1000 albums you need to listen to before you die

Kanye West - College Dropout
Kanye began recording the album in 1999 and took 4 years to complete. It was finally released in 2004 and debuted at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Through the Wire was recorded 2 weeks after he was in a near fatal car accident and broke his jaw. If you listen closely, you’ll be able to hear that he still had his jaw wire on while rapping. <br /> <br />Jay’s pick: Family Business <br />JJ’s pick: Through the Wire
