CHICAGO — Kayne West is getting ready for his big listening party at Soldier Field Thursday — and making himself at home.

A replica of the South Side house West lived in while growing up is apparently being built right smack in the center of the stadium.

The rapper actually bought the South Shore house last year for about $225,000. His late mother, Donda West, purchased the home back in the early 1980s and sold it in 2004.

West will be hosting his third listening session for his new album “Donda” Thursday at Soldier Field. Ticket prices range from $150 to $300 through Ticketmaster.

Donda is West’s tenth studio album and is named after his mother. His manager says the album is coming out this Friday.
