Well before he was famous...
Here's a look into the past for you. Video has come online of a nineteen year-old Kanye West rapping at a Fat Beats store opening in New York City. The 1996 video shows the now-megastar freestyling in a polo shirt, dropping an Alanis Morissette reference in the process.
Five years after that video was recorded he would produce Jay Z's "Izzo (H.O.V.A)" and three years after that his first studio LP The College Dropout dropped. The video was found by the general manager of Fat Beats while he was converting old VHS tapes to DVD for the company's twentieth anniversary.
