Video: Kanye West In His New Jersey Home/Studio Circa 2002 (Unreleased)

Here we have some super exclusive footage of Kanye West in his New Jersey home studio in early 2002, working on music for himself as well as Rhymefest’s demo. This was from a vintage episode of Channel Zero, the Chicago Hip-Hop show that Coodie (now with Creative Control) operated with Tittyhead Ted and Danny Sorge back in the late ’90s/early ’00s (you can read more on Channel Zero here), that has been highly requested on the site for a very long time.

In this two part clip , you can hear a very, very early version of “Jesus Walks” – the one that originally featured Rhymfest – and a handful of unreleased ‘Ye and ‘Fest records. Later on, Kanye even performs “Livin’ A Movie” incorporating various titles from his DVD collection. Hardcore ‘Ye fans know that one.

Props to Fake Shore Drive

Me and my mother drove to Newark, New Jersey. I hadn’t even seen my apartment. I remember I pulled up, I unpacked all my shit. You know, we went to Ikea, I bought a bed, I put the bed together myself. I loaded up all my equipment, and the first beat I made was, uh, ‘Heart of the City.’
