Rest In Peace, Donda West

Kanye and Donda

Sometimes it’s quite serious.


I click on Yahoo!’s homepage to check out my personal e-mail. I see “Kanye West’s Mother Dies”. I say, “You gotta be fuckin’ kiddin’ me.” I click around.

I see this:>1=7702 .

I think to myself, “That sucks. Kanye’s gotta be a fuckin’ wreck right now.”

I think to myself, “I know people are gonna talk slick about this.”

I think to myself, “I was gonna use ‘Hey Mama’ (from Kanye’s Late Registration) as the song I dance with my mom to at my wedding.”

I think to myself, “Kanye was probably gonna use it too, but now he can’t.”

I get sad.

I think to myself, “Bol’s gonna mock this sad event in a post…and I won’t ever get the opportunity to beat him with a fucking sledgehammer for it.”


Rest in peace, Donda. Your son’s music has helped shine light on some truly dark, dark times in my life–and that’s one of the many, many reasons your passing is a sad one.

    yeah funny how it was so out of the blue like there was no mention of cancer or anything like that. I guess we will have to wait for the cause of death. RIP

    Dam, never good to hear news like that…

    I heard that this was a cosmetic surgery gone wrong type of deal. Must have been complications while she was knocked out.

    Sad, sad story. Never before has a rapper been so open about the respect and love he has for his mother. She was his manager, his best friend, all of that. This will hit dude hard.

    I was a foster kid and never had my moms, but I know this is some hard shit to deal with…
