Kanye West paid tribute to his late mother on what would have been her 71st birthday this past Sunday, July 12th. Releasing a new song titled, “DONDA,” Ye laid out his emotions over KRS One’s “Sound of da Police.” Dr. Donda West, died in 2007 from surgery complications.
“Mama I need you to tuck me in. I done made some mistakes and they rubbed it in. I know you and grandma had enough of them. Why I gotta be so stubborn then? I’m doin’ this one for y’all so we can end racism once and for all.”
Kanye also shared a visual to go along with the dedication to his mother. Kim Kardashian also shared a throwback clip of Kanye and his mom rapping lyrics from his song “Hey Mama.”
