Kanye West's longtime producer Mike Dean (left) sparked rumors when he appeared to announce he was quitting the Donda project.

Dean, a producer, audio engineer and songwriter on Kanye's albums, sparked rampant speculation when he tweeted and deleted: "F--K THIS!" on Saturday.

The 56-year-old producer moved into the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta at Kanye's request on July 23 to finish the delayed Donda album.

He regularly shared photos taken inside the temporary Donda Studio at the stadium.

But Dean surprised his followers when he tweeted and deleted "F--K THIS! then tweeted about the "toxic stadium air".

He also deleted all of his Donda studio photos from Instagram.

He then tweeted: "Good to be at the house!!!"

As word spread that Kanye's producer had bailed on the Donda project, Dean took to Twitter to insist he's still very much involved in the album.

"I haven't quit anything. The album continues. Lol. People read too much into tweets. Lol."

Dean claimed he was tired of Kanye fans stalking his timeline asking when the album will drop.

Last week, Kanye's collaborator KayCyy tweeted then deleted: "We moving to another stadium."

However, on Thursday, Aug. 12, an insider texted Sandrarose.com: "HE'S STILL THERE!!!"

The fact that Kanye's producer has left the stadium may be a sign that stadium officials finally convinced Kanye to leave, too.

Or maybe not.

Friday, Aug. 13, will be three weeks since Kanye West and his large entourage moved into Mercedes-Benz Stadium to finish his Donda album.

The 44-year-old rap producer moved into the $1.6 billion stadium in Atlanta on July 23, a day after he held his first Donda listening party.

According to reports, Kanye pays $1 million per day for space inside a locker room with access to showers and a temporary recording studio.

Last week, Stadium officials reminded Kanye that he missed the deadline to move out. They handed him an official notice to pack up his Donda studio and move on.

They politely informed Kanye that the stadium is not a hotel.

Officials say his presence is causing problems for stadium employees who must work around him, his entourage, and clouds of marijuana smoke while they prepare the stadium for sporting events.

An hour ago, an insider texted Sandrarose.com with this message: "He's still there!!!"

I'm told stadium officials are brainstorming ways to figure out how to make Kanye leave.

One idea was to pay another stadium to take him off their hands. But so far, there are no takers.

Stadium officials are open to any suggestions.

Kanye West is reportedly moving to another stadium after taking up residence inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium for three weeks to finish his Donda album.

The 44-year-old rap producer moved into the $1.6 billion stadium in Atlanta on July 23, a day after he held his first Donda listening party.

According to reports, Kanye paid $1 million per day for space inside a locker room that had access to showers and a temporary recording studio.

There are rumors that Kanye was asked to pack his things and leave Mercedes-Benz Stadium after he missed his deadline to move out last week. An inside source tells Sandrarose.com that Kanye believed he would be done putting the finishing touches on the album by now.

Two days after Kanye's second Donda listening/release party, the pre-order page on iTunes first went live listing a release date of Aug. 7. However, iTunes is showing Donda with a release date of Aug. 13 while Apple Music lists it as Aug. 15.

Kanye is reportedly moving into another stadium to finish up the album.

According to theJasmineBrand, the news was first reported by an artist named KayCyy, who is allegedly working on the project with Kanye. He wrote, but later deleted,

"We moving to another stadium."

Kanye was reportedly disappointed by the public's reaction to the project so far.

Music producer/DJ Jermaine Dupri explained in a tweet:

"I'm not sure many understand what Ye did because n***as don't have listening parties much in this era, but you play the music and gage what you got by the reactions, then prioritize by best reaction and fix where the response was weak, real A&R shit [sic]."

Kanye West's second Donda listening party at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta was a more theatrical event than the first party.

His estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, arrived with their four children to supported Kanye at his latest listening party on Thursday, Aug. 5.

Kim, 40, and the couple's kids - North, 8, Saint, five, Chicago, 3, and 2-year-old Psalm - were in attendance for the bash.

According to TMZ, Kim was joined by family friends, including her KKW Chief Marketing Officer Tracy Romulus and her children, at the event.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared some photos on Twitter, including one picture of her designer outfit which, like Kanye's and their children's, was designed by Balenciaga.

The fashion house's artistic director, Demna Gvasalia, served as creative director for the Donda listening party.

The reality star and her children also attended Kanye's first listening party on July 22 in his birthplace Atlanta, Ga.

The 44-year-old rapper held the event at the stadium, where he has been living while finishing off the album with his producer, aspiring rappers and other hangers ons.

