Chicago hip-hop veteran Kanye West is giving fans another chance. He’s celebrating August 2 as “Yeezy Day,” and the rap legend is restocking the Internet with endless gold.
Various platforms are being restocked with various models of his Yeezy shoes line, which includes sneakers, slides and boots. Sneakerheads are going crazy as they finally have another chance to get some rare pairs of his collector shoes.
So far, the Yeezy Foam Runner MX Cream Clay, the Adidas Yeezy 700 V3 Azael, Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Tail Light, Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Mauve” and the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Synth”, as well as the famous 350 V2 “Zebra” also dropped online.
The Grammy-winning rapper is asking people to take two. The hip-hop star has penciled in plans to do a Donda album release event – again – this week.
Yeezy was back at it with practically the same rollout as his initial July 22 listening party. Kanye’s tickets dropped this morning.
July 30, 2021 (Atlanta, GA): Kanye West Presents The Donda Album Release at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday, August 5 at 9:00PM. Tickets go on sale Monday, August 2 at 10:00am EST at Ticketmaster.com. Tickets for this event are $30.00 to $75.00. The DONDA album release event creative direction is by Demna Gvasalia.
As anticipation for the album grew beyond belief last week, one of SOHH Squad’s youngest members tuned into last week’s Donda album listening event.
Barring any wild and crazy last-minute changes, the world will hear Kanye’s audio masterpiece this Friday. The rap star’s LP would actually arrive 14 days from its original rollout.
Kanye West is moving the release of his long-awaited new album Donda to August 6, a representative for West tells Pitchfork. Media personality Justin Laboy and West collaborator Malik Yusef posted about the August release date last week; TMZ also previously reported an August 6 release date. Donda had been slated to come out on Friday, July 23, via G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam Recordings. (Pitchfork)
Release date buzz initially circulated online last week courtesy of media personality Justin Laboy penciling in an August 6th drop date. The popular influencer – who first broke news of Kanye having a new album on deck earlier in the month – claimed production needs ultimately delayed the LP from an initial July 23 release.
“KANYE WEST WILL MOVE THE RELEASE DATE OF DONDA TO AUGUST 6TH. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE ❤️ HE WANTS TO GIVE HIS FANS THE BEST POSSIBLE PRODUCT WITHOUT RUSHING ANYTHING. HE LOVES YALL WITH ALL OF HIS HEART. GOD BLESS 🙏🏾 #DONDA #RESPECTFULLY”
However, fellow media personality and influencer Dylan Farella had a different perspective. Heading into the weekend, Farella said the project could arrive before this past Monday.
“DONDA been in production all day. Finishing up mixing now. Soon to the DSPs. Should drop by midnight. Worth the wait. … Remember the album drops on Kanye’s time and Kanye’s time alone. Unless this is your first rollout you know anything can happen. One tweet about Kanye and I’ve got a couple dozen death threats in like 30 mins. I’m waiting just as eagerly as everyone else but sheesh, y’all crazy. Tweeted what I’ve heard latest on the project. Didn’t realize fans would then want to kill me for sharing? Anyway, too much negativity so imma delete that tweet. But enjoy the album!”
Following some backlash for possibly prematurely suggesting the album would drop ahead of fans’ weekend goals, Farella returned to Twitter to apparently address Laboy’s promise of an early August Donda release.
“Nothing is ever confirmed. Not today. Not August 6th either.”
