Shortly after rapper Kanye West hosted a listening party for his new album “Donda” at Atlanta United’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, it was reported that the failed 2020 presidential hopeful actually converted parts of the downtown facility into a home studio and living space. Sources say Kanye plans to stay in Atlanta until August 6.
West, 44, took to social media on Tuesday to give his fans, and the world, a behind-the-scenes look at his bedroom in the downtown Atlanta stadium.
Heather Sautter, the director of corporate and marketing communications at MBS, previously confirmed to local Atlanta outlet CBS46 that West reached out to the stadium regarding his use of the location for his upcoming album.
As of this article’s publication, the image has amassed more than 1.6 million likes on Instagram, and thousands of comments from both confused and enthusiastic fans of the 44-year-old rapper.
“Not even a window?” questioned Instagram user couchluckas, while user salad.snake applauded the rapper and his “nice living quarters,” saying they are “looking forward to [the] album of the century.
Sautter also revealed that the officials with the Mercedes-Benz Stadium “did have to come up with a workaround for West with this past Saturday’s Atlanta United game,” which took place just two days after West’s album listening party.
While the 44-year-old’s listening party was held in the stadium on Thursday, the album has not been released for mass consumption because it remains incomplete.
The polarizing rapper and failed politician is expected to move out of the downtown Atlanta stadium around the same time.
