One of my favorite successful rap artists is none other than the man himself, the real Mr. Started from the Bottom -- Kanye West. Listening to his raw, unedited speech, I can find all of the confidence in the Kanye we all claim has changed to become someone we think we're unfamiliar with. But in all actuality, Kanye West has been officially Kanye West since before we knew who he was. For those of you who think you made Kanye West, you're dead wrong. Look into the eyes of this young star take this opportunity by the horns. He controls his position firmly and allows you to know who he is from his perspective. The true perspective. Being young and absolutely grinding by all means to get to where he's got to be. That's the Kanye today, yesterday, and so on. That's our Kanye West.
