It's been 12 years since the release of Kanye West's debut album 'The College Dropout' and in that decade he had become a staple of hip-hop, which can mainly be attributed to these 18 career defining moments of his.
Yeezy almost caused a riot.
Kanye West’s impromptu gig in the streets of New York City was cancelled over the weekend due to scenes of chaos among fans.
Yeezy’s initial scheduled performance at Governers Ball festival was cancelled due to bad weather, stopping him from performing his headline set.
However, the rapper then decided to organise a last-minute 2AM show at Webster Hall to make up for the cancellation.
Thousands of fans flooded the streets to get into the intimate venue, before Kanye later tweeted the show was sold out – despite not selling any tickets.
There was then chaos in the streets, with Kanye being turned away from the venue by police.
