If there's been one constant in Kanye West's music since he debuted it's been his relationship with his mother. After her death in 2007 he poured his grief into 808s & Heartbreak and earlier this year he released "Only One" as a sort of tribute from her to his daughter North West

In a new interview with print magazine Q, West opens up about Donda's death and admits that he still blames himself for her passing. When asked about the sacrifices he's made for his success, Ye reportedly said, "My mom." "If I had never moved to L.A. she'd be alive," he also told Q. "I don't want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears."

During the interview Ye also touched on how he manages to make time with his just-turned 2-year old daughter. "While [Nori's] here in Europe I have to have six hours a day with her because otherwise I'll just work and she'll get scheduled around meetings," he said. "Instead, the meetings get scheduled around her."
