Kanye West Reveals His Bleak Living Conditions in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium

He's staying in the building until he finishes 'DONDA'

It seems like Kanye West is living modestly while working to complete his 10th studio album, DONDA.

The 44-year-old rapper shared a photo of his minimalist bedroom at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta via Instagram last night (July 27), and the conditions are anything but extravagant.

The dismal room he's staying in includes a mounted TV, a twin-sized bed on the floor, a sparse closet and a grey carpeted floor where the artist has neatly placed four pairs of Yeezy sneakers.

West's manager, Bu Thiam, also shared a photo inside the stadium, showing a placard that reads "Donda Studio at Mercedes-Benz Stadium."

According to the Associated Press, West plans to stay at the stadium while completing DONDA, which is named after his late mother. 

​The artist has taken up residence at the stadium since hosting his album livestream event last Thursday (July 22). During his livestream, West debuted tracks featuring JAY-Z, Lil Baby, Pusha T, Roddy Ricch and Travis Scott. DONDA was set to arrive last Friday, but now has a release date of August 6.
