- Kanye West has ditched his mansion to live inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Kanye West has moved into the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, a stadium spokesperson confirmed with Insider on Monday.
Last week, a crowd of 42,000 people filled the stadium to hear select songs from West’s new album “Donda” at the rapper’s listening party. Millions of listeners tuned into Apple Music’s exclusive live stream of the event.
West was reportedly so inspired by the crowd that he never left, TMZ first reported — and he plans on staying there until the album is completed.
Donda, named after the artists’ mother Donda West, was originally set to be released on July 23. A representative told Pitchfork on Monday that the new release date has been officially pushed to August 6.

“We’ve been able to accommodate his needs while he’s with us,” a stadium spokesperson told Insider.
