After her passing in 2007, Donda West still is a big figure in Kanye‘s life. There’s “Only One,” a song sung to North West from the perspective of Donda, and his creative brand DONDA. The heartbreak hasn’t left either.
Kanye revealed in an interview with U.K.’s Q Magazine that the heartbreak isn’t simply about losing his mother. He feels like he’s at fault.
“If I had never moved to L.A. she’d be alive,” he says. “I don’t want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears.”
Donda has been a source of inspiration for Kanye. Last year, video surfaced of West rapping “Hey Mama” in front of his mother. West also tweeted a bittersweet tribute to Donda during last year’s Mother’s Day. Rest assured, Donda is sorely missed.
