Kanye West Then & Now On The 10th Anniversary Of 'the College Dr










I am honored and humbled by my fans, for the unwavering support and love over the past 10 years. "I wake up every day trying to give something back to you that you can rock to and be proud of. Ten years later, I am still the same kid from Chicago, still dreaming out loud, still banging on the door. The doors may be heavier, but I promise you WE WILL BREAK THEM." In his first Rolling Stone feature in 2004, published around the release of Dropout, West described himself as "the funny version of Dead Prez." "I'm the rap version of Dave Chappelle," he said. <br>Source: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/kanye-west-looks-back-on-college-dropout-10th-anniversary-20140210












Kanye West Explains Original “College Dropout” Title, Jay Z Denying Collaborations In Rare 2002 Interview



But Meyers is showing that he wants to go straight for the pop culture jugular by booking Kanye West and "Girls" creator and star Lena Dunham as guests for his show's premiere week. What will Kanye say? Judging from his previous late-night appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel" following a brief Twitter feud, chances are it will be talked about for days after. We can only hope he and Meyers get into it on Twitter, something that would really spice up that interview. <br>Source: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1722219/kanye-west-lena-dunham-seth-meyers.jhtml







It was certified double-platinum by the RIAA and featured contributions from John Legend, Twista and Jamie Foxx. The album was nominated for 10 Grammy Awards in 2005.

On drugs: "And I don't, usually smoke / But pass the dro." "My ego is my drug. My drug is, Im watch Kim Kardashian and Ray J better than all you other motherfuckers." On his female companions: "Bring some friends you cool with / I'mma bring the Cool Whip / Then I want you to strip / See you is my new chick / So we get our grind on." "I felt like our love story is like, a love story for the ages. I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing, where its like... shes a reality star, and Im a rapper." On spending: "What'cha gon' buy next / Whatever new trend it is / I'm tryin' to spend my stacks / And I'm so broke I look back like 'Damn, was I on crack?' / I mean twelve platinum chains, was I on that?" "They probably all in the Hamptons / Braggin' 'bout what they made / Fuck you and your Hampton house." On Chicago: "Chi-town, Southside, worldwide / Cause I rep that 'til I fuckin' die." "Never think that I'm not from Chicago for one second and think you can walk up and disrespect me and my family constantly." On death: "There's been an accident like GEICO / They thought I was burnt up like Pepsi did Michael / I must got a angel / Cause look how death missed his ass" "After I lost my mother there were times I felt like I would put my life at risk, I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for." On family: "And this is for the family that can't be with us / And this is for my cousin locked down, know the answer's in us / That's why I spit it in my songs so sweet / Like a photo of your granny's picture / Now that you're gone it hit us." "All I care about is my family, I care about protecting my girl, protecting my baby, and protecting my ideas and my dreams."

According to Kanye, Jay Z denied him when approached about appearing on both Jays first two singles offBlueprint 2, Excuse Me Miss and 03 Bonnie & Clyde. Half of Kanyes verse for Excuse Me Miss Was released on hisFreshman Adjustment 2mixtape on his Excuse Me Miss Remix song and he released a freestyle on 03 Bonnie & Clyde. However, in the interview, Kanye raps a completely different verse intended for 03 Bonnie & Clyde than the one that appeared on his freestyle: Kanyes Unreleased 03 Bonnie & Clyde Ayo, planes, trains, automobiles The G500 with the auto-roll wheels The Pinot Grigio got em on chill See now, see me hoe, I got that deal If you trying to build, I bet youd like that My father was a Black Panther with Geronimo Pratt And back in college I aint run with no frat I just ran with the track that put the Chi on the map[1] Now the Roc in the building UIC Pavillion Two years ago I was just a civilian Now every chickenhead swear I got millions In area codes with unidentified children I used to want the Jordans thats most recent Now I throw Jordans on the whip just to look decent Just to get pulled over by the precinct, so frequent Its like Im back being a delinquent They want to know where I live, stay and work How a young black n*gga get all these perks How I stack my paper, got adidas in every flavor Excuse me officer, I dont know Rod Laver Or Stan Smith What they dont understand is, how I got that color in canvas. One prominently poignant part of the interview is Kanye Wests idea of what his at-the-time unfinished debut albumCollege Dropout meant. <br>Source: http://allhiphop.com/2014/02/10/kanye-west-explains-original-college-dropout-title-jay-z-denying-collaborations-in-rare-2002-interview/

In fact, there appears to be plenty of tickets available for one of his upcoming shows. He has a concert scheduled at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and it appears that the concert promoters have decided to drop the tickets fro $65 to $35 in hopes of getting more people to the concert. The tickets have been on sale for this concert for quite some time, but there are hundreds of tickets available. Many of the tickets have been bought or gifted to radio stations for giveaways. <br>Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/kanye-west-s-concert-tickets-are-not-as-popular-anymore
