Kanye’s long-awaited 10th studio album was first teased with last year’s track with Travis Scott, Wash Us in the Blood. The album has been delayed several times, mostly due to creative refinements, his brief bid for the White House, and divorce proceedings with Kim K.

Either way, last Friday, 42,000 fans flocked to a sold-out listening party, where West roamed around the stadium floor as his album blasted through the speakers – but that doesn’t mean it’s done yet…
In fact, West has even reportedly moved into the venue until he finishes his work on Donda, missing his performance at Rolling Loud in Miami because he’s so preoccupied. Allegedly, Kanye has even built his own studio space inside the stadium, with living quarters and a chef.

Kanye was also spotted in the same clothes he wore to the event at the Atlanta United football game yesterday. One fan wrote, ‘Kanye living at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium is honestly one of the better rap stories in a while. I need the oral history after Donda drops’.
Donda was set to be released two days ago, but after feeling inspired by the audience at the listening party, West is hunkering down again. Now, the album is expected to drop on August 6, featuring collabs with Pusha T, Lil Baby, and Jay-Z.
