To be honest, revisiting Late Registration would probably be more fun for me (I’ll always love that album), but instead we’re going all the way back to his 2004 debut, The College Dropout. I remember not being a big fan of the album until finally catching the video for Jesus Walks on MTV. The rest of it then clicked, and I’ve been a Kanye fan since. Big thanks to MTV, I think that was probably the last time they did anything useful for me … but I guess that’s a #TBT topic for another week.
In any case, hit play and let The College Dropout flow out of your speakers as you remember when Kanye’s ego was huge but not incomprehensibly enormous.
