"We were on the Metro going to a parade downtown," she recalled to RadarOnline.com. "He was with his father, so he knew he had to behave. Ray wasn't too strict as a dad, and it was summer – so that was playtime. He was a well-spoken boy and his father always insisted he had good manners."

"At home he did his chores like making his bed. He was well behaved and if he ever had a tantrum it would not last long and he would go back to being a good boy again."

Brenda could tell from a young age that the child would grow into an artist. "Kanye loved museums and art. His father helped him develop sophisticated tastes," she said. "He used to love animations, artsy stuff, not Disney, that was too mundane. His father helped him to develop sophisticated tastes and become culturally rich."

"He was a cute little boy and he was always very good at school — his mother and father demanded he excel," Brenda continued. "I think most people misunderstand what he is really like. The person you see on stage is just a persona. He is not like that in normal life. He's regular. One of his favorite things to do backstage is play Connect Four."
