Kanye West was in attendance for Atlanta United's MLS clash against Columbus Crew on Saturday and well, his surprise appearance at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium certainly got people talking on social media.
The 44-year-old American rapper is reportedly living in the 71,000 capacity stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, while he completes his highly-anticipated (and delayed) album DONDA.

In fact, West has constructed a studio and living space inside the Mercedes-Benz arena so he can put the finishing touches to his new album, according to TMZ.
On Thursday night, he hosted a public playback of DONDA inside the stadium and days later, he was spotted mingling amongst fans as Atlanta suffered a 1-0 defeat against Columbus thanks to a 65th-minute goal from Jonathan Mensah.
Pictures soon emerged online of West wearing a brown mesh mask as he entered the stands.
Kanye West was spotted at the Atlanta United match last night in the same outfit he wore to his #DONDA listening party Thursday night.

The Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the home of MLS franchise Atlanta United, who joined the Eastern Conference in 2017.
The design includes an eight-panel retractable roof, with the circular opening said to be inspired by the Roman Pantheon.
Assembling such an incredible stadium didn't come on the cheap though, with the overall cost believed to be in the region of $1.5 billion.
