Kanye West rebuilding childhood home for ‘Donda’ listening party

Kanye West is pulling out all of the stops for his next “Donda” listening party.

The “Power” rapper is rebuilding his childhood home in the middle of Chicago’s Soldier Field, where he’ll be playing his forthcoming album on Thursday, according to online photos snapped from inside the stadium.

West wiped his entire Instagram account over the weekend and began uploading photos having only to do with “Donda”—and kicked off with a photo of the home he shared with his beloved late mother.

The Post obtained exclusive photos of West’s former 1,600-square-foot house, which has changed hands several times since Donda sold it in 2003 for $121,000.

In 2011, a camera crew even followed West as he visited the home with Jay-Z. It was also featured on a 2018 episode of “Keeping Up With Kardashians.” He ultimately bought the home back last year for $225,000.

“Donda” will serve as a tribute to the 44-year-old rapper’s late mother, who died in 2007. The album, which already has been played at two separate listening parties in Atlanta, is reportedly going to be released following his Soldier Field performance, but fans have heard that promise numerous times.

West’s promo leading up to “Donda” has been nothing short of headline-making, as he raised eyebrows for renting out—and moving into—Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium to finish the record. He shared a photo of his humble quarters inside the stadium that featured only a twin bed, a small closet and plenty of cinderblocks.

While his bedroom may have been minimalist, he went all out for other amenities; the “All of the Lights” rapper hired a private chef for the duration of his stay.

Fans will just have to wait and see if they’ll receive the highly anticipated album this week or simply wonder what Kim Kardashian thinks of it.
