Sup Travellers?! Everyone starts somewhere and that "somewhere" for Kanye West was at the opening of Fat Beats record store in New York City in 1996 when he was only 19.

I must admit that he raps much better today than he did before but young Kanye West is a perfect example of how practice makes perfect. Despite West's incredibly large ego and sometimes offensive personality we can all respect his grind from 19 rapping in a record store to 21-time Grammy award winning rapper at age 37. Dreams do come true.

The video above, however, never got any airtime but recently, DJ Eclipse, manager of the iconic record store that closed in 2010 went through footage of the opening and happened to find Kanye's old verse. He shared it with Complex and they did as any magazine would do; share it with the world.

If you're an upcoming rapper I recommend that you learn a thing or two from Ye's grind. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
