No ‘Get ’Em High’?
Earlier this week, Kanye West revealed the tracklist for his upcoming LP Swish, “the greatest album of all time.” With its release date only a few weeks away on February 11, it would be safe to assume that this is truly the final lineup.
But long before “Kylie was here,” there was The College Dropout. Last night, Queens rapper and previous Kanye collaborator Consequence shared the original tracklist for Ye’s debut on Instagram. Aside from revealing that West used to have slightly better — or at least less urgent — handwriting, it also shows the original plan would have omitted tracks like ‘Get ’Em High’ and the 10+ minute, mini-making-of ‘Last Call’ and would have included Late Registration cut ‘Hey Mama’.
Check out the rest below.
Some things never change… The ritual continues… This is the First First handwritten Tracklisting of "The College Dropout" by Kanye from around I think 03' "18 Years" would later go on to become "Gold Digger" and "Good,Bad,Ugly" was swapped for "Spaceship" and later used on #DayJob #HistoricalDocument📜#CollectorsItem 💎💎💎 #BuriedTreasure👑👑👑 @companyofgreatness 2016 #AGoodComebackStoryEP
