Kanye West has shared a new song, “DONDA,” a tribute to his mother who passed away in 2007 at the age of 58. He posted it on his Twitter account last night on what would have been her birthday.
The two-minute track is mostly made up of Donda West reciting the lyrics from KRS-One’s “Sound Of Da Police” before Kanye comes in with a verse. “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.”
Last week, West gave a long interview in which he disavowed Donald Trump, expressed anti-vaccine views, and continued to talk about his supposed presidential platform. A week before that, he put out a new song, “Wash Us In The Blood,” featuring Travis Scott.
