Music| Watch a 19-Year-Old Kanye West Rap at Fat Beats

Here is a little #MondayMotivation for all aspiring rappers, musicians, actors, producers, or whatever it is you seek to become. Some old school footage of a 19-year-old Kanye West rapping at NYC’s Fat Beats record store was leaked recently. It’s easy to forget his origins as at the moment he might be more well known for his latest collection with A.P.C. than his rap beginnings, but this clip reminds us of his talents that brought him into the rap world. He steps up to the mic at the opening of New York City’s Fat Beats record store back in 1994 and gives a talent-filled performance in front of many rap names like Nas and delivers with a verse that includes a reference to Alanis Morrisette and a traditional Yeezy-style line, “It ain’t original because I stole it from the future.” ENJOY!
