Kanye West and Donald Trump did not discuss politics during their meeting this week.
The 39-year-old rapper and the 70-year-old US president elect met at Trump Tower in New York, where Donald told reporters that they just discussed "life".
A source added to PEOPLE: "Kanye reached out to Trump and asked to come by. They didn’t talk about politics. Kanye is in New York for meetings and he is also working with a realtor to find an apartment. He loves New York and wants to spend more time there."
‘Celebrity Apprentice’ star Donald also revealed the pair have been pals for some time, explaining: "We’ve been friends for a long time."
Kanye was accompanied by Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble on the visit.
Although Kanye has revealed his plans to run for president in 2020, he refused to answer questions on whether he discussed his bid with Trump, insisting he just wanted to "take a picture right now".
Meanwhile, sources close to the star say he is much calmer following his recent stint in hospital for exhaustion and sleep deprivation after cancelling his US tour.
A source said: "Kanye seems more subdued and less manic than he usually has been, but still in a creative headspace. He’s being low-key but seems focused on the future – future projects and moving forward. He’s slowed down a little but he’s still very focused on projects, personal and professional. And he does still seem exhausted from everything. You can tell the experience [canceling the tour and time in the hospital] was very trying."
