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.
