Kanye West was all smiles this weekened when he was gifted with a special portrait that clearly touched him.


TMZ reports that as 'Ye was entering his New York City apartment building with Kim Kardashian, an artist stood at the main entrance with a multi-media portrait of West's late mother, Donda West, holding his daughter, North. Seeing as they never met, the MC was moved and took the portrait inside with him.

Andrew Gonzalez, the artist, told TMZ that it took him a day to create the piece. Take a look at the beautiful portrait here.
