2. The College Dropout (2004)
The combination of raw confidence and gusto combined with Kanye’s next level production on this project is what makes this album so perfect. This was Kanye’s very first studio album yet he came onto the scene like he’s been running the rap game for years. I also greatly enjoyed the narration on this album which made it feel like it had a specific direction and purpose. His sampling of other artists and songs mixed incredibly well with his rapping and overall made this a very enjoyable project.
