Kanye West taps into his production bag of soulful samples for his latest track. On Sunday, July 13, West celebrated what would’ve been his late mother’s 71st birthday. Ye took to Twitter to reveal the track that begins with his mother quoting KRS-One’s “Sounds of da Police.”
The Yeezy CEO starts his verse after 90 seconds into the track. The song’s soulful production brings nostalgia to any Kanye West fan.
“Mama I need you to tuck me in, I done made some mistakes and they rubbed it in,” Ye raps in the song.
Dr. Donda West was her son’s number one fan and biggest supporter. She served as a professor and Chair of the Department of English and Speech at Chicago State University for a number of years before her untimely passing.
Kim Kardashian-West posted a previous video of Kanye singing 2005 song “Hey Mama” with Donda West in honor of her late mother-in-law.
