Is Kanye West producing a David Bowie tribute album?

Kanye West apparently wanted to produce a tribute album for the late David Bowie as he wishes to continue the legend's legacy.

According to Mirror, the rapper has been working hard in the studio adding his own spin to Bowie's classic hits like "Charges", "Heroes" and "Rebel, Rebel".

The Daily Star reports that the 38-year-old wants to pay tribute by recording a mix of straight cover versions, including some of his own influence as Kanye sees himself as a successor to Bowie in terms of musical innovation.

A source mentioned, "Some are straightforward cover versions with Kanye actually singing. On others he is rapping with his own lyrics over Bowie's music."

However TMZ reported that the "Yeezus" rapper has no plans to record a cover album after a rep confirmed so.

Many David Bowie fans were angered by the news whereby a petition was launched to shut down the production of the album.

Kanye was a huge fan of the late star but sources claim that the two never had plans to collaborate.