Thursday night's event, which was livestreamed on Apple Music, was more theatrical than the first preview.

It began with a 24-hour livestream video of the rapper's bedroom at the arena, showing Kanye and others finishing the record. Kanye was also seen sleeping peacefully in a windowless room for several hours before the show.

Out on stage, Kanye stood in a minimal set featuring a bed and was eventually circled in the stage area by a crowd of people.

The album played in a different order to the the previous event and included new songs featuring singer The Weeknd, and rappers Lil Yachty, Lil Durk and Jay Electronica.

The climax of the event saw Kanye "levitating" out of the half empty stadium while his single "No Child Left Behind" played.

According to pre-order information, the 24-track collection will be released on August 9 on Apple Music.

Kanye West wasn't happy that his first Donda listening party, held at his temporary home in Atlanta, wasn't completely sold out.

Despite reports that the Mercedes-Benz Stadium was sold out for his first event -- the upper decks were empty, and Kanye noticed.

So he's hosting another album release party for his upcoming Donda album at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, where he's been living and working on the album since July 22.

Kanye's bedroom at the stadium is not much larger than a college dorm room or a jail cell at the nearby Fulton County lockup in downtown Atlanta.

The spartan living quarters includes a twin bed with a white comforter, a wall-mounted television, an open locker containing a few outfits, a suitcase, a small storage locker that doubles as a nightstand, and a digital clock on the cinder block wall.

Sources in Kanye's camp tell TMZ, Yeezy and his production team locked down Aug. 5 as the date for another Donda album release on the eve of the album drop on Aug. 6.

Kanye pays an exorbitant $1 million per day to live in a space in the locker room with access to a shower and toilet stall.

The $1 million per day goes toward paying the salaries for 100 stadium employees who are at Kanye's beck and call while he's living there. Those same employees will work his upcoming Donda album release party.

Kanye's first listening party broke the Apple Music Global Livestream record with 3.3 million viewers.

Unfortunately, many of them didn't like what they heard.

Fans peppered their reviews with descriptive language such as "trash" and "ass."

TMZ sources say CAA and Live Nation are putting pressure on Ye and his production company to make the second Donda event different.

They fear it won't be easy to sell tickets in Atlanta if the event is a carbon copy of the first.

Remember, Kanye gave away 5,000 tickets to white college students, but the place still wasn't packed to the rafters.

It's unclear what Kanye plans to do the second time around. He could go with a new stage or have a choir and perform the songs live with his celebrity pals like Jay Z.

WSB Radio hosts are donating their private suites at the stadium as part of the 21st annual 95.5 WSB Care-a-Thon going on right now.

You and your friends can use the fully stocked suite for Kanye's listening event. Learn more at choa.org/careathon. Or call 1-888-750-2772.

Stadium officials shared an Instagram photo of Kanye's Donda Studio at the stadium.

Kanye brought in a chef to provide nutritious meals for him and his small entourage while he puts the finishing touches on the Donda album, named for his late mother.

According to sources, Kanye never left the stadium after his sold out album listening party on July 22.

The album reviews were less than stellar and, ever the perfectionist, Kanye installed a studio at the stadium to finish the album.

He was so upset over the poor reviews, that he didn't change his clothes for three days.

Kanye hopes his meager accommodations at the stadium will inspire him to release a classic album like 2004's Grammy Award-winning College Dropout.

Kanye West is reportedly living at Atlanta, Georgia's $1.6 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium while working on his Donda album, now scheduled for release on August 6.

Kanye is reportedly putting the finishing touches on the album at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta where he hosted a listening party on Thursday, July 22.

According to a Twitter user, the rapper ordered 10 beds for himself and his entourage as they pulled all nighters to finish the album.

The father-of-four reportedly built a studio space and living quarters inside a locker room. He even brought in a chef to prepare meals in the locker room.

Despite having access to showers in the locker room, Kanye has reportedly not changed his clothes in several days.

The 44-year-old producer was spotted walking around in the stands during Saturday's Atlanta United soccer game at MBS. He wore the same clothes he'd worn two days earlier.
 

On Saturday, an Atlanta resident shared a photo on Twitter of the rap star wearing the same red YEEZY GAP puffer jacket and red pants he wore to Thursday's listening event. He also wore a stocking mask over his face.

The user captioned the image: "So apparently Kanye West is still walking around Mercedes-Benz Stadium in his #DONDA release party fit."

Kanye canceled his planned July 25 performance at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami, Florida, as he continues to tweak his album.
