In 1996 I would have been a wee lad aged 7 worrying about missing an episode of Blue Peter or maybe even Top Of The Pops was probably the biggest issue I'd have to deal with. Kanye West though was a young, eager 19 year old wanting to make a name for himself and this footage dating back to 1996 shows him at the start of his path to world domination performing in Chicago. It's always nice to see things like this and with the amount of fans 'Ye has I'm sure this will entertain many. His style is pretty nice and not to dissimilar to his flow nowadays. (Via DDotOmen)
