Restless Kanye West Tells Doctors He Wants to Record Music From His Hospital Bed

Kanye West is reportedly keen to keep working on new projects - despite still being in hospital and treated for exhaustion.

The rapper was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, last week for sleep deprivation and mental health issues. And while he remains under care, insiders say he is still trying to keep his creative juices flowing.

A source told Us Weekly: "Kanye keeps wanting to work. At the hospital, he requested that recording equipment be brought to the hospital so he can record in his bed. And he has kept asking to see sketches of his fashion lines. He continues to want to work and Kim has to keep telling him to rest."

An insider also told E! News: "Kanye is the kind of person if he gets released and isn't mentally ready he will go back to his old ways and push himself over the limit again. He needs to keep up with counseling even though he has an intense work schedule. He is just really drained and still weak. He isn't himself."

Meanwhile, doctors have told him he hasn't recovered enough to be allowed home .

When he is released, his personal doctor will take care of him at home.
