Kanye West Looks Back On 10th Anniversary Of ‘college Dropout’

He thanked the people who had a hand in his early work. I am extremely grateful to each and every person along that road who helped, lent an ear, lent their voice, gave of their heart to that project, and to all the projects that followed, and are to come.
