Donda was originally set to be released in July, but earlier this week, West moved the date.

The rapper previewed the album at a listening party at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 22.


West has since been living in the stadium to finish the album. Sources said he liked the energy of the crowd at Mercedes-Benz and wanted to stay in that environment.

West posted photos of his austere quarters in what appears to be a locker room on Instagram. The rapper also made a brief appearance at an Atlanta United game, decked out in the same red outfit he wore at his listening party days earlier.
