​Kanye is living in the Atlanta Mercedes-Benz stadium until he finishes ‘Donda’

Kanye West is living in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta until his forthcoming album ‘Donda’ is finished.

He’s been spotted walking around in the same outfit that he wore at his listening party on Thursday, July 22, four days after the event.

The rapper has been confirmed to have made his home in the stadium for the time being, with sources telling TMZ that he even missed a performance in Miami this weekend because he’s taken up residency in the Atlanta stadium.

Kanye has set up his own studio and living spaces and has brought in a personal chef to cook for him, posting a picture on Instagram which shows his makeshift bed and living quarters.

Fans recognised the space in Kanye's picture as the stadium's locker room, which has a suitcase on the floor with clothes in the wardrobe next to it, and a few pairs of shoes on the floor. The stark room even comes equipped with a TV.

Still sporting the same bright red Yeezy ensemble he performed in on Thursday, the rapper was spotted over the weekend at an Atlanta football game inside the stadium.

“So apparently Kanye West is still walking around Mercedes-Benz Stadium in his #DONDA release party fit,” one Twitter user wrote alongside a picture of the rapper clad in his party gear.

According to TMZ, Kanye was so inspired by the show on Thursday, he decided to stick around until his tenth studio album ‘Donda’ is completed. Currently, the unfinished album has left trails online as a leaked copy, but is yet to be finished.

‘Donda’ was due for release on Friday, July 23, just a day after the listening party. Although Kanye is yet to confirm, Justin Laboy updated fans on social media:

“Kanye West will move the release date of ‘Donda’ to August 6th. Thanks for your patience, he wants to give his fans the best possible product without rushing anything. He loves y’all with all of his heart. God bless #Donda.”

Kanye’s livestream party has now broken Apple Music Streaming records. 3.3 million people tuned in to the event on Thursday marking it the most-streamed Apple Music livestream, far surpassing the previous record - a 1.8 million turnout for the Gucci Mane v Jeezy livestream last year.
