That old saw about how you can't go home again? Nobody told Kanye West, who has rebuilt his childhood dwelling -- or at least the shell of it -- for the upcoming Donda album listening party inside Soldier Field in Chicago. The rapper and Windy City native kept things more minimal for the previous two album previews at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, but for the upcoming event, it looks like he's upping the game.
Billboard can confirm that the Thursday (Aug. 26) listening event will feature a replica of the home Yeezy grew up in the city's South Shore neighborhood. The move comes just more than a year after Kanye reportedly bought the house his late mother, Donda West, first purchased back in the early 1980s and sold in 2004.
