Sometimes it is hard to remember that rapper Kanye West is a person with feelings and not just a giant ball of ego walking around in really expensive sneakers. West recently tweeted something that his daughter, North, asked him that will probably humanize Kanye West for you, if only for a second.

West's mother, Donda, lost her life in 2007 due to complications following an elective plastic surgery procedure.

West has always blamed himself for his mother's premature passing at age 58. When Q Magazine asked him what the greatest sacrifice he made for his success was, he simply answered, "My Mom. If I had never moved to L.A. she'd be alive. I don't want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears."

Donda would probably be proud of her son if she could see him today. West is a father of two, husband, fashion designer, rapper, and mama's boy forever.
