Default Kanye West Thanks Fans For Support After His Mother's Death


Kanye West certainly likes to talk, but since the death of his mother, Donda, in November, the outspoken and colorfully brash rapper/producer hasn't made many public remarks beyond touching tributes he gave after her passing, while he toured overseas.

On Wednesday, however, West posted a brief entry on his blog, KanyeUniverseCity.com, for the first time since November 10th, 2007, the same day his mother died from cosmetic-surgery complications.

Kanye thanked everyone for their support and unpredictably wrote about what helped him zone out during his European tour: the game Connect Four. In the game, which is played in a vertically suspended grid, players take turns dropping in discs until one player has four of them in a row (vertically, horizontally or diagonally).

It seems West has become quite the player and has everyone in his camp involved too, from his manager, Don C; to Common's manager, Derrick Dudley; to fellow rappers Consequence and Jay-Z.

At any time, West detailed, anyone could be beat — although Cons and Dudley were two of the few who were actually better than him.

But West wrote of the legendary Connect Four player he kept hearing about: Beyoncé.

West explained that he had to duke it out with B. And he and the former Destiny's Child frontwoman matched up on New Year's Day at Jay-Z's brand-new 40/40 sports bar in Las Vegas.

It wasn't even close.

"She beat me 9 times in a row," 'Ye wrote. "And I didn't even spaz, lol."

Kanye posted three photos of him and Beyoncé battling it out, and he appeared in good spirits in a picture accompanying the entry of his sole victory over B.

Oh yeah, and check out the 40/40 turkey burgers if you're ever in town, according to 'Ye. They are the best ones he's had in his life.
