Kanye West addresses the crowd and dedicates the Chicago show to his Mom during the 2nd day of Watch The Throne’s chicago stop.

“I wanna dedicate this show,..to the lady that brought me to Chicago, at age 3. The first black female chair of the English department at Chicago State University. Doctor…Donda..Claire Ann..West…I know she up there looking down right now,..and she helped me get through these past four years, when America turned they back on me, when the world turned they back on me for telling y’all the mothafuckin truth…and now I’m leading Grammy nominations…and I just wanna thank Beyonce and Jay-Z for standing by me in my darkest hours…and you Chicago for standing by me in my darkest hours…and giving me a reason to feel like I should stay alive when the world thought I should die and staying by my side.”
