2 on the Billboard 200, helping propel West into a star. The rapper, 36, took to Twitter to reflect on the album and how it changed his life and career. He started out as a record producer for artists like Jay Z. Ten years ago today we finally released what had been my lifes work up to that point: The College Dropout, he wrote. I say finally because it was a long road, a constant struggle, and a true labor of love to not only convince my peers and the public that I could be an artist, but to actually get that art out for the world to hear.

He was considerate enough to include God as a featured guest on the track. He has a different outlook on life, said Al Payne, 92Q’s program director, last week.
