Kanye West Says His Mom “Would Still Be Alive” If He Didn’t Move to L.A.

Kanye West still blames himself for his mother’s death, in a recent interview with Q Magazine, Kanye opened up about his mother in a way he rarely has. “My mom. If I had never moved to L.A. she’d be alive. I don’t want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears.”

Kanye’s mother Donda West is the subject of a few of his most iconic records, most notably “Hey Mama”, “Only One,”. Yeezy also touches on his daughter, new music, and his dreams of shifting the world’s perspective on fashion and design. ”I challenge people with sonic beauty. For a society that’s been greyed out by mediocrity, it’s like eating a whole bunch of McDonald’s and then you get some real food.”

Kanye’s mother Donda followed him to L.A. in the mid-aughts to manage his career. She died in 2007 at age 58 from complications during a plastic surgery procedure.
