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 🙂
