Kanye West was born on the 8th of June, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. West had a passion for making music at a very early age, when he was writing songs and rapping before he had even hit his teenage years. He started studying art at the Chicago State University but dropped out to pursue his career in the music industry.

Kanye West got his start in the music industry as a music producer. He produced hit songs for some of the biggest R&B and rappers in the industry, including Jay Z's Blueprint album, Ludacris, and Alicia Keys.

Although West enjoyed producing the records of others, he was determined to release his own album. Record companies were reluctant to sign Kanye West as he was not the usual street wise, cursing, posturing rap artist. He signed to Roc-a-Fella Records and released his first album "The College Dropout" in 2004. His debut album won the "Best Rap Album" and "Best Rap Song" (with Jesus Walks) at the Grammy Awards.

Kanye West has strong political views and criticized George W Bush and the American government. He has stated his views on the way black Africans are treated and discrimination in general. He was also very critical of George Bush's reaction (or lack of it) to the Hurricane Katrina disaster in the predominantly black region of Louisiana. In a live televised appeal, Kanye West stated that "George Bush doesn't care about Black people", which was later mixed into a song.
