It’s February 10, which means we’re exactly a day away from Kanye West’s new album,T.L.O.P. (whatever that means). But today also marks the 12th anniversary of The College Dropout, so what better excuse to take a little trip down memorYe lane.
Armani Ortiz and Dan Buyanovsky put together this 16-minute “dissertation” on the cultural phenomenon known as Kanye West. Featuring interviews with respected writers like Noah Callahan-Bever, Jon Caramanica and Erika Ramirez, the mini documentary explores the good, the bad and the ugly of Yeezy, from breaking out as a prodigious producer to continuously changing not only the rap game, but pop culture as a whole.
Warm yourself up for that new Kanye album and watch the documentary below.
