Kayne West has a lot going on right now. DONDA, his 10th studio release, is set to drop soon. He’s already having listening parties, and even threw shade at Kim Kardashian in Atlanta while she was in attendance.
The city of Atlanta really appreciated Kanye West for holding that listening party in their city. The city presented Ye with a plaque backstage after his performance at Mercedes-Benz Stadium according to TMZ. An Atlanta born man, Kanye now has his own day in the city as well.
July 22nd was declared “Kanye West Day” in Atlanta. Kanye’s mother, Donda West, taught at Morris Brown College for almost two decades, and the school’s president was there to give Ye a very special gift. Ye’s mother is now the namesake for a new resolution at Morris Brown College, the Dr. Donda West Meritorious Service.
We’ll have to see how Kanye West’s next album sells, but he’s already getting plenty of hype, especially in Atlanta. He won’t be taking any shots at his soon-to-be ex-wife in the lyrics of this new record, but he still had a bit of shade to sling during the event last night.
