Video: Rare Kanye West Interview From 2002

Monday, November 4th, 2013

Incredible hour-long interview with MTV’s “You Heard It First” that has never seen the light of day until now, subjects ranging from everything from meeting No I.D. in Chicago, early Roc-A-Fella days and predictions for the future that were pretty much all accurate. I’m guessing this never aired because this is almost exactly the same thing as “Last Call” from College Dropout, but more detailed.

I also realized I had never heard the full story about how he met Mos Def and Kweli. The story about Jay-Z coming up with “H to the Izzo” and him running into the bathroom to call his mom is CLASSIC.
