Kanye West has reportedly moved into Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium while finishing work on his long-delayed new album, Donda. The rapper and producer took over the venue on Thursday night to host a listening party for the album, and according to TMZ, he has not left the stadium since. The outlet reports that West has constructed a studio space and a place to live inside the stadium, and has even hired a private chef to prepare his meals. West is therefore expected to miss his Rolling Loud Miami performance this weekend, sources with direct knowledge told TMZ.
On Saturday (July 24), West was spotted wandering around the stadium during an Atlanta United football match that took place there while wearing the same outfit that he wore during the listening party earlier this week.
Donda was supposed to arrive on Friday, July 23, but no album materialized. Internet personality Justin Laboy, who has been posting updates throughout the album’s rollout, claims the album has been pushed back to August 6.
So apparently Kanye West is still walking around Mercedes-Benz Stadium in his #DONDA release party fit. 💀😂 pic.twitter.com/JTwCpKXKzr
