Kanye West Tributes His Late Mother On Twitter For Her Birthday

Early this morning (July 13), Kanye West took to Twitter to tribute his late mother Donda West, who died in 2007 of cosmetic surgery complications. Today would have been her 67th birthday.

“Nori asked if the airplane could take her to heaven to see you for your birthday,” Kanye tweeted. “I love you mom.”

Ms. West has long been an inspiration for the Chicago rapper, whether it be in his music (“Only One” and “Hey Mama” are dedicated to her.) or his creative content agency DONDA. The rapper has recently dedicated his forthcoming video game Only One to his mom as well.
