Kanye West Beat Tape 1997


"I miss the old Kanye, straight from the ‘Go Kanye… Well, some of his diehard fans got their wish today (May 23rd), as an enterprising type has liberated what appears to be one of Kanye West‘s very first beat tapes. Dated 1997, they sound exactly as one would expect beats in 1997 to sound: slightly jiggy and piano-heavy like the production of Puff Daddy’s The Hitmen team. Some of the beats were actually used too, for artists such as the Infamous Syndicate and Grav." - via 2DBZ
