R.I.P Dr. Donda West...

Many Kanye West fans, and even those who aren't fans, know how close he is to his mama. He made it known in every way from bringing her as his date to the Grammy's, making her his manager and penning an entire song about her, "Hey Mama," on his sophomore album "Late Registration." So, running across this news is particularly shocking and you can't help but wonder if Kanye, his life or his music will ever be the same. R.I.P. Dr. Donda West.

Yep, he loved his mamma and it was all over his music.

I think that in the end we'll see some better music from him because of this. I can't help but say that I didn't like his last album very much. There wasn't the content, struggle, meat & potatoes that was there in the past.

When I think about "Through the Wire" and the story behind it, I don't doubt that Kayne will come out with improved lyrics in a year or two. He seems to do his best when he's down.

Regardless, very sad.

You know what Elizabeth, I love love LOVE his latest album, but I get exactly what you mean.
It's the same way I feel about Amy Winehouse, whose music I also love, love, LOVE. I wonder if she weren't 'cracked out' as she is alleged to be, would her music be as absolutely AWESOME as it is right now, you know?

But I slightly digress...

Anyway, I say all that to say I agree with you. Here's my prediction: He'll go on hiatus for awhile and then make one of the greatest comeback albums ever. It'll be loaded with lots of raw pain and passion and once again set a new standard in hip hop music. In music period.

Lol, I know that's pretty big, but I'm just saying. He was already blowing our minds before, if/when he makes it out of this, I can't even imagine what'll be next.
