10 Year Anniversary of ‘The College Dropout’

Yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of Kanye West’s release of College Dropout, probably THE album that jump started his career. An absolute jam of an album – yeah, it’s super mainstream now and was, but still an awesome album. Classic Kanye, lyricism and beats to make anyone sing along. Then album featured collabs from Syleena Johnson, Jigga, Twista, Jamie Foxx, Luda and Mos Def – a solid lineup. A couple of my favorite songs from the album were: All Falls Down, Two Words, Through the Wire (when ‘Ye fractured his jaw in a car accident and rapped through his mouth wired shut) and Family Business (totally underrated and probably the best song).

Oh and Kanye had an awesome cake to commemorate the occasion
