    Kanye West is reportedly planning a solo David Bowie tribute album to continue the late singer's legacy.

    The Yeezus rapper is said to have been getting to work in the studio putting his own spin on classic hits like Charges, Heroes and Rebel, Rebel.

    According to the Daily Star, the 38-year-old star wants to pay tribute to the legendary performer by recording a mix of straight cover version, and some with Ye's own influence.

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

    Kanye is reportedly set to release his own Bowie tribute

    The report claims that Kanye sees himself as a successor to Bowie in terms of musical innovation.

    The insider added: "He is determined to carry on David's work as a musical innovator. He says that the torch has been passed to him."

    Meanwhile, the Starman singer's son has returned to Twitter to share a heartfelt note about his father's death.

    Film director Duncan Jones told fans he would be "offline for a while" following the sad news the music icon had passed away after an 18-month battle with cancer.

    But he broke his social media silence over the weekend to share a letter written to the late singer by a palliative care doctor .

    He retweeted a link posted by the Marie Curie organisation to a letter from Dr. Mark Taubert, who wrote about how Bowie's private cancer battle helped him ease the concerns of a dying patient.



    The doctor wrote: "At the beginning of that week I had a discussion with a hospital patient, facing the end of her life.

    "We discussed your death and your music, and it got us talking about numerous weighty subjects, that are not always straightforward to discuss with someone facing their own demise.

    "In fact, your story became a way for us to communicate very openly about death, something many doctors and nurses struggle to introduce as a topic of conversation."

    Bowie was so specific with his material and sampling, covers, whatnot. Wouldn't be surprised if it can't happen somehow.

    This is so fake. Purely written to incite outrage from Facebook commenters who share this article claiming Kanye West is causing h--- to freeze over.

    You know, the same people who share this meme
