Watch a newly-unearthed clip of Kanye West reciting a poem about Martin Luther King Jr. in middle school.


While he may not be the most vaunted lyricist of our time, Kanye West has always had a clear knack for performance and poetry. Whether delivering one of his now-famous "rants" or just rapping impassioned bars live, Mr. West is a natural born orator, and now we know that he may have always been that way. Last night, Kim Kardashiantweeted out a YouTube clip of a 12-year-old Kanye reciting a poem on Martin Luther King day.

Delivering the words with gusto, young Kanye is unmistakable in his confidence and forceful enunciation. This dude was destined for greatness from day one.
