Description: The College Dropout is the debut album of American hip hop artist Kanye West, released February 10, 2004 on Roc-A-Fella Records.

Produced entirely by West, The College Dropout features musical contributions from Jay-Z, John Legend, Ervin "EP" Pope, Miri Ben-Ari, Syleena Johnson, and Ken Lewis. Discarding the then-dominant gangster persona in hip hop, West's lyrics on the album concern themes of family, r ... (more)

Qu(w)est to Be the Best: Ranking Kanye West's Five (5 music items)

"This was the freshest rap album in years upon its release. It still is to this day and remains on the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. Kanye's lyrics were deep and fresh in comparison to other rap artists. While the skits got old in Late Registration, they helped hold this album together. It was an epic debut album. Best Track: Spaceship (Fabulous Lyrics on a chill track)"

TIME's 100 Greatest Albums (100 music items)

"“Even with extended skits and lots of filler, West's debut stands as the smartest, funniest and most important rap album of the new century. The pink Polo-wearing son of an ex-Black Panther and a college English professor, West wasn't the first to bring a buppie sensibility to hip hop, but he infused "Jesus Walks," "All falls Down" and "Never Let Me Down" (which featured a tremendous guest verse from his mentor and record company president, Jay-Z) with wit, intelligence and most of all, comple"
