R.I.P Mama West (UPDATED)


Sadly, Kanye West ’s mother, Donda West, passed away on Saturday in Los Angeles, the rapper’s publicist said late Sunday. She was not only his mother, but his inspiration. Kanye West often spoke of his close relationship with his mom, Donda, who was often seen with him at parties and music award shows.Donda West has passed away. She died suddenly Saturday night in Los Angeles at age 58. Donda West was the inspiration for the song, "Hey Mama," which was on Kanye's 2005 album, "Late Registration." The lyrics include the words: "I appreciate what you allowed for me. I just want you to be proud of me."As much as West expressed appreciation for his mom, his mother often supported her son, especially against critics of his lyrics. In an Chicago Sun-Times interview, Donda West said of her son: "He is telling how he feels and is speaking the truth as he sees it."
