Kanye is Really Living Inside of Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium Until ‘DONDA’ Drops

Kanye shared a photo of the room he’s been living in since previewing DONDA at the stadium last week.

It’s been almost a full week since Kanye West previewed his upcoming album, DONDA, in Mercedes-Benz Stadium and he’s yet to leave.

Confirming reports of his temporary residency in the Atlanta arena, the rapper shared a photo of his accommodations on Instagram last night (see below.) The windowless dwelling is furnished with only a cot, a TV, a small dresser, and a digital clock, not unlike what a visiting team might be offered. A rep for the stadium — whose Twitter account now reads “DONDA Studio” — told HLN West had, in fact, set up a studio in the 2,000,000 square foot venue. Over the last week, West has been spotted in attendance at several events inside the stadium, some of which have been documented by the rapper himself on Instagram.

The extended stay in Mercedes-Benz Stadium was first reported earlier this week. However, it wasn’t immediately clear West was actually holing himself up in the sports arena that hosted a sold-out listening party for DONDA last Thursday. Those reports claim West will continue to live out of the stadium until DONDA is signed, sealed, and delivered. The initial date of arrival was set for July 23rd, but now appears to be pushed back to next Friday, August 6th. West will presumably continue working on the project — which featured appearances from Playboi Carti, Pop Smoke, Baby Keem, Lil Durk, and a closing verse from JAY-Z, at last listen — right up until the album’s release.
