Donda West, the mother of hip-hop star and Chicago native Kanye West, died early Sunday in Los Angeles.
The former English professor at Chicago State University also was her son's manager and the chairwoman of the Kanye West Foundation.
Earlier this year, she released a book, "Raising Kanye," that chronicled her son's childhood.
A West spokesperson confirmed the death, saying "the family respectfully asks for privacy during this time of grief."

As one who has lost a supportive and loving parent in recent years, all condolences from myself and the BlackRadioIsBack.com family for the brother's loss.
NOTHING is worse than losing someone who loves you unconditionally, much less a parent.
