As mentioned earlier this week, The College Dropout turned 10 years old this past Monday. Press play and watch a young Kanye speak his truth.

    He didn't lose a single thing, he gained so much. He does act irrationally but it's mostly due to the bullshit he's has to go through. You obviously don't know what soul is if you think what he makes today has no soul. Yeezus was FILLED with soul and emotion.

  • POOCHIE

    MAN THAT SHIT WAS BEAUTIFUL, COLLEGE DROPOUT TRULY IS AN ALBUM THAT SPEAKS FOR EVERYBODY WITHIN THE AGES OF 16-24, OR ANYBODY TRYNA FIND THEIR WAY IN LIFE. AND NO WONDER WHY THIS MOTHERFUCKER SO ARROGANT NOW, PEOPLE BEEN DOUBTING HIM SINCE THE BEGINNING. HE WAS ABLE TO USE THAT DOUBT AND TRANSLATE IT INTO SUCCESS WHICH IN TURN MADE HIM ARROGANT. HE HAS THAT "I TOLD YOU SO" ATTITUDE.

    Kanye re-booted that feeling i got when i was listening to In Search Of... yal youngins dont no how that shit felt. all yal got is copy cats. yep even Kendrick. And its sad that one of the most original nigga you have now, Trinidad James, you write off as a jiggaboo. did u not hear Dont Be Safe. smh. fuck it. Go listen to Cole copy shit. Go listen Jay z rap like 2 chainz. Or fake Andre 3000's. Ha i see why Macklemore Will Smith rappin ass got the Grammy. At least the Bay got some cool shit happening. ATL Migos are ok. J.Nics Miami is good. fuck it. Big Sean is good. Where the fuck is Cudi? And COLE is not a street nigga not a Queens nigga Not a Don type nigga. How he let Nas Down. stfu. AZ let nas down. Mega LET NAS DOWN. NIGGA you let Petey Pablo down. FUCK UP!

    This is very inspiring to me I feel like I'm exactly in his shoes right now. People are doubting me too just because my sound is a little different, and its hard to catch attention of blogs like Hypetrak without a relationship or representation etc. I'm Asking yall if you could please make his top comment so I can grab Hypetrak's attention. I'm going to post my soundcloud page and if you fuck with it please hit this comment with a like. IDK if this going to work but its worth the try.
