“In loving memory of my amazing mother on her birthday”, West tweeted along with the video. Donda West’s voice appears on the new track, which begins with a recording of the 1993 KRS-One single “Sound of da Police”.

Donda West died in late November 2007 due to complications from a cosmetic surgery treatment. Her death prompted then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California to sign the “Donda West Act” which required patients to receive medical clearance through a physical examination before undergoing elective cosmetic surgery.

In parallel, Kanye West has recently shared a new song, “Wash Us in the Blood”, from her upcoming tenth album God’s Country. He has also appeared on “Ego Death”, a Ty Dolla $ ign single with FKA twigs, serpentwithfeet and Skrillex. For his part, he is also developing his candidacy for the U.S. presidency.
