Donda West's Book, "Raising Kanye"

Today, January 10th, marks the day 4 years ago, Donda West, Kanye’s mother’s final autopshy revealed she died of “coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors due to or as a consequence of liposuction and mammoplasty”. The death of Donda majorly impacted Kanye and his career, causing him to record the album, 808’s and Heartbreak. Today also marks the day 6 years ago Pennsylvania governor, Ed Rendell, signed 80’s Atlantic Records artist, Cool C’s, death warrant. Cool C was convicted for murdering a female police officer in an armored bank robbery. We also wish a happy 43rd birthday to underground West Coast and horror-core legend, Brotha Lynch Hung.
