Yesterday (July 22) was a big day for Kanye West.
After allowing industry insiders to hear some of the tracks of his 10th studio album, Donda, the Chicago emcee hosted a grand listening party at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Shortly after the live event, the city presented him with two generous gifts.
Ye was presented with a plaque, announcing that July 22 will not only mark the anniversary of his listening extravaganza, but will also be a day to celebrate the recently-declared Kanye West Day.
Kevin James, the president of Morris Brown College, gave West the Dr. Donda West Meritorious Service award, which honors his late mother, who served as Chair of the English Department and taught at the HBCU for nearly 20.
