It’s no secret how much Kanye West loved his momma Donda West. In this extended clip of an MTV special that aired a few years back we were given a closer glimpse of how dynamic their relationship was.
In the first half of the clip you’ll see Momma Donda reciting one of Ye’s favorite verses that he recited as a teenager but never recorded. The two sat together and tried their best to recite the lyrics verbatim and when they were finished she looked at him and said:
Momma West: I loved that rap, — you didn’t think it was good? Now its mad wack, huh?
Kanye: Naw its good. That shows you if you have a rap that actually means something its good.
Momma West: You gone come back with it?
It’s amazing to see how she supportive she was not only in this video but throughout his career. The second half of the video brought us to tears as we watched the intimate son and mother heartfelt duet to Kanye’s Hey Mama song. Although she passed suddenly back in 2007 she still lives through his lyrics, interviews and through the foundation he created in her honor titled Donda.
