Kanye Review – College Dropout

The College Dropout album.

The College Dropout album.

Everyone’s heard about him, everyone’s listened to at least one of his songs, whether it’s Stronger, Off the Grid, or Heartless, Kanye is one of the greatest artists of all time. OF All TIME! From his first trilogy of albums describing his entrance into the rap game, to what many regard to be his magnum opus My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, to his experimental albums Yeezus and 808’s & Heartbreak, his discography is unlike anything you’ve heard before. So let’s travel down the rabbit hole of Kanye “Ye” West’s discography. (Good Winter Cruel Summer will be excluded from this list).


The College Dropout begins with one of his most iconic songs, We Don’t Care, using a children’s choir for some amazing hooks and background vocals. It’s overrated, but it’s still a fun throwback song. After a skit, some of his best songs follow, including All Falls Down (feat. Syleena Johnson) and Jesus Walks

Slow Jamz and Through the Wire are also thought of as some of his greatest hits, as on Through the Wire, Kanye describes his car crash in 2003 that almost took his life. His debut album ends with Last Call, describing his origin, and thanking those that helped Ye get to where he is now.

RATING: 8/10
