Kanye West is setting aside thousands of free tickets to his “Donda” listening party to several Atlanta-area HBCUs, Page Six can exclusively reveal.

The “Jesus Walks” rapper, 44, is hosting the listening event on Thursday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta at 8 p.m. and has donated 5,000 tickets to faculty, staff and students of Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, Spelman College, Morris Brown College and ITC.

Fans will also get to hear music from “Donda” during a Beats commercial airing Tuesday night during Game Six of the NBA Finals. We’re told the ad is an “emotional tribute” to runner Sha’Carri Richardson.

The highly anticipated album was first revealed to be completed — and ready for release — over the weekend when West hosted a secret listening party in Las Vegas.

“Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas,” web personality Justin LaBoy tweeted, stoking the trending Twitter fan frenzy.
