- Kanye West – Donda
Kanye West pays homage to his late mother Donda West.
On Sunday evening, Kanye West previewed a song titled “DONDA,” which starts with his late mother reciting KRS-One lyrics from “Sound of da Police” before he cuts in just after the 1:30 mark. For context, the song/tweet comes on what would have been Donda West’s 71st birthday.
Have a listen and watch the accompanying video below:
