In 2010 I was that kid who was raised on classic rock and turned his nose up at hip-hop. He was that guy who wrote “Gold Digger,” ruined a Daft Punk song and who told the world that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” I rolled my eyes when he jumped on stage at the VMAs and laughed in agreement when Obama called him a jackass. I enjoyed the few tracks my friends played before the bell rang and didn’t pay it much mind.
I enjoyed indie and I’d just begun to get my feet wet in the Philly music scene with the likes of Dr. When I came across so I asked if it was a Bon Iver remix — they laughed and shook their heads. But like any kid who figured out how to use Mediafire, I had money on my i Tunes account, so I bought the album a few days later.
It was preceded by the bombastic, King Crimson-sampling single "Power." A sprawling and audacious album, MBDTF debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and also went platinum.
While the album was still hot, West recorded the aggressive and boast-heavy Watch the Throne with Jay-Z and numerous producers and songwriters.
His dapper fashion sense set him apart from many of his rap peers, and his confidence often came across as boastful or even egotistical, albeit amusingly so.
“Dark Fantasy,” “Gorgeous,” “POWER,” “All of the Lights.” It was a high.
Indeed, it was his beatmaking prowess that got his foot in the industry door.
Though he did quite a bit of noteworthy production work during the late '90s (Jermaine Dupri, Foxy Brown, Mase, Goodie Mob), it was West's work for Roc-a-Fella at the dawn of the new millennium that took his career to the next level.
Consequence's Don't Quit Your Day Job and Common's Finding Forever, both released by GOOD, were chiefly produced by West; the latter proved to be particularly popular, topping the album chart upon its release in July.
And then there was West's third solo album, Graduation, which was promoted well in advance of its September 11 release (a memorable date that pitted Kanye against 50 Cent, who in one interview swore he would quit music if his own album, Curtis, wasn't the top-seller).

He was a media darling, appearing and performing at countless awards shows (and winning at them, too), delivering theatrical videos to MTV, and mouthing off about whatever happened to cross his mind.
