14 Year Anniversary: Kanye West’s ‘The College Dropout’ / ‘Through The Wire’ (Audio/Video)

Love that college ‘dropout bear’. Album is aging well.



Kanye West’s ‘The College Dropout’ was a ground breaking album. It’s not normal of us to do a little post on a totally different genre, but a landmark album like this one, is always a cool thing to go back to.

Besides, it’s the 14th anniversary since we saw the successful sampling of Chaka Khan’s ‘Through The Fire’, and making a totally cool and different (at the time) kind of hip-hop offering.

Just like Kanye, the album doesn’t seem to age.


The album was originally produced and released by Roc-A-Fella Records (now part of Island/Def Jam).

Song included are:

  • We Don’t Care

  • Get Em High
  • The New Workout Plan
