Kanye West Drops New Song ‘Donda’ in Honour of His Late Mother’s Birthday

    Kanye West has shared a new song and video, ‘Donda’, in honour his late mother, Donda West, on what would have been her 71st birthday. Released via Twitter, the track opens with a recording of Kanye’s mother reciting lyrics from KRS-One’s 1993 single ‘Sound Of Da Police’. Listen to it below.

    Donda West was born on July 12, 1949 and died on November 10th, 2007, one day after undergoing a plastic surgery procedure, due to coronary artery disease and “multiple post-operative factors.”

    “In loving memory of my incredible mother on her birthday,” West tweeted.

    Last month, Kanye put out a collaborative single with Travis Scott called ‘Wash Us in the Blood’, the first taste from his upcoming album, God’s Country, and hopped on the latest single from Ty Dolla $ign, ‘Ego Death’. He also recently announced that he intends to run for president in 2020.
