Common, Be

Though Common undoubtedly influenced Kanye West with his early work, The College Dropout helped Com, as well. Not only did his verse on "Get Em High" warm listeners after the tepidly received 2002 album Electric Circus, but Yeezy went on to produce Be — considered by many to be the Chicago vet's best album.
