# Roommates, when the City of Atlanta filled the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to the limit for Kanye West’s “DONDA” listening party last night, Ye was given an incredible honor from his hometown backstage before the show. As he was preparing for the premiere of his new album, Kanye West was honored by Atlanta city officials – who officially declared that July 22nd would be Kanye West Day in the city.
Dressed from head to toe in an all-red Yeezy ensemble reminiscent of his 2010 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy era, Kanye West smiled behind his mask while the estranged wife Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, became members of his entourage , as, as well as his family and friends, witnessed the official proclamation of the city of Atlanta – officially that he now has his very own day.
In case you didn’t know, Kanye was born in Atlanta and lived in the city until he was three years old after his parents divorced. His father, Ray West, was a photojournalist with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and his mother, the late Donda West, was an English professor at Clark Atlanta University and Morris Brown College – so his ties to Atlanta are very close.
As for music, fans are still in a frenzy after hearing for the first time “DONDA,” which features a surprise reunion between Kanye West and Jay-Z that literally broke the internet last night. Other artists on the album include Rihanna, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, and Travis Scott.
In the meantime, the wait continues as “DONDA” still hasn’t fallen on streaming services … probably because Kanye is still adding the perfect finishing touch.
