The College Dropout - Kanye West. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. The College Dropout is the debut studio album by American rapper and producer Kanye West. It was released on February 10, 2004, by Def Jam Recordings and Roc-A-Fella Records. In the years leading up to release, West had received praise for his production work for rappers such as Jay-Z and Talib Kweli, but faced difficulty being accepted as an artist in his own right by figures in the music industry. Intent on pursuing a solo career, he signed a record deal with Roc-A-Fella and recorded the album over. The College Dropout. Kanye West. Released February 10, 2004. The College Dropout Tracklist. Intro Lyrics. For Kanye to make an album called College Dropout, it was more about having the guts to embrace who you are, rather than following the path society has carved out for you. The inspiration for finally making his own music came when he was involved in a near-fatal car crash. With his jaw wired shut, he recorded the albums lead single, Through the Wire, which was released on September 30, 2003. On December 2, 2003, Kanye released the albums second single, Slow Jamz. The College Dropout Q&A. How did this album chart . Kanye Wests The College Dropout was one of the most astonishing debut albums in hip-hop history. Multi-faceted, idiosyncratic and packed with enough pop nous to conquer the charts, it brought him both critical acclaim and huge commercial success. Success certainly didnt happen overnight, though. Snapped up by Jay Z as an up-and-coming producer, Wests groundbreaking work on the rappers classic 2001 album, The Blueprint, was followed by a frustrating few years as he sought to gain acceptance as an artist in his own right. The mix of styles and subject matter is breathtaking. Pop hits rub up against vulnerable moments. Street anthems mingle with wild humor. And Jesus Walks challenges beliefs like no other rap song before it. Kanye West attacks the set with confidence and conviction. The week The College Dropout came out, three singles featuring his handiwork were in the Top 20, including his own Through the Wire. A daring way to introduce himself to the masses as an MC, the enterprising West recorded the song during his recovery from a car wreck that nearly took his life - while his jaw was wired shut. Kanye's first studio album, The College Dropout, continues to resonate in pop culture 10 years after its release, not only because of Kanye West but all of those who were a part of the creation. Everyone who contributed was an underdog as well, trying to prove themselves to their hometown, label executives, peers, and most importantly, themselves.

The College Dropout abbreviated to TCD is the debut studio album by American rapper, singer and producer Kanye West.

Comments to album Kanye West - The College Dropout
Nidora
There's a "Promo Not For Sale" Sticker over the barcode... Anyone else? Plays through great, excellent mastering, no skips. Classic record, the beats, the punchlines, and ad-libs are unreal. "Mayonnaise colored Benz, I push miracle whips."
Juce
A great album, but the quality of my pressing is pretty bad. For the price it goes for, they did a shitty job. Thin vinyl, pops and cracks. Bought it brand new. And now it even skips in the first song!
Tygrafym
Special shoutout to the asshole who spent $99 on a VG+ copy to justify all these other assholes charging way more for these than they ever would have in the past
Camper
This is by far the best pressing I've gotten from Kanye. I have 808 and Heartbreak and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and those have wild sibilance sometimes and generally have a mastering I like less than this release. The packaging is way less collectible and cool than those two, but it did come with nice sleeves. I might display the others, but spin this more.
Adaly
I'm so glad I own this, despite how frustrating it was upon discovery.
Unereel
Theirs a big fucking production failure in the record. Bad
Felhalar
this is an advance promo for radio DJs; i'm not sure exactly what you were expecting...
VariesWent
No skits, and I feel like the mastering is all over the place. Sounds flat and lifeless.
Wilalmaine
This album sounds amazing on vinyl. Don't regret this purchase
Arashitilar
Does this press cut the skits/have the purported quality issues of the US version?
Alsantrius
Just got a copy of this and yes it has the skits and overall the pressing sounds great.
Cae
i don't own an EU copy, so i can't say for sure, but the skits aren't in the above tracklist, and the album wouldn't fit on vinyl without making the pressing sound like shit if they did--so i'm going to say no to your first question.as for quality, the US pressing is hit or miss. there are misprints and bootlegs, but there are also plenty of good copies.
Legionstatic
Was leery to purchase being that I'd read on multiple sites that it skipped and was of poor quality. However, my copy sounds great straight through. No skipping at all. So there are obviously some good copies.
Abuseyourdna
Just got a new sealed copy of this and disc 1 both sides are exactly the same Pretty weak!!
Yar
I must have gotten the other one because I got 2 of disc 2!!! Yeah it does suck!!!
fightnight
Mine is exactly the same! Unbelievable. How did you resolve this?
Jay
My favorite Kanye album, I think his music went downhill from here, excluding a few tracks here and there.
tamada
Is it true that the LP version of this album completely gets rid of all the skits in between the tracks?
Kerry
Yes, that's true. While at first, that may sound like a good idea, as the skits are considered the weakest part of The College Dropout, it's actually a very jarring experience. Only after listening to the vinyl version did I come to appreciate the skits!For example, "Intro" is missing, but "Graduation Day" is included, since it is half-skit, half-song. But there's a storyline in "Intro" that concludes in "Graduation Day," so it's very confusing on the vinyl version. Also, for some reason, "I'll Fly Away" is not included, and that's not a skit. Having the "School Spirit" and "Lil Jimmy" skits absent takes some of the punch out of "School Spirit."Other problems with the vinyl version are: "Through The Wire" has been moved to earlier in the running order, and the bass is mastered so poorly that the album skips on a lot of turntables -- especially side one. If you have a turntable with tonearm weight and anti-skating, you can get a skip-free experience, but a lot of sub-$500 turntables don't do well with it.Hopefully, someday there will be a properly mastered, gatefold-cover reissue of The College Dropout with ALL tracks included!
