KANYE fans have had to be a patient bunch after the artist repeatedly delayed the release of his newest album, Donda.
The 44-year-old rap star has been hunkered down in the Atlanta United Stadium for months now as he reportedly works on the record.
Why is Kanye West living inside Atlanta United’s stadium?
Kanye West has eschewed his luxury lifestyle in favor of some significantly more modest living quarters.
Yeezus showed off his ‘room’ in the stadium which is just a small, un-decorated grey room with a single bed and a small wardrobe.
Kanye has been using the space to put the final touches to his tenth album, DONDA, which is dedicated to his mom, Donda West – who tragically passed away in November 2007.
The stadium might not seem glamorous but it is just down the road from Morris Brown College where the star’s late mother taught for almost two decades.
Who is Kanye West living in the stadium with?
The West team has been hush-hush with regards to who is living with or coming to see the rapper.
It’s believed, however, that he’s staying there with a full staff.
There are even reports that the star has brought in a private Chef, so it looks like West hasn’t totally given up his creature comforts.
What have fans said?
Many fans reacted with disbelief to the news that Kanye had set up shop inside a stadium.
“I absolutely cannot handle the fact that Kanye West is living in a billion dollar stadium near my work,” one Atlanta-based fan said on twitter.
“OK, I’m just gonna ask… WHY is Kanye living in a jail cell in a stadium?” another user asked, apparently incredulous.
Others suggested that other artists might want to take a leaf out of Ye’s book: “Kanye living in a stadium is very very funny. Would love to see Britain’s best rapper, Robbie Williams, do the same and live in Vale Park.”
When is Kanye West’s album Donda dropping and is there another live music event?
Kanye has held several listening parties in the stadium he now calls home.
On Thursday August 26 Kanye recreated his childhood home for his latest listening party and even ‘re-married’ estranged wife Kim Kardashian on-stage as part of the epic event.
It also controversially featured artists Marilyn Manson and DaBaby.
The first listening party for the star’s 10th studio album took place on July 22, 2021 with the album first scheduled to drop two days later – but fans were left disapointed.
A second listening party took place on August 5, 2021 and was titled Kanye West Presents: The Donda Album Release.
The highly-anticipated album was meant to drop a day later on August 6 but fans were once again let down.
When is Kanye West’s Donda album dropping and is there another live music event?
Kanye’s devoted fans will be waiting with baited breath on August 27, 2021 after the date was confirmed by the artist and his manager.
It might not be third time lucky, however, as Apple Music’s site contradicts this date.
Instead, the streaming site expects its’ users to be waiting until September 3, 2021.
