Kanye Omari West or better known as Kanye West is the only child of the couple Ray West and Donda West. He was born on June 7, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. When Kanye was 3 years old, his parents decided to divorce so Kanye’s mother moved to Chicago to raise the only child. Living in Chicago makes Kanye more familiar with art, especially singing. The mother, Onda West, remembers that Kanye wrote poetry when she was 5 years old. Not only that, he’s even started singing rap while sitting in third grade elementary school and writing songs in grade 7.
Kanye’s more serious decision in the music world is bad for education. He decided to quit college from Chicago State University, where his mother became one of the English professors of literature. College is a ticket for a better life. However, Kanye insists that success does not have to go through college. It did not take long for Kanye to prove the promise to Mom. He managed to work with famous Hollywood artist even early in his career (1999). Several names who had worked with Kanye West throughout 1999-2000, among others; Trina & Tamara, Harlem World, The Madd Rapper and Lil ‘Kim.
