Damn. I remember my friend in '04 telling me about his brother getting into this rapper named Kanye West who was like no one else but thought he was the greatest human being on earth. Time flies. I've been revisiting this album a lot lately. Slow Jamz might still be one of my favorite Kanye songs.

Through the Wire coming on MTV every morning before school. Dope. Remember taking my cousin's copy of the album and playing it down my basement while I played pool. Had to turn it off when my parents walked in because he cursed

Was given a burned copy of this when it first came out and literally listened to it until it started peeling right off the disc. Amazing album. Great memories.

I remember hearing Jesus Walks and Slow Jamz in my cousin's car. I had never heard of Kanye. He told me this guy did the beat to Izzo and some other good stuff. I went and pick up the CD and I have been a big fan ever since. I will bump this album today.

I'll never forget the first time I heard all the kids singing "drug dealing just to get by" on a cd my sister just bought. Good shit.

I remember seeing the video for Through The Wire on MTV and knowing that I had to have this record. Ten years later, Kanye remains one of my favorite artists. I'll be spinning this all day.

I remember being 12 years old watching MTV and All Falls Down came on for the first time and I was just caught immediately. That simple acoustic guitar and voice combined with semi-conscious rap lyrics from some dude whose name I wasn't sure how to say. I remember coming home from the school the next couple weeks and immediate turning on MTV in hopes to see that video again. This was before I knew how to find music on the internet...I had no idea this artist would become who he is today and have such an impact on music. Say what you want about Kanye's antics, beliefs, overall pompous attitude-he almost always backs it up with his music and has create a place for rap music to evolve and not be afraid to test those boundaries that have been put in place. You can badmouth his music and him personally and all of the above and more, but you can't deny his passion and ultimately that is the most admirable thing you can find in a musician and that's what makes Kanye an inspiration for me
