Kanye West ‘MOVED TO Mercedes Benz Stadium’ Where He Held A Donda Listening Event And ‘Staying Until Album Is Done’
Kanye West has reportedly decided to move into Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium while completing his next album, Donda.
The 44-year-old rap star held his much-discussed streaming launch event for the album there on Thursday, but has yet to release the completed record.
And now he would take up residence in the concert arena as he puts the finishing touches on Donda, TMZ reports.

To do this, he would have to cancel his scheduled appearance at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami this weekend, which he reportedly did.
Kanye is said to have engaged a chef for the duration of his stay at the location, which has a living space and studio cobbled together for his use.
The news of his apparent sojourn at the Mercedes Benz stadium comes after photos on Twitter of him began to circulate in the stands on Saturday.
An Atlanta United FC football game was being held there and Kanye glimpsed through the crowd.

He was still wearing his stage outfit, which included a jacket from his line with Gap and a mesh mask that completely obscured his face.
His fans were stunned after Kanye failed to release the album even after the release party, and this Saturday he announced it would be out on August 6.
They have faced delays on previous records of his, including his first gospel album Jesus Is King, which was delayed several times before its release.
Malik Yusef, a frequent contributor to Kanye, tweeted Friday: “Still at work, but almost done, we appreciate your patience bro nem #DONDA #badkids #goodmusic.”

Kanye’s audience at his listening event on Thursday included his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and their children.
Kim, who wore a figure-hugging red outfit that fans say matched Kanye’s, was also joined by her younger sister Khloe Kardashian.
Donda is named after Kanye’s late mother, who died in 2007 at the age of 58 of heart disease and postoperative complications after multiple cosmetic procedures.
During the listening party, he played a song called Love Unconditionally in which he sang “I’m my family” amid his divorce from Kim.

It begs his lost love to “come back to me” and includes audio of Donda recalling that her father taught her to “love unconditionally” and “never abandon your family.”
Kanye put on an emotional display during Love Unconditionally, even falling to his knees on stage as Kim watched.
Kim finally filed for divorce in February after months of rumors that her marriage to Kanye was on the brink of collapse.
They have reportedly agreed to split custody of their four children – North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three and Psalm two.
