Kanye West – A celebrated American producer, rapper, and fashion designer, born on June 8, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia, began his music career in the late 1990s and early 2000s, first gaining recognition as a producer. Raised in Chicago by his photographer father, formerly associated with the Black Panther movement, and his mother, a college professor, he briefly studied at Chicago State University before fully dedicating himself to music.

His early work as a producer is marked by his contributions to Jermaine Dupri’s 1998 album “Life in 1472”. He then relocated to the New York City area and rose to prominence with his production work for Roc-A-Fella Records, especially on Jay-Z’s 2001 album “Blueprint”. Known for his unique style of accelerated sample-based beats, he became a highly sought-after producer. Despite early successes, he encountered obstacles in starting his rap career, largely due to misconceptions about his middle-class upbringing.

His determination culminated in the release of his debut solo album, “The College Dropout,” in 2004. This album received critical acclaim and commercial success, noted for its innovative sound and thoughtful lyrics that wove together humor, faith, insight, and political commentary. It featured significant tracks like “Through the Wire” and “Jesus Walks,” with the latter winning the Best Rap Song Grammy Award in 2005. In the same year, he was honored with the Best Rap Album award and recognized as a songwriter for Alicia Keys’s “You Don’t Know My Name,” which won the Best Rhythm-and-Blues Song.
