Kanye West dropped out of college to pursue his music career when he was 20, but he didn’t go straight for stardom. Instead, he started out making beats for local artists in Chicago, where he lived with his mother. He did release one album with local group the Go-Getters, but returned to producing soon after. During the late 90’s and early 2000’s he racked up producing credits on songs for Foxy Brown, Nas, Janet Jackson, and most notably for Jay-Z‘s album The Blueprint.

Although record companies were reluctant to sign him as a rapper, he finally signed an artist deal with Roc-A-Fella in 2002. His debut album The College Dropout was released in 2004 and has sold 4 million copies worldwide. West has now won a total of 21 Grammy’s and is considered one of the most influential artists of all time.
