ICYMI: Kanye West’s 1996 Flow At Fat Beats

Say what you will about the man Kanye is today but this video proves even at 19 the ‘Louis Vuitton Don’ had the skill to impress a crowd. Back in the day Fat Beats was the spot for hip-hop heads and DJs to pick up music and for rappers to showcase their flow. This video was dug up from 1996 when someone recorded a cypher at the opening of the 6th Ave store in NYC.  Even in a room full of lyricists Yeezy stands out.

Yes, that is an Alanis Morissette reference he drops so you know it’s the ’90s ?
