Hey Mama

I usually don’t like mama’s boys, but with Kanye West I gave an exception. I could tell that Donda West is what kept Kanye together for the most part and I really loved their relationship for that. I think it is so beautiful when you can tell a mother and son’s connection is genuine. And … Continue reading
