Kanye West Music Videos
Before the tabloid headlines and the award show antics, Kanye West was an art school dropout who wanted to rap. Not taken seriously as a performer, <a class="" target="" href="http://www.kanyewest.com">West</a> silently worked on his 2004 breakout hit, "All Falls Down," while producing songs for Jay Z. The Grammy-nominated track was off his hugely popular debut record, "The College Dropout." Billboard <a class="" target="" href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/review/5901147/kanye-wests-the-college-dropout-at-10-classic-track-by-track-review">called</a> it a "paradigm-shifting solo LP which would come to influence almost every bit of hip-hop that came after it." The 2004 music <a class="" target="" href="https://screen.yahoo.com/kanye-west-music-videos/falls-down-004651737.html">video</a> is a surprisingly lighthearted take on the rapper, who turns 37 on June 8. The video is shot from his viewpoint as he and his girlfriend, played by "Clueless" star Stacey Dash, arrive at a California airport to catch a flight with piles of Louis Vuitton luggage and stacks of cash. "We all self-conscious, I'm just the first to admit it," he raps as he follows his girlfriend through the gate. Alas, he can't catch a break: His shirt gets covered in mustard, and then he's stopped at security. After several attempts, he finally puts himself inside the X-ray machine. "It seems we living the American dream," West raps. "The people highest up got the lowest self-esteem, the prettiest people do the ugliest things, for the road to riches and diamond rings." West <a class="" target="" href="http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/16/arts/music/kanye-west-talks-about-his-career-and-album-yeezus.html?pagewanted=all">recalled</a> to the New York Times that when he realized how to make "raps with a message sound cool ... I was able to just write 'All Falls Down' in 15 minutes." Those 15 minutes propelled him to fame. The rapper's Grammy-winning album has sold more than 3 million copies to date. Not bad for a college dropout. — Claudine Zap (@zapkidd)
