Rest in Peace, Momma West by greenhorne

Rapper and producer Kanye West’s mom died after a cosmetic surgery procedure on Saturday. Donda West was the chair of Chicago State’s English Department until she left the post to become her son’s manager. Last year she wrote a book on the Live Earth performer, called Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Star, (Lynn take note!), and the two were very close before her death.

Recent searches show the doctor performing the operation is plagued with scandal, including impregnating a former patient, having a restraining order enforced against him, as well as leaving a sponge in one of his patients. It looks as thought he might have f-ed up majorly this time too.

Who didn’t f up? Donda West. No, the Kanye this woman raised has dedicated part of his career to raising awareness about conflict-free diamonds. Not only do the ‘blood diamonds’ cause conflicts, killing many Africans annually, the diamond industry also destroys kilometers of coastline.

We’re sure he’s made his mother proud. Greenhorne
