R.I.P. Donda West

If this post talks a little too much, let me apologize in advance. . .

I've been a Kanye fan since before I knew who Kanye was (one of my favorite songs ever is "This Can't Be Life", one of his first productions ever), and I love how I can say I was there in the beginning. Hell, I remember listening to an OLD mixtape (Hovie's Home) and hearing one of his first rhymes ever, a freestyle over LL's "Love You Better" (in fact, click here if you want it) and thinking "damn, this nigga can flow!"

I never hit a lady
But my game
Might abuse em
Buy em boots
Just to tell em
That I Jimmy Choos em
Then take em back
To confuse em

C'mon! You can't deny that genius!

When I first read that his mom died, my heart really sunk. Literally. EVERYONE knows how Kanye felt about his mom. He shouted it out everywhere! If you're like me, then you probably felt like you knew Donda well, too! And that's what makes Kanye so special. . . although he's been elevated to such high levels, you feel like you know him. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and his emotions make him so much like the average joe! Yea, he bitches and moans when he's not acknowledged, but imagine putting in all that work, and your boss doesn't give you your just due. You'd bitch, too!

So why am I such a Kanye stan? Because at the end of the day, I recognize that I, like everyone else, am a little Kanye-esque. I work hard. Give me my respect. I'm gonna speak my mind, whether you like it or not.

And I love my momma. Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much!
