BANG! NEWS – Kanye West honoured his late mother Donda with a powerful new song which features her reciting the lyrics to KRS-One’s classic Sound of Da Police.
Kanye unveiled the emotional song alongside a music video featuring old footage from his childhood, and tweeted, “In loving memory of my incredible mother on her birthday.
“My mom reciting KRS1 lyrics… This song is called DONDA“
The song – which was unveiled on Sunday begins with a passionate delivery of the iconic track.
She reads, “There could never really be justice on stolen land. Are you really for peace of equality? Or when my car is hooked up, you know you want to follow me.”
After a minute and a half, Kanye takes over and calls for a “revolution”.
He raps, “The devil is using you, confusing you. Our job is to understand how is who, righteous indignation in this nation. We gon’ start a revolution in this basement.”
He later references his own “stubborn” nature in another powerful line.
He continues, “Momma I need you to tuck me in. I done made some mistakes and they rubbed them in.
“I know you and Grandma had enough of them. Why I gotta be so stubborn, then?”
Although Kanye accepted Donda is not here in person anymore, he previously revealed he’s convinced she’s still supporting him through the highs and lows of life in spirit.
He said, “You know, she’s here with us and she’s guiding us.”
However, the Bound 2 hitmaker does find it hard to accept that his mother isn’t around to watch his children – North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 13 months, whom he has with his wife Kim Kardashian West – play and grow.
