Ye’s latest musical offering is “Donda,” a song that he dropped on Sunday named after his late mother. Donda West, who passed away in 2007 from cosmetic surgery complications, would’ve turned 71 on Sunday.
The song opens up with Ye’s mom reciting the lyrics to KRS-One’s “Sound of da Police,” and Ye comes in around the midday point. The video shows various footage, including an old shot of Ye and his mom.

“The Devil is using you, confusing you / Our job is to understand who is who / Righteous indignation in this nation / We gon’ start a revolution in this basement / And at the end of the day it’s truly restless / Y’all had y’all statistics and all them goofy questions,” raps Ye.
