Published Feb 10, 2014In the past, Kanye West has used his Twitter account to rant about Jimmy Kimmel and lay out future projects, but today (February 10), Yeezy celebrated the 10th anniversary of his landmark 2004 album The College Dropout by thanking his collaborators and reminiscing about his career so far.
Kanye wrote, "Ten years ago today we finally released what had been my life's work up to that point: The College Dropout." He added, "I say 'finally' because it was a long road, a constant struggle, and a true labor of love... to not only convince my peers and the public that I could be an artist, but to actually get that art out for the world to hear."
While Kanye is known for boasting of his own genius, this latest Twitter spree found him in a relatively modest mood, as he said, "I am extremely grateful to each and every person along that road who helped, lent an ear, lent their voice." He also thanked the fans, saying "I wake up every day trying to give something back to you that you can rock to and be proud of."
He wrapped things up by writing, "Ten years later I am still the same kid from Chicago, still dreaming out loud, still banging on the door... The doors may be heavier, but I promise you WE WILL BREAK THEM."
These comments come hot on the heels of news that Yeezy's Red October shoes are sold out and are being offered on eBay for millions of dollars.
