Kanye West Raps With His Late Mother Dr. Donda West In 2003 Clip
Kanye West and his mother Dr. Donda West had a very close relationship and her passing severely impacted him. After her death, he went on to launch the DONDA Foundation, write ‘Hey Mama’ and other songs in her honour and even name his clothing line after her. Signs that he truly loved her.
A new clip titled “Like Mother, Like Son” has surfaced from 2003 and it shows West and his mother at their Chicago home spitting a rhyme that in her opinion, was worth a “million dollars.” Dr. West reminds Kanye about this particular rap and he soon spits, “Hard about the streets / But the streets are kinda hard / But here’s another fact that we can’t disregard / Black on black crime is a stab in my back / It really hurts my soul when I hear about that,”
“I love that rap,” said his mother. “You didn’t think it was good?… It was mad wack, huh?” she then asked him. Kanye very respectfully replied, “Nah, it’s good. That shows you if you have a rap that actually means something it’s good. It will stand the test of time if you say something.”
R.I.P. Dr. Donda West.
His late mother would be very proud to know that his abilities in the rap game have awarded him a stellar 17 nominations at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, which airs on BET on October 9th at 8 P.M. ET.
