With Mother’s Day around the corner, people will be showing their appreciation to the women that hold it down in their lives. It’s been almost five years since rapper Kanye West suddenly lost his mother, Donda, to surgery complications. However, it is evident that Mama West is still close to his heart, and serves as his creative muse with his company bearing her name.
A video from 2003 has surfaced showing just how much of a support system and inspiration Kanye’s mother was in his career. In this short clip, the late Donda West recites her son’s old versus shortly before the mother-and-son duo break out signing the lyrics to “Hey Mama,” a ballad from Late Registration. Check out this heart-warming video.