Falya
yeah, it's true. that and the fact that the pressing is kinda poor
Dusar
I just play my brandnew copy right now. No skips, no clicks and fantastic sound! i don't understand all the complaints. Maybe this is a different pressing? Is it possible that there is a Re-Issue?
Jesmi
same, I just bought my copy a few days ago and it's immaculate
PC-rider
Just spun my newish copy... no skips, timing issues, or anything else folks complained about on here. Real bummer for all of you, luckily mine is solid as hell. I just wish KW would repress Graduation, Twisted, and Yeezus... let alone press Pablo now.
Thetalune
(Quick Review #12)Listen: #2This was the first time I've heard college Dropout in a long time, and I enjoyed it. I don't think its as good as the other two school-themed albums, but it is still very enjoyable in my opinion. I really like most of the songs here, and while it definantly isn't Kanye's best work, its worth a few listens. I also must state that I listened to this on the shitty Vinyl pressing, so I may have enjoyed it more if I didn't listen to it on it. But it was still enjoyable, just not as good as some of his other stuff. I sound like I'm shitting on it but I still think this is a great albumDecent 8
Nikojas
Before I review the album I must review the vinyl.Damn its bad. I mean I should have known concidering everyone shits on the vinyl pressing of this one. But I didn't think it would be THIS bad. It has a mix of the explicit and clean versions of the songs, the sound quality is ass and the record even at full volume sounds near silent. It's not nice. However unlike a lot of other people, my copy never skipped, but I would rather it have skipped a few times than have some of the clean versions of these songs.
I_LOVE_228
which songs are clean and which are explicit? . .
Vetitc
Kanye's music has a reputation for being poorly pressed on vinyl. The only one that seems to be worth looking into is the recent 808s repress. The 2029 reissue of his catalog should be lit, though ;)
Whitescar
He'll be into his third term by then! Executive order for new Yeezy pressings.
Halloween
My copy doesn't skip at all.
Fountain_tenderness
who has this? hmu!
Hirah
i received an offer for $120 a week ago. the guy is waiting for pay day so i am still taking offer
Modred
Haven't noticed any skips or problems whatsoever with my copy.
Manemanu
Brand new copy: plays absolutely perfectly on my setup. It was heinously filthy when i first got it out of the packaging though. Took a good wet cleaning to get all the dust off the surface before playing.The skipping potential on disc B is definitely there as the pressing is off-center, but if your cartridge tracks well it should be alright.
Ballagar
Does anyone know if the VINYL version with the white cover 1.) contains the skits and 2.) sounds any better?I read that the white CD cover was for after it was remastered, but am wondering if this applies to the record as well.
Kardana
Skips real bad all over Disc A
Vobei
Skips bad on side 1. Love this album too. Super diappointed. Anyone trying to get rid of a good copy let me know.
Cyregaehus
I only noticed skips on We Don't Care and Family Business. Otherwise the record sounded fine.
Yozshubei
skips on almost every song, bad decision buying it
Gom
This copy sounds really great, for me. No skips and sounds great!
Nothing personal
if anyone is selling just the sleeve, let me know please
Blackredeemer
ha ha ha, brilliant. So it's THAT bad ?
Jan
my brand new copy skips pretty bad on side 4. Pretty terrible pressing I happened to get, disappointed would be an understatement
Malann
Doesn't sound that great ...
Arar
How's this sound? I've heard all his other vinyl release sound like shit, but I haven't heard anything about this one
Landaron
808s sounds great and is getting a reissue soonMBDTF isn't as bad as people make it out to beLate Registration sounds terrible, so much sibilanceand I'm not sure about this, but based on a rip I heard it's okay.It always really depends on your set up.It doesn't cost much and if it doesn't end up sounding good enough for listening then you have it for collections sake.
Black_Hawk_Down.
i hate that they got rid of the skits. they're essential to the album imo
Kadar
I get the feeling the reason they decided to omit the skits was that vinyl is often the medium of choice for DJ's, who don't necessarily want to deal with navigating around the skits on the record. I like it because it's sort of an alternate "listening experience" with a greater emphasis on the music.
Eseve
weird that the tracklist is different from the cd. I understand getting rid of the skits but they changed track order too.
Rleyistr
This might be a stupid question, but what does radio version actually mean?
Maveri
Radio versions are the clean versions of the album with no cussing.
Rarranere
In the meantime i've become quite certain that it's a clean version without the cursing etc.
Agrainel
Cean, or just titled that for DJs to play it on the radio
Uscavel
The College Dropout also known as Kanye West, has arrived on the rap scene as a producer/rapper under the Roc-A-Fella camp. Although he was denied by others that he couldn't rap, Kanye decided to prove them wrong with his debut album, The College Dropout. With his debut album, Kanye produces the whole album using his unique sped-up samples delivering a bunch of hits like, "Jesus Walks" and "Through The Wire" to name a few. He raps about his past experiences in his life while also offering alot of humor in his lyrics. Kanye took the world by storm with his debut album, this drew controversy and at the same time, fame. He later would become the go-to guy for hits after earning his credit from his latest masterpiece. With his classic album on his shoulders and the bright lights shining down on him, Kanye had finally proved all those that they were all wrong.
