I miss the old Kanye.
During Kanye West's recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, he explained to the late night talk show host how he managed to prosper throughout his career despite everyone doubting him. He said that when he decided to make the leap into music from art school, many people said it wouldn't worked out. After he established himself as a producer, he wanted to become a rapper which people also doubted. While he seems a bit more focused on fashion these days, Andrew Barber of FakeShoreDrive dug into the vault and unleashed a never-before-seen freestyle from the old Kanye.
Barber blessed the Twitter timeline last night after he shared a clip of Kanye West freestyling back in the day. Barber shared the exact time stamp and location of when the freestyle was done. The clip was shot in Kanye West's home studio on 95th and Longwood in the Beverly area of Chicago on September 22nd, 2000 at 10:45 p.m.
"I'll murder these n**gas on that lyrical shit/ Mayonnaise colored Benz, I push Miracle Whips/ I copped a new set of rims, nubuck Timmies/ I wear a size 12, my car wear 20s/Momma, why they won't just let me live my life? Let me rock my ice?/Just admit that I spit that nice/When I drop that flow, fuckin' with Kanye to the is Mission Impossible," he freestyles.
