The disgraced shock rocker appeared on stage alongside West in Chicago.
The third live-streamed listening party for Kanye West's highly-anticipated new album Donda took place in his hometown of Chicago, where West set up a replica of his childhood Chicago home inside Soldier Field.
While Bible verses flashed across a screen, West appeared on the stoop of the house surrounded by candles, vehicles, and Marilyn Manson. Manson – real name Brian Warner – is currently facing multiple lawsuits for sexual battery and assault.
Additionally, West shared a new DaBaby feature, which took the place of a previously shared Jay-Z verse, and multiple new songs were added at for album's third public unveiling. The limited-capacity event reportedly did not require live patrons to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
The rapper has been teasing the album release since last year, but Donda has faced multiple delays. The record was supposed to drop on July 24th, 2021, but never appeared for streaming or purchase. It was also supposed to drop after the first listening event in Atlanta, but never surfaced.
