Kanye West's mother, Donda West died last night in Los Angeles at age 58.

Donda was a noted scholar, former chairwoman of Chicago Sate University's English department, and an active college professor for 31 years; before she began managing her son's career. She also recently published a book dedicated to her son titled "Raising Kanye: Life Lessons From the Mother of a Hip-Hop Star."

Donda had just undergone a breast augmentation and tummy tuck surgery. Sadly, she may had died from an allergic reaction to medication she was taking because of the surgery, but this is unconfirmed.

Peace be with her.
