Rare footage surfaces of G.O.O.D. Music head honcho Kanye West rapping alongside his mom from 2003.
You don’t have to be a big Kanye West fan to know just how close Yeezy was to his mother. The rapper has expressed it on countless tracks, interviews, and during award shows.
It’s been nearly 5 years since Kanye West’s mother, Dr. Donda West, passed away due to surgery complications, but her legacy still lives on through Kanye West’s music. Today a video aptly titled “Like Son, Like Mother” surfaces which shows Kanye West rapping alongside his mother back in 2003.
Donda, who was an English professor, recites some of Kanye’s rhymes, missing some parts before Kanye jumps in and helps her through the complete verse. Yeezy is currently prepping the release of his upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album ‘Cruel Summer’ which is set to drop this Tuesday, September 18th.
Check out the “Like Son, Like Mother” video with Kanye West and his mom below.
