On Sunday, Kanye West paid tribute to his mother, Dr. Donda West on what would have been her 71st birthday with a new single titled, “DONDA.”  Dr. West passed away in 2007 following complications from cosmetic surgery.
West tapped into KRS-One’s “Sound of da Police” on the track, where he featured a clip of his mother reciting some of the record’s most profound lyrics.

“There can never really be justice on stolen land,” she says. “Are you really for peace and equality? Or when my car’s hooked up — know you wanna follow me? Your laws are minimal because you won’t even think about the real criminal.”

“In loving memory of my incredible mother on her birthday 🕊 My mom reciting KRS1 lyrics,” he premiered the song in a tweet. “This song is called DONDA.”

Ye then follows Dr. West, spitting about fake leaders, racism and his past discretions.

“Mama I need you to tuck me in / I done made some mistakes and they rubbed it in,” he raps. “I know you and grandma had enough of them / Why I gotta be so stubborn then? / I’m doin this one for y’all / So we can end racism once and for all.”

He shared a visual that featured clips of him and his mother along with seemingly vintage clips of black films. 

Take a look at the powerful visual below.
