As we all know, Kanye West, and his mom, Donda, were extremely close. Donda was an English professor at Chicago State University.
She was able to balance working full time with raising Kanye on all on her own.
Donda even inspired some of Kanye’s music, including “Hey Mama” and “Only One.”
Sadly, Kanye lost his mother from surgery complications. He still pays tribute to her in concerts though.
He shared with People about the time when his mother was still able to come to all his shows.
“There’s nothing that she loved more than to come to the shows and scream louder than any fan because she was my first fan that was screaming before anybody else and my first manager.”
