The illustrious reign of hip-hop mogul Kanye West officially began 14-years-ago today.
The polarizing rapper from Chicago released his debut album “The College Dropout,” on February 10, 2004, which turned out to have a major influence in the music industry. Kanye’s masterpiece earned him his first Grammy Award in 2005 for “Best Rap Album” and eclipsed the top of the Billboard charts, as well as receiving the respect of multiple magazine publications as one of the best albums ever.
The album has 21 songs that features timeless classics, such as “Through the Wire,” “Slow Jamz” and “All Falls Down” just to name a few.
It’s hard to imagine that the album is already 14-years-old, but out of all the great albums that the world has been privileged to receive from the great Kanye West, “The College Dropout” will always rank among the top of his collection, as well as in the history of hip hop.
