(breakingnews.iol.ie) - 50 Cent has praised Kanye West's bravery to return to the stage following the sudden death of his mother, insisting the 'Stronger' star's decision to continue with his European tour will help to ease the pain.Dr. Donda West was laid to rest on Tuesday in Oklahoma City, after her death earlier this month from possible complications following cosmetic surgery.But 50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - is adamant getting back onto the stage will help West come to terms with his loss.He says: "That's really an unfortunate situation and I hope he can work his way through it. It's good to see him actually touring: You can work your way back into a comfortable space where you can deal with those situations."And the 'In Da Club' hitmaker can sympathise with West - his G-Unit crewmember Lloyd Banks lost his father while they were on tour together.
He adds: "I was telling him: 'You need to go back and do what you need to do', and he thought maybe I was a little insensitive."But I can definitely understand how that's a huge loss, and how that would be, and then (Kanye's) relationship with his mum had a lot more depth to it than a lot of people's. He was real close to his mum."I hope that he can work his through his way through it ... if you're active, you'll find reasons to smile, reasons to be happy."West was in London on his European tour when he heard about his mother's death - he has since returned to the continent to continue with his concert commitments.
