Reports coming out of Los Angeles and Chicago are sadly stating that rapper Kanye West's mother, Dr. Donda West, died over the weekend "as a result of complications from a cosmetic surgical procedure." The family released a one sentence statement this morning, which read: "The family respectfully asks for privacy during this time of grief."

Details will be forthcoming over the next few days and CrossFade will keep you posted. For more info, check out the Chicago Sun-Times obituary this morning. -- Jonathan Cunningham
