London, November 16 : Rapper Kanye West has revealed that his new album '808s and Heartbreak' has been inspired from all that he suffered following his mum's death.
The ten-time Grammy Award-winner in a newspaper interview revealed that his latest album bore the marks of his personal loss - the agony of losing his mum.
"My lifestyle affected Mum because she was my manager so when I moved to California she did too. I feel that in California she did stuff that she wouldn't have done if she was still in Chicago," News of the World quoted him as saying
"I was devastated and down. But I wrote this record in three weeks because it came from the heart. It took a lot of devastation for me to make - but everything has come from my hell.
"But I have to look at life with hope and love now. From here on out, I'll do exactly what I want to do," he added.
The singer's mother, Donda West, had died in November 2007 owing to complications arising from cosmetic surgery involving a tummy tuck and breast reduction procedure.
