Kanye West – The College Dropout

Kanye West – The College Dropout (Roc-A-Fella, 2004)

After stunning the world with his production work on Jay Z’s The Blueprint, no one believed Kanye West could transition into a solo artist. No one believed he had what it took to go up against hip-hop’s elite. No one thought Kanye West could do it! Not only did Kanye West do it; he flipped the entire script on its head, ushering in a new age of soul-sampling and beats straight from the pearly gates. Even 12 years later, The College Dropout remains an untouched masterpiece only the likes of which Kanye West could bring you. It’s frank, it’s charming and, most of all, it’s real. Jesus walks, alright, and his real name is Kanye West. The College Dropout is available for streaming exclusively on TIDAL.
