"Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Yes, you really are that old. It’s been 10 years since Kanye West’s debut album landed, ‘The College Dropout’, and the rapper has taken to his twitter account after many fans played tribute to the landmark date. Writing that at the time he was just working to make his dreams come true, Kanye even says he has been “humbled” by fans and continues to work on music that will make just as big an impact:

 ”I am honored and humbled by my fans, for the unwavering support and love over the past ten years. I wake up every day trying to give somethingback to you that you can rock to and be proud of. Ten years later I am still the same kid from Chicago, still dreaming out loud, still banging on the door. The doors may be heavier, but I promise you WE WILL BREAK THEM. (sic)”

Kanye wrote that the experience was a long one and he spent a lot of time perfecting his debut record before it was released. He thanks those who helped him on his path to success:

”Ten years ago today we finally released what had been my life’s work up to that point: TheCollege Dropout. I say ”finally” because it was a long road, a constant struggle, and a true labor of love to not only convince my peers and the public that I could be an artist, but to actually get that art out for the world to hear. I am extremely grateful to each and every person along that road who helped, lent an ear, lent their voice, gave of their heart to that project, and to all the projects that followed, and are to come.
