Kanye West is currently holed up at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta where he’s putting the final touches on his long-delayed album, Donda. In an Instagram post on Tuesday (July 27), the Chicago native gave fans a glimpse of what his new living quarters look like, which include a makeshift dorm with a small bed, flatscreen TV, closet and workout equipment.
In the comments, fans also noticed Ye’s suitcase, which he appears to be living out of, and some pairs of Yeezys he brought along.
Kanye has been staying at the Altana sports arena since he hosted his Donda listening party there last week. The event broke an Apple Music streaming record and was supposed to be followed by the official release of the album, which never happened. Instead, REVOLT’s Justin LaBoy wrote on Twitter, Donda is now scheduled to arrive on Aug. 6
“KANYE WEST WILL MOVE THE RELEASE DATE OF DONDA TO AUGUST 6TH,” he tweeted. “THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE. HE WANTS TO GIVE HIS FANS THE BEST POSSIBLE PRODUCT WITHOUT RUSHING ANYTHING. HE LOVES YALL WITH ALL OF HIS HEART. GOD BLESS.”
The “Respectfully Justin” host added, “ALBUM OF THE YEAR WILL BE RELEASED ON AUGUST 6th. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE. TRUST ME IT’S GOING TO BE WORTH IT.”
According to HipHopDX, Kanye also flew out producers Rick Rubin and Mike Dean to help him finish the album. The Jesus Is King crafter also set up a makeshift recording space and recruited a private chef to the stadium to prepare his meals.
A Twitter account called “Donda’s Place” said on Tuesday that Ye will hold two more listening parties for the album at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium next month. The account claimed the events will take place at the stadium on Aug. 5 and 6; however, this has not been confirmed.
