Kanye West was born in Atlanta, Georgia. His parents were divorced, so he was back and forth between homes often. He came form a relatively normal life
West started as a producer behind the scenes for some of the best known artists, such as Beyonce and Jay-Z. He wanted to become a rapper himself, but was told by many labels that he hadn't endured the struggles that a true rapper had (growing up on the streets, struggles, etc)
West created his own album in 2004, which was a massive hit. He was nominated for 10 grammy's, so at this point everyone knew his name. After Hurricane Katrina, West had his first scandal when he called out President George Bush for "not caring about black people."
He would later go on to storm out of award shows for not winning, get drunk and rant on video, and jump on stage to tell people why they didn't deserve an award.
N is for narcissist. Kanye West, despite being talented in numerous fields, is a raging narcissist. He thinks he is the best of the best, and that his opinion is sacred.
