A huge birthday S/O to one of the most iconic and misunderstood artists hip hop has ever seen, Mr.Kanye “Yeezy” West!
Born on the South side of Chicago, Kanye West has created a household name for himself as an influential rapper and successful producer. Kanye started his career on Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records in early 2000’s and released his debut album The College Dropout in 2004, which resulted in widespread critical and commercial success.
Often criticized for his direct and blunt remarks surrounding politics, award-wins and losses, the music industry and more he has rightfully earned a page in hip hop’s history books.
Many don’t understand what makes him so influential, iconic and downright one of the greatest. Kanye claimed a spot in a game that was reserved for the rough and rigid, he came in spitting about God, fashion and sh** that isn’t found on the streets.
Through his personal and unique style he paved the way for other emcees who not only knew they were different but craved to be different as well.
And for this we salute you Mr. West!
