AceShowbiz - Kanye West has undoubtedly gone above and beyond to make music. He has been living inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta to complete his new album "Donda", sacrificing his comfort and reportedly costing him a fortune.
The billionaire rapper has been living inside the arena since holding the listening party of the album on Thursday, July 22. It is now revealed that he is allegedly paying $1 million a day to stay in the 2-million-square-foot building.
It's unclear where the number came from, but Hollywood Unlocked spread the news on its Instagram page. Hot 107.9 Atlanta's Instagram page, however, begged to differ, claiming that "it's $100,000…. Not a million."
Some people, meanwhile, still found $100,000 per night is a hefty sum to pay for living quarters. "that's still to much," one person commented. Another weighed in, "that's 3 million a month …insane." A third one agreed it's "still a lot."
Another, meanwhile, argued that the reported $1 million/day rate is correct. "No, they're correct, it's a million a day," the said user argued. Some others, meanwhile, thought that it was unnecessary to spend that much on living quarters, with one fuming, "I hate how they waste money . Mad af yes I am." Another pointed out, "Yawll can fix world hunger but wanna throw money away."
A representative for the Mercedes-Benz Stadium confirmed on Monday, July 26 that Kanye and his crew set up a temporary residence in one of the stadium's locker rooms, converting it in to a recording studio to finish the recording and mixing with Mike Dean.
On the next day, the estranged husband of Kim Kardashian gave fans a look at his bedroom inside the Atlanta stadium. It only features one single bed, a flat-screen TV and a digital clock that were hanging on the walls as well as one small wardrobe with a few clothes.
On Thursday, the officials of the venue briefly changed its name to "DONDA Studio at Mercedes-Benz Stadium" on its official Twitter account in honor of the "Flashing Lights" rapper.
"Donda" is now set to be released on August 6 after initially expected to arrive on July 23.
