Hear A 12-Year-Old Kanye West Spit A Few Bars

He had a knack for this thing at a young age.

Published February 29, 2016

We’ve heard what Kanye West sounds like rapping prior to releasing his debut album College Dropout, but maybe nothing is this vintage.

A video of Yeezy rapping from 1990 recently surfaced online and yeah, it seems he had a knack for this hip hop thing at a young age. Climaxing with the line, “Nothing less could come from West,” the quick capture of him spitting off the dome among friends relays that he had confidence in his ability pretty much since the beginning.

‘Ye recently announced that he has a new album coming out this summer and even posted its title (eventhough it’s probably been changed already). Hopefully more of these clips surface so we can understand the man that is Kanye even better.

When they say they “miss the old Kanye” is this what they’re talking about? Watch Kanye West’s freestyle from May 1990 below.
