Drake and Kanye West are said to be collaborating on the West's new album - and the team-up looks to be quite a star-studded affair.

They have been joined in Jackson Hole, Wyoming by Nas, The-Dream, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott and Lil Uzi Vert, TMZ reports.

Using assumed names, Drake and Kanye are pitched up in the swanky Amangini Resort - Drake at the hotel proper and Kanye at a 'separate house at the resort,' as TMZ described it.

Drake's songwriter, photographer/videographer and engineer are part of what TMZ calls the 'huge crew' he has brought to Wyoming.

Several big producers have traveled up to the mountain retreat as well, and so has 'a ton of audio and recording equipment.'

Oprah Winfrey's onetime personal chef Paul Zlatos is said to be rendering his culinary services to this big-name group.

Kid Cudi and Drake have infamously feuded, with Cudi dissing Drake for relying on songwriters and Drake mocking Cudi's mental health problems.

However, it appears the trouble between them has subsided to the point that that they can collaborate with each other.

There is also a family connection between two of the rappers involved - Kanye is married to Kim Kardashian, whose half-sister Kylie Jenner just had Travis' baby.

Kim and Kanye themselves recently welcomed their third child, a daughter called Chicago who was brought into the world via surrogacy.

The couple affectionately known as Kimye also share a four-year-old daughter named North and a two-year-old son named Saint.

Kanye's latest album, Life Of Pablo, was his seventh and was released on Valentine's Day of 2016.

He went on tour that year to promote the record, but canceled it suddenly with 21 dates left. Shortly thereafter, he was hospitalized after suffering what his doctor told police was 'temporary psychosis,' according to TMZ.
