Short intro

The College Dropout is the debut studio album by American rapper and producer Kanye West. It was released on February 10, 2004, by Def Jam Recordings and Roc-A-Fella Records. In the years leading up to release, West had received praise for his production work for rappers such as Jay-Z and Talib Kweli, but faced difficulty being accepted as an artist in his own right by figures in the music industry. Intent on pursuing a solo career, he signed a record deal with Roc-A-Fella and recorded the album over. The College Dropout - Kanye West.

The College Dropout Tracklist. Intro Lyrics. For Kanye to make an album called College Dropout, it was more about having the guts to embrace who you are, rather than following the path society has carved out for you. The inspiration for finally making his own music came when he was involved in a near-fatal car crash. With his jaw wired shut, he recorded the albums lead single, Through the Wire, which was released on September 30, 2003. On December 2, 2003, Kanye released the albums second single, Slow Jamz. The College Dropout Q&A. How did this album chart . Kanye Wests The College Dropout was one of the most astonishing debut albums in hip-hop history. Multi-faceted, idiosyncratic and packed with enough pop nous to conquer the charts, it brought him both critical acclaim and huge commercial success. Success certainly didnt happen overnight, though. Snapped up by Jay Z as an up-and-coming producer, Wests groundbreaking work on the rappers classic 2001 album, The Blueprint, was followed by a frustrating few years as he sought to gain acceptance as an artist in his own right. play album. Kanye West, Syleena Johnson - All Falls Down. Kanye West - I'll Fly Away. Kanye West - The New Workout Plan. The mix of styles and subject matter is breathtaking. Pop hits rub up against vulnerable moments. Street anthems mingle with wild humor. And Jesus Walks challenges beliefs like no other rap song before it. Kanye West attacks the set with confidence and conviction. The week The College Dropout came out, three singles featuring his handiwork were in the Top 20, including his own Through the Wire. A daring way to introduce himself to the masses as an MC, the enterprising West recorded the song during his recovery from a car wreck that nearly took his life - while his jaw was wired shut. Kanye's first studio album, The College Dropout, continues to resonate in pop culture 10 years after its release, not only because of Kanye West but all of those who were a part of the creation. Everyone who contributed was an underdog as well, trying to prove themselves to their hometown, label executives, peers, and most importantly, themselves.
