Kanye West has made his fans wait a long time for his album and had a huge rollout with Mercedes-Benz Stadium listening party on two different nights.
Over the recent years, Kanye West has made headlines for all the wrong reasons concerning his divorce with reality star Kim Kardashian, running for president, being a Trump supporter, and his mental health. However, on August 5th in Atlanta, Kanye reminded everyone what he became famous for to begin with. His creative flair for the art of hip hop in production and rapping shone tonight as he thrilled the audience in Atlanta.
The buzz started early when Jay-Z rumors of landing in the city swirled online.

The talk right after the event came to a conclusion with Kanye levitating into space was that Jay-Z was in Atlanta to supposedly record music for “Watch The Throne 2”. It was announced by Justin LaBoy.

The list of artists on the DONDA album includes Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, Baby Keem, Don Toliver, Lil Yachty, Lil Durk, Vory KayCyy, Jay Electronica, Roddy Ricch, Westside Gunn Conway The Machine, The Lox, Young Thug, Fivio Foreign, The Weeknd, Jay-Z, 070 shake, and Pusha T.
Entertainment Tonight Canada host, Keshia Chante, who hails from Toronto made the note of seeing the 6ix’s The Weeknd collaborating with Kanye West stating “Abel picked a side”. Whether or not the beef with Kanye still exists (it was recently reported it was no more), does the rest of the city feel the same way?

Another surprising appearance was The Lox who are fresh of their entertaining “Verzuz” battle with Harlem’s Dipset led by Cam’ron, They jumped on an unexpected single about Jesus and people are already anticipating the song may compete with the classic “Jesus Walks” in the deep Kanye West catalog. Regardless, Kanye West has people talking about his music again which is good news for him after having the aforementioned issues in the last couple of years. Get the link for the new album here.
