The album cover of Kanye West's The College Dropout


In a rare appearance, Kanye West took to Twitter today to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his debut album, The College Dropout.

His 2004 album, which gave us "Slow Jams," "All Falls Down" and Jesus Walks," became a classic. It won three of the 10 Grammy nominations it received in 2005, and has gone on to sell almost 4 million copies to date. It's still his highest selling album.

Here's what Kanye has to say about the album that made him Kanye.
