Today marks the 10-year anniversary of the release of Kanye West’s debut album The College Dropout.

Yes, you read that right. It has been an entire decade since the show-stopping rapper first hit mainstream airways and acclaim with songs like “Jesus Walks” and “The New Workout Plan.”

Who would have thought that with the release of this album, Kanye would begin his domination as one of the best in the hip-hop industry? Who would have thought that the young Chicago native would team up with Brooklyn star, Jay Z, to deliver one of the most powerful music duos ever seen in the game?

Who would have thought Kimye would happen? The music world has definitely hit interesting times, and this artist sure has played his part.

What was your favorite song from the album?
