A woman can’t raise a boy to be a man, but she can sure teach him how to Love and respect other women. That’s the beautiful legacy Donda West leaves behind. Sadly, Donda West passed away in 2007 from complications related to cosmetic surgery. But by appreciating and respecting her son, Kanye West‘s art, she taught him to see her beauty and kindness in others.
Watch mother and son sharing their love for rap music in this video clip uncovered by The Fader magazine. The clip was originally part of a MTV documentary on the young Kanye West. At one point, Donda raps the lyrics to an obscure Kanye song that never saw the light of day. “Remember everything you’d do, I’d say ‘that’s a million dollars’,” she told him. But Kanye reminded his mother that he hadn’t made a million dollars yet.
