Ten years ago Monday, rap superstar, Kanye West, released his debut album, The College Dropout.
According to MTV, West took to Twitter to thank his fans for the support throughout his career saying it wasn’t always so easy.
Ten years later I am still the same kid from Chicago, still dreaming out loud, still banging on the door.

“Ten years ago today we finally released what had been my life’s work up to that point: The College Dropout,” he added.
He tweeted several times after saying, “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.”
West also made a point to say a warm “thank you” to his fans. He wrote, “I am honored and humbled by my fans, for the unwavering support and love over the past ten years.”
Usually West’s Twitter is full of venting about his various problems, but today was a day of celebration for the artist.
This comes shortly after West was recently let go of alleged violence charges when he supposedly attacked a teenager at a chiropractor's office in California after the guy allegedly said inappropriate things directed towards Kim Kardashian.
