Billboard writes that a number of attendees shared snippets of songs to social media after the event.
While the outlet notes that the lyrics and music are of somewhat poor quality, it sounds like Kanye is rapping about a family situation involving an absent father. Another clip that circulated on social media features rapper Baby Keem rapping over a gospel arrangement.
Speculation that Kanye would be dropping his new album soon was fueled by Revolt TV host Justin Laboy, who tweeted: “Kanye played his new album for me & [Kevin Durant] last night in Vegas. Man listen! The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back.”
LiveNation also announced on Monday that the rapper would be heading to Atlanta this week for an event billed as “Kanye West Presents A Donda Listening Event”, per Variety.
The listening party will take place at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium this Thursday at 8 p.m. and fans can purchase tickets on Monday at 5 p.m. ET at Ticketmaster.com.
Kanye had previously announced that he would be releasing Donda last year, sharing a photo of the tracklist to Twitter.
