It was announced that Kanye West is living in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium until he finishes his long-awaited 10th studio album, Donda, to perfection. Apparently, he isn't the only one living in the stadium. Accomplished engineer and producer Mike Dean is helping Kanye wrap up the album as they mix and master the delayed project.
Fans on Twitter have been speculating that Kanye is keeping his long-time collaborator hostage in the stadium as the two finish the album, causing a frenzy of hilarious memes on the app.
Mike Dean took to his Twitter account to confirm that he is, in fact, not being held hostage by the Chicago rapper and is actually mixing the album from home. Nonetheless, Twitter remains undefeated with its wild imagination and great sense of humor.

Let’s hope that Kanye and Mike Dean are working together over time. Donda was delayed until Friday, August 6, 2021. Hopefully, this is the last of the delays, unless, Kanye may have to consider actually keeping the hardworking engineer hostage.
