kanye west a-trak

Long before he founded Fool’s Gold Records and was making EPs with Cam’ron and Lex Luger, A-Trak was Kanye West’s tour DJ. With The College Dropout‘s 10th anniversary fast approaching, A-Trak decided to let loose this vintage footage from the accompanying tour back in 2004. We get a peek at the “private jet lifestyle,” behind the scenes of “The New Workout Plan” video shoot and a fresh-faced Kanye and A-Trak going shopping. Common, John Legend, GLC, Consequence and Really Doe all feature in the clip, too.

Don’t miss out on Billboard’s excellent oral history of The College Dropout, featuring insight from 26 key players, including Dame Dash, No I.D., Talib Kweli and many more.
