Today marks the ten-year anniversary of the release of The College Droupout, the debut album from Kanye West that would be a precursor to a decade of dominance from the Chicago rapper. Yes, his name was known prior thanks to the stray mixtapes and production credits, but it was Dropout that introduced Kanye the character; the multifaceted music man who was equal parts brilliant and boisterous.

After revealing on a Philadelphia radio show that he had signed a deal with a major brand, the rumors immediately began to swirl that West would be leaving the Swoosh for the Three Stripes.
