For most artists who are discovered behind the mixing boards, making the transfer from producer to MC proves a daunting task. Fortunately for Kanye West, his verbal skills more than rise to the challenge of his consistently superior beats.

A sprawling concept record that tackles issues of everyday life with wisecracking humour and unexpected honesty, The College Dropout confirms West's status as one of hip-hop's most refreshing voices. The leadoff single, "Through the Wire", perfectly exemplifies West's distinct vision. Recorded while his jaws were still wired shut after a near-fatal car accident, West hilariously reflects upon his predicament over a sped-up Chaka Khan sample. Other songs address potentially somber topics—ghetto life ("We Don't Care"), religion ("Jesus Walks"), and family turmoil ("Family Business")—yet somehow retain a truly hopeful spirit.
