Kanye West’s accountant is no doubt happy the artist is wrapping up his stay at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium because Ye has been dropping six figures daily to set up shop at the government-owned facility.
Sources familiar with the deal tell The Blast Kanye worked out a deal where he was able to take up residency for the past two weeks at the home stadium of the Atlanta Falcons at the rate of $150,000 per day.
The expense was obviously of no concern to Kanye, as he has been known to spend extravagant amounts of money in pursuit of his art and passions. His arrangements at the facility, which is owned by the state of Georgia, included living quarters for himself and entourage members, as well as a private chef.
Photos have surfaced of the living conditions for the Yeezy innovator, which included a pretty basic bed, chairs, and a table set up with recording equipment. Kanye could be seen during live streams over the past several days as he worked on the finishing touches to his “DONDA” album … and also pumped some iron.

It was quickly realized that Kanye would not be leaving Mercedes-Benz Stadium after the initial listening part to “DONDA,” as the rapper made it clear he needed a few more days to edit the album before officially relating to the public. Days after his initial event, Kanye was spotted around the stadium interacting with fans at soccer games and other events.

The 2nd Show
The festivities for Kanye’s second listening party for “DONDA” are already underway, however many fans are already pointing out that Kanye may be trolling. With hours to go for the official release, Kanye fired up his live stream a bit earlier so that fans could watch him catch a little afternoon nap at his living quarters at the stadium.
“He’s the biggest troll ever,” one fan remarked on a Twitter thread featuring the slumbering Kanye.
Kanye’s livestream is now just him sleeping 😭 #DONDA

Kanye has reportedly declared his intention to remain at the stadium for as long as it took to finish “DONDA,” but it’s unclear if he plans to clear out tonight after the big premiere.
