Kanye West Shares Throwback Baby Photo With Mother Donda

Kanye West is missing his mother a little extra today as Wednesday, November 10 marked the anniversary of her passing. Donda West passed away from surgery complications at 58-years-old in 2007. She was an educator and author, and her world-famous son made sure this year that her memory stays alive through his art.

Releasing his tenth studio album DONDA a few months ago, Ye’s latest record includes the introductory “Donda Chant,” as well as many other songs referencing his mother. On Throwback Thursday, Ye dug deep in his picture books and found an adorable shot of himself as a baby, being held by his beautiful mother Donda. He posted the photo on Instagram, leaving it captionless.
