Kanye became famous after the release of his 2004 album The College Dropout. He is now one of the world’s most successful and award-winning musicians, having received 21 Grammy nominations and winning 21 of them. He has shifted his focus from music to business in recent years. West’s Yeezy/Adidas collaboration has made him a substantial fortune.
Kanye Omari West was born in Atlanta, Georgia on June 8, 1977. West moved to Chicago, Illinois, with his mother after his parents divorced when he was three years old. After meeting producer/DJ No I.D., who mentored him, he began experimenting with music there. In 1997, he was awarded a scholarship to the American Academy of Art, but he transferred to Chicago State University to study English. He eventually dropped out of school at the age of 20 to pursue a music career.
West began making beats for local artists after dropping out of college to hone his style. In 1996, he received his first official production credit for Chicago rapper Grave’s debut album, Down to Earth. During this time, he also worked with Foxy Brown, Deric “D-Dot” Angelettie, and Harlem World.
West’s big break came in 2000 when he began working as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records, where he worked with artists such as Ludacris, Alicia Keys, and Janet Jackson. His work on Jay-2001 Z’s album The Blueprint sparked significant interest in West’s abilities as a producer. His production credits from this time include Jay-Z, Beyoncé, John Legend, Alicia Keys, and Janet Jackson, among others.
Despite his success as a producer, West’s primary ambition was to become a rapper. After being denied a contract with Capitol Records, he persuaded the head of Capitol Records to sign him to Roc-A-Fella Records in 2001.
West was inspired after a serious car accident in October 2002, in which he shattered his jaw, and recorded the song Through the Wire with his jaw still wired shut. This song laid the groundwork for his debut album The College Dropout, which was leaked months before its August 2003 release date. West used the time to remix, remaster, and edit the album, delaying its release three times. The College Dropout was eventually released to widespread critical acclaim in February 2004, earning him ten Grammy Awards nominations, and eventually certified triple platinum in the US.
West invested two million dollars in the production of his second album, even hiring a live string orchestra. Late Registration was released in August 2005, and by the end of the year, it had sold over 2.3 million units in the United States. Graduation (2007), 808s & Heartbreak (2008), My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010), Watch the Throne (2011), Yeezus (2013), The Life of Pablo (2016), Ye (2018), and Jesus is King (2018) are among his subsequent albums (2019).
In 2013, West released the album Yeezus. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, as well as the US R&B and Rap charts, as well as in four other countries. His 2016 album The Life of Pablo debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and #2 on the US Rap and US R&B charts. West’s single “FourFiveSeconds” (featuring Rihanna and Paul McCartney) debuted at number one on the US R&B chart. He was nominated for six Grammy Awards in 2017. Ye, his next album, was released in June of 2018. Unfortunately, Ye was Kanye’s first album that did not go platinum.
West has continued to work as a producer and featured artist for other musicians, including 6ix9ine, XXXTentacion, Lil Pump, Chance the Rapper, Kid Cudi, and Teyana Taylor, in addition to his albums and releases.
