My mom was an English teacher so I know she sends an SMDH from heaven :-).

from Kanye West – DONDA on Rap Genius


Donda West was a professer of English at Clark Atlanta University, and later the Chair of the English Department at Chicago State University. She would retire to serve as Kanye’s manager.

Kanye admits that he has shortcomings in the subject of English (and admits it again later in this so-called “Tweetfest”), though he has said in the past that in high school he “got A’s and B’s, and I’m not even frontin'.”

“I know she sends an SDMH from heaven” means that his mom would be disappointed (“shaking my damn head”) with Kanye for having wrong grammar when she’s a teacher herself, and so close to him.
