Yeezy was photographed in a recording studio with the Fresh Prince and seen in a video trying his hand at samba music.

While vacationing with his pregnant partner in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, G.O.O.D Music mogul might be mixing business with pleasure. The Grammy-winning artist has been photographed with inside a studio and was seen in a clip trying his hand at some tambourine-playing.

Yeezy and the Fresh Prince were snapped hanging out in a recording studio which sparked speculations that the two might be collaborating on new music, perhaps for West's new album. Known to go outside the U.S. to do some of his recordings, West is in fact going to Paris to meet up with his "No Church in the Wild" collaborator to work on Yeezy's next album.

Whether they were actually recording or not, what can be assumed is West is currently trekking across South America hoping to find some musical inspiration. In a short clip, West is seen jamming in Rio with a few certified samba musicians, guiding him along as he struggled with playing a tambourine.

Because of his trip, West wasn't able to attend the Grammy Awards show on Sunday night. He couldn't be at the Staples Center to personally receive his three Grammy trophies, one of which was for Best Rap Performance with close friend . Jigga, on the other hand, was very much present to receive the award on Yeezy's behalf and took the stage to deliver the rapping part during 's "Suit & Tie" performance that night.
