During Kanye West’s Donda listening party at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz stadium on Thursday (July 22), Twitter went wild at the price of the snacks, after someone shared a menu that seemingly listed $35 popcorn and $65 snack baskets. That’s nothing though, compared to the “bag of air” from the show that’s up for auction on Ebay.
Echoing the time that air from the Yeezus tour attracted bids of $60,000 in 2015, the sale quite literally consists of a clear plastic bag labelled “Air from Donda Drop”. The image also shows it being held up in front of the vast white stage where Kanye “performed”, proving it’s the real deal.
Originally listed for $3,333.33, the listing currently stands at $10,200, with 29 bids (though the legitimacy of those bids is difficult to verify). Bidding is scheduled to end on Wednesday, July 28, meaning the winner will likely get their hands on a bag Donda air before they can even listen to the album.
Originally set to arrive on Friday (July 23), Donda has so far failed to materialise. According to the Kanye insider Justin Laboy, the rapper’s tenth studio album is now set to arrive next month, on August 6.
As revealed at the listening party, it includes a long-awaited reunion with Jay-Z, alongside collaborations with Pusha-T, Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Baby Keem, Jeremih, Lil Durk, Roddy Riich, and Pop Smoke, and spoken word from Kanye’s late mother, Donda.
