Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West

Kanye West is desperate to make music in hospital but has been told to "rest".

The 39-year-old rapper - who has always been a slave to his work - has reportedly been asking is wife Kim Kardashian West if he can have music equipment at his bedside and see his Yeezy fashion designs, but the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star has told him he must focus on getting better.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "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."

The 36-year-old beauty has been spending several hours a day at her husband's side at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angles after he experienced a "psychotic breakdown" last week, but she is reportedly determined to keep their kids North, three, and 11-month-old Saint away from the hospital until the 'Famous' hitmaker is on the mend.

However, the little ones are allowed to visit their father at the Resnick Neuropsychiatric ward at UCLA, where Kanye is currently receiving treatment, providing they are accompanied by an adult.

The 'Bound 2' hitmaker was rushed to hospital over a week ago after he reportedly began hallucinating and lashed out at paramedics.

Since his admission, doctors have been keeping a constant eye on the rapper as they're worried for his mental state and his safety.

An insider recently said: "In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety. He's still there because clearly he's not doing well. Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day. She says that Kanye is on many different medications and that his doctors are figuring out proper doses. Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned."
