The Evolution of Kanye West

Kanye went big on his sophomore album, the 2005 classic Late Registration. Working with acclaimed pop/rock producer Jon Brion, Kanye expanded past his chipmunk soul signature sound with lusher live instrumentation and epic bridges, crescendoes and breakdowns. Behind hits like "Gold Digger" and "Touch the Sky," the album was Kanye's first to hit No. 1.
