As Kanye West's debut album 'The College Dropout' celebrates its tenth birthday this week we explore some little known facts about what is possibly his greatest album off all-time.
Kanye is the King of samples and always has been. Of the 21 tracks on his very first album, 14 samples were used on 12 songs. Most notably you'll recognise Luther Vandross' 'House Is Not A Home' on 'Slow Jamz,' Chaka Khan's 'Through The Fire' on 'Through The Wire' and Marvin Gaye's 'Distant Lover' on 'Spaceship.' But also featuring are Aretha Franklin, Tupac, Bette Midler and more.
