Kanye West has been at the center of a lot of controversy lately. Ye’s divorce from Kim Kardashian and the subsequent fallout involving Pete Davidson and other celebrities has been well-documented. For all of his questionable behavior, Kanye is still seen by many as a genius of hip-hop.
Consequence announced yesterday on Twitter that he uncovered a notable piece of Kanye West’s musical history. The Queens rapper shared a photo of a handwritten track list for Kanye’s landmark 2005 album, ‘Late Registrati0n.’ The list also had a hint at what was to come with a drawing of the infamous bear from the album’s artwork.
“Look what I found today. The handwritten tracklisting for ‘Late Registration.’ Peep the ‘Dropout’ bear at the top. So I have both ‘The College Dropout’ + ‘Late Registration’ tracklisting as collector’s items given to me by Kanye West. Amazing.”
The track list has some interesting historical footnotes. “Crack Music,” featuring The Game, was originally meant for Diddy rather than Ye, according to Consequence. Diddy eventually said the song fit Kanye West’s album better than his, so there were no hard feelings.
Kanye signed Consequence to G.O.O.D. Music in 2004. His debut album dropped in 2007. He has since gone on to win multiple Grammy Awards. In addition to his trophy case, Consequence also has an amazing bit of Kanye West history in his possession.
