Death is never funny, even when it happens to a comedian or a clown, or when the person involved dies doing something stupid like showering with his TV because he didn’t want to miss his favorite episode of Friends or by trying to show his friends how cool he is by running through traffic like he was Frogger, or even if he died jerking off with a dildo jammed in his ass and a fleshlight in his hand wearing women’s panties, but this was emailed to me and I figured I’d throw it up.
I know that it’s not like there’s anything you can do about it and you’re probably not even a fan of Kanye’s but regardless, I am posting it because he was really close to her and sings about her and all that shit, and when death hits, the person either gets totally fucked up and self destructs or ends up producing the best shit of their life. So this is going to have some kind of impact on him and shit he’s involved in.
You should all call your moms and loved ones today, even if they are ashamed of you for being such a loser and fuck up who embarrasses the family and wrote you off 10 years ago asking you to never call home again, just because their still alive and you never know when they’ll drop dead leaving you with a whole lot of guilt for not talking to them when you had the chance that will follow you for the rest of your life and lead you to the bottle more than you’ve already been lead to the bottle.
Rapper Kanye West’s Mother Dies
By JACOB ADELMAN
LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” Donda West, mother of Kanye West and former chairwoman of Chicago State University’s English department, has died, a spokesman for the rapper said. She was 58.
Donda West died Saturday night in Los Angeles, said the spokesman, who asked for anonymity because not all family members had been notified.
“The family respectfully asks for privacy during this time of grief,” the spokesman said.
A cause of death has not been released.
Donda West was known for the strong bond she shared with her son, by whose side she was often seen at parties and award shows.
Kanye West, 30, often spoke of his close relationship with his mother, who raised him alone after her husband left when Kanye was 3.
She was the inspiration for the song, “Hey Mama,” on Kanye West’s 2005 album “Late Registration,” in which he sings: “Hey Mama, I wanna scream so loud for you, cuz I’m so proud of you … I appreciate what you allowed for me. I just want you to be proud of me.”
Donda West frequently defended her son against critics who accused him of penning misogynistic lyrics and other purported transgressions.
“I support my baby,” she said in a Chicago Sun-Times interview. “He is telling how he feels and he is speaking the truth as he sees it.”
In May, she published the book “Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Star,” in which she paid homage to her famous son.
Donda West served as chief executive of West Brands LLC, the parent company of her son’s business enterprises, and as chairwoman of the Kanye West Foundation, an educational nonprofit that works to decrease dropout rates and improve literacy.
Kanye West told the Associated Press in August that he and his mother worked together to devise the foundation’s first program, “Loop Dreams,” which helps public school students get involved in music.
“Me and my mother were discussing ways to give back and came up with the concept,” he said.
Donda West worked in higher education for 31 years, before leaving academia in 2004 to help manage her son’s career, according to a biography on the Kanye West Foundation’s Web site.
She began working at Chicago State University in 1980 and eventually chaired the school’s English department, according to the site. She started her teaching career in the early 1970s as an instructor at Brown College in Atlanta.
Kanye West’s writing partner Rhymefest lamented Donda West’s death Sunday in an appearance on Chicago radio station WCGI.
“She was everyone’s mom,” Rhymefest said. “A spirit never dies, a spirit lasts forever.”
