Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West gave fans a bit of his personal life after reportedly delving into his love for daughter North West and pain of losing his mother during a recent concert.
During a concert, Mr. West dished out the one regret he has about his life.
The 36 year old rapper admits his “biggest regret” in life is not being able to introduce eight month old North to his late mum Donda, who died in 2007 aged 58. During a heart-felt speech at his concert in Connecticut on Friday night, he said: “These past 10 years have been amazing. There’s been some ups and downs. I made some mistakes and I’ve made some accomplishments. There’s only one thing I regret. There’s only one thing I wish I could change out of everything that’s ever happened. I wish that my mother could’ve met my daughter.” (Female First)
Kanye went on to credit his daugther and superstar fiancée Kim Kardashian for giving him something to live for.
Kanye lost his mother due to surgery complications after a breast reduction and undergoing liposuction seven years ago, and he opened up about the effects her passing has had on him last year during an appearance on Kim’s mum Kris Jenner‘s chat show. He said: “‘There were times [after my mum’s death], I would put my life at risk. I didn’t have something to live for. Now I have two very special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for.” (Female First)
Last summer, Kanye launched a non-profit organization in his late mother’s honor.
The Yeezus star recently announced the opening of his non-profit organization Donda’s House, which he created in memory of his late mother Dr. Donda West. The charity is geared toward Chi-town teens with the focus of “implementing arts and literature experiences that transform youth.” “My mom spent her life as an educator and I am happy that Donda’s House can pick up her torch and honor her life’s mission,” the rapper said in a press release.

Previous reports revealed Kanye would heavily rely on Donda’s House co-founder Rhymefest to get the program rolling.
The non-profit’s main youth education and training program is called “Got Bars.” Donda’s House co-founder and assistant director Che Rhymefest Smith says it “will change our youth musically, get them healthy and keep them busy in a creative, peaceful environment. “I am so happy to launch “Got Bars” to honor Kanye West’s mother’s memory and to fulfill one of my Aldermanic campaign goals,” Smith said. “I know it will be an even stronger program because of our partnership with the ARK of St. Sabina.” (Chicago Defender)
