We Send Our Condolences

Dr. Donda West, Kanye West's mother, has died due to complications from surgery. Former chairwoman of Chicago State University's English department Donda left her position at in order to act as Kanye's manager.

Dr. Donda West's strength resonates in her son's success. While Kanye's talents are clearly natural, his confidence and his cultivated talents are evidence of his mother's intelligence and strength.

Kanye never missed an opportunity to praise his mother and she was often by his side at various events and venues. Our hearts go out to Kanye and his family.
