Kanye West Pays Tribute to Late Mom with New Song 'Donda'

Kanye West is paying tribute to his mom Donda with a new song.

The rapper’s mom would’ve celebrated her 71st birthday on Sunday (July 12) and he marked the occasion by dropping the new song on Twitter.

“In loving memory of my incredible mother on her birthday 🕊 My mom reciting KRS1 lyrics. This song is called DONDA,” he captioned the video.

The song features Donda reciting the lyrics to KRS-One‘s song “Sound of Da Police” and then Kanye comes in with a new verse.

“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,” he says on the song.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you’ve heard the big news that Kanye announced earlier this month.
