Kanye West is set to present his latest album that is titled after his mother in Atlanta and the HBCU where his mother taught in the city will be in attendance.

Donda West passed away in 2007 following reported complications stemming from cosmetic surgery. It is no secret that she was an inspiration for the rapper.  Some believe some of his public rants in the past may have stemmed from not having his mother around to reel in his emotional breakdowns. It is fitting that perhaps ‘Ye has now find solace in the loss to release this project in her name.

The artist who promised fans the album a year ago is now making due with his promise by going all out in 2021 for this project. Earlier today, at the Mercedes-Benz stadium, Atlanta rapper 2Chainz was caught on camera recording music which may be apart of the album last minute. A sellout crowd is expected at the venue for the event that begins at 8:00pm.

It has been reported that West has set aside thousands of seats for the event for students at nearby Historically Black Colleges and Universities, including Morehouse, Spelman, and Morris Brown.

The latter higher learning institution was where Kanye’s late mother, Donda West, was once an educator, and today (July 22), the school’s president, Dr. Kevin E. James, tweeted the rapper.

“@kanyewest My name is Kevin James, President of HBCU Morris Brown College here in Atl,” he wrote. “Your mother taught at our college for 20 years and was Chair of the English Department. I will be at your concert tonight and wanted to present you a resolution on behalf of your mother.” Dr. James also tagged Ye’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian to make sure the message was delivered.

Thanking  the social media world, the president of Morris Brown College was able to secure a meeting with West’s team.
