The “Famous” rapper is recreating his childhood home right in the center of Soldier Field stadium in Chicago, where he’ll be playing his new album on Thursday.
According to Page Six, Kanye made yet another drastic change on his Instagram page — deleting all of his previous uploads over the weekend. As a replacement, he shared several snaps that only related to his Donda album. He started the change with a photo of the home he shared with his beloved late mother, who died in 2007 from “some preexisting coronary artery disease and multiple postoperative factors following surgery.”
As of this writing, the upload received over 1.5 million likes. Followers also wrote dozens of messages for the rapper.
“Drop Donda this time pls,” a fan begged.
“Just please, please drop the album,” echoed a second commenter.
“The most random things I’ve ever seen came from Kanye,” wrote the third follower.
He’s Very Sentimental

The New York Post showed exclusive pictures of Kanye’s former 1,600-square-foot house, which has been with different owners since his mother put it up on sale in 2003 for $121,000.
Years ago, the “Gold Digger” rapper visited his childhood home with fellow musician Jay Z. The same house was also featured on one of the episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2018. As the place held many memories of him and his deceased mother, Kanye purchased the house back in 2020 for $225,000.
His new album, Donda, will serve as a tribute to his late mother. The songs have already been played at two separate listening parties in Atlanta. Kanye is also reportedly going to release the album following his Soldier Field performance, but fans remain skeptical about the news.
His Creativity Knows No Bounds

Kanye is known for his untraditional ways, especially when it comes to his music. In July, Kanye shared a peek at his living situation while working on his forthcoming album.
Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband was said to live inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz stadium while finishing Donda.
His humble abode featured a twin bed, a TV, and a small closet space — way too different from his $14 million Wyoming Ranch and his Calabasas estate, which he shared with his ex-wife and four kids.
In a report by Billboard, Kanye revealed Donda in front of a sold-out crowd at the Atlanta stadium after announcing the listening party just two days before. He wore a now-signature face mask and a red puffer jacket during the event, and he barely said a word while unveiling his new music. Some of the guests at the party were several big names, including Rick Ross, Khloe Kardashian, and his estranged wife, who showed up in a red jumpsuit with their kids.
