11-Year Old Kanye West Interview Surfaces On The Internet

Since exploding onto the national scene in 2004, Kanye West has consistently given some of the hottest and most thought-provoking interviews in the business. It seems as if that was true before he was famous, too.

In 2002, a pre-fame Yeezy was interviewed by MTV News that unfortunately went unreleased by the media monolith. Flash-forward, 11 years and the interview has finally surfaced on the internet, today.

In an hour-long interview made as Kanye was becoming a rising star in the rap production world, Kanye talks about his love of hip-hop, the first time he played his music for Jay Z, Mos Def and Talib Kweli and how he came to link up with Roc-A-Fella. In a taste of future interviews to come, Kanye even took the time to vent about his creative frustrations that he was facing at the same time. : “In my heart, there’s so much stuff I want to say the world.”
