A demo tape of early Kanye West material has found its way onto the internet.
Originally distributed by West around 2001, it features early versions of tracks from his debut album College Dropout like ‘All Falls Down’, ‘Jesus Walks’ and ‘Bring Me Down’, capturing West when he was still more Walter White than Heisenberg (joke shamelessly stolen from Noz’s Twitter a few months back). You can download it here, and check out Kanye’s remix of recent G.O.O.D. Music signing, Nigerian vocalist D’Banj, over here. The below tracklist comes courtesy of the uploader.
In other Kanye news, his next single is due soon, and reportedly titled ‘I Am A God’.
