*Someone has to be responsible for the death of Kanye’s mom, Donda, and it wasn’t him. He recently said that if it weren’t for pesky Los Angeles culture, his mother would be living today.

Kanye West’s mother tragically died after complications from plastic surgery in 2007. He said if she were in New York, she would have been ok, living well, he told XXL magazine.

“When I moved to LA, she moved to LA,” West writes in the magazine. “And she wound up in a place that would eat her alive. “Even if I stayed in New York, it wouldn’t have been like that. If I had lived in New York, she’d still be here.”
