Thanks to Complex, a vintage video of a then 19-year-old Kanye West has emerged from the dust and cold of someone’s grandmother’s basement! We kid…but we’re not sure who had this video all this time without realizing what it was and who was on it!
In the video, Kanye is rapping at the legendary Fat Beats Records and he was going for broke. You can actually see the passion and hunger in his eyes. He looks just like most other emerging artists.
It’s interesting to see the difference between Lil Ye who’s rapping about the Chi and his friends etc and grown up Yeezus who is rapping about being…well…Yeezus!
Take a look!
Let this be a lesson to you artists out there on the grind who think it can’t happen. He looks just like you in this video. And word in the streets is…he ended up doing pretty well for himself! So keep the faith and follow your dream if it’s what you really want! Because we’re pretty sure that his confidence helped him emerge from the kid in the video with a dream to the guy that we all know today. You probably couldn’t “tell him nothin”!
