Album:
Unreleased

After his much talked about performance at last weekend’s 50th annual Grammy awards, DJBooth is proud to feature Kanye West’ live version of Hey Mama, a dedication to his mother, Dr. Donda West, who tragically passed away on November 11th of last year.  Following a Glow In The Dark Tour-preview rendition of the Graduation chart-topping single, Stronger, West began the single-verse rendition of a song he wrote for his mother prior to the release of his second studio album, Late Registration.  The Chicagoan walked away with several Grammy’s on the night, however, to everyone’s amazement, one of them did not include a trophy for ‘Album of the Year.’
