Kanye West, "Hey Mama"

Before the tragic passing of Kanye's mother, Donda West, he dedicated this Late Registration cut to her. "Hey mama, I wanna scream so loud for you," he spit ... "you're so beautiful to me, like a book of poetry." In his first live performance of the song after her 2007 death, he broke down in tears. (Photo: PacificCoastNews.com)
