Managementobit: Donda West

According to reports on ABC News, Donda West, Kanye's mother, has died "during a medical procedure."

Donda had been a professor at Chicago State University; just as her son dropped out of a course there to become a rapper, she, too, quit the uni to become his manager.

Earlier this year, she published a book, Raising Kanye: Life Lessons From the Mother of a Hip-Hop Superstar, during publicity for which she compared her son to Jesus. She was listed as CEO of West Brands LLC.

There is NOTHING in your post to suggest that she died during a medical procedure. Even the link you provided doesn't say that.

She was a sweet nice neighbor. I am shocked at the news of her death. She was out on Halloween night as friendly and caring as could be passing out candy to all the kids. May she rest in peace.
