tony Williams has become a fixture of West's live show.
