Kanye West recording David Bowie tribute LP

19 January 2016, 10:38

Los Angeles - Kanye West is reportedly working on a David Bowie tribute album.

The Only One rapper - who led tributes to the late rock legend who died from liver cancer on 10 January - feels as a "musical innovator" it's his job to keep Bowie's songs and spirit alive.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "He is determined to carry on David's work as a musical innovator. He says that the torch has been passed to him."

The 38-year-old hip hop star has reportedly been spending hours in the studio working on covers to Bowie's songs, including hits like Rebel Rebel and Heroes, and he's also been rapping over the top of the Space Oddity singer's music with his own lyrics.

The source added: "Some are straightforward cover version with Kanye actually singing. On others he is rapping with his own lyrics over Bowie's music."

As soon as Kanye - who is married to Kim Kardashian West - heard the news of the late star's passing he took to social media and said how he was one of his "most important inspirations".

He wrote on Twitter: "David Bowie was one of my most important inspirations, so fearless, so creative, he gave us magic for a lifetime. I pray for his family and friends.
