Happy 10th birthday to #KanyeWest album that started it all. #TheCollegeDropout

Long before he was Yeezus, Kanye West was a college dropout and a producer-turned-rapper getting ready to drop his debut album. Long before the razor-sharp, grindingly raw sounds of summer 2013’s Yeezus was the sample-heavy, instant classic that turns ten years old today. The Kanye West that created The College Dropout seems vastly different from the Kanye West that created Yeezus, and both are different from the rapper that created My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and so on. But that is precisely what makes Kanye West such a force to be reckoned with in today’s musical climate: he has an artistic vision, the talent to bring it alive, and the audacity to continue to push the envelope in terms of his sound and image.
