Kanye West Before Kim Kardashian


Have you ever wondered what Kanye was like when he was 19 before he met Kim Kardashian? We’ll now you can find out. A video was just released today of Kanye West rapping in 1996 at the Fat Beats store. Before he met Kim we all know that Kanye was a world-class producer, but before that he was a wannabe rapper. Check out his mic skills below – no mention of Kim in this one. But here is what Kanye and Kim looked like when Kanye was making this rap. They would have been a great couple even then.



As you may or may not know Kanye West became famous when he produced Jay-Z in 2001, so a whole five years after this video was shot. The kid definitely had some talent – it’s clear to see why Kim likes him!
