"Through The Wire"
"Last October, Grammy-nominated producer KANYE WEST was in a nearly fatal car accident. His jaw was fractured in three places. Two weeks later, he recorded this song with his mouth still wired shut…so the world could feel his pain!"
Some of the world's greatest songs are birthed out of pain, and Yeezy's near-death experience led him to writing his first bust-out single as an MC: "Through The Wire." The soulful track was certified gold, setting the pace for College Dropout to do massive numbers.
