The Decade In Music According to Kanye West
Well, not really, but the above is a surprisingly touching and randomly detailed picture of a specific moment in time for Kanye West. That moment? The making of The College Dropout, his 2004 debut and Entertainment Weekly's pick for best album of the decade--that's the honor he's responding to up top (Jay-Z's The Blueprint, which Kanye also had a big hand in producing, took #2). The exact mix of wild hubris and everyman love for the game that made him such a compelling guy to begin with. [Kanye Universe City]
