Kanye Omari West was born on June 8, 1977, in Atlanta Georgia. While he was just a little boy at barely three years of age, his parents got divorced and because of that fact, his mother had to relocate with him to Chicago. The name of his father is Ray West and he is a renowned photojournalist. His mother’s name is Donda C. West and she was a professor of English but that was until she eventually retired and took up the job of a business manager.
As for his early school life, it is on record that whenever Kanye is asked about how he performed in his elementary and high schools, he is fond of talking about the way he topped his way through, and so if one is to accept one thing about Kanye, it would be the fact that he is smart and he is fond of rubbing it in, especially whenever he has the opportunity to do that. While there are many talks about Kanye’s early life, it is worthy of mention to note that there was a point in time when he and his mother had to migrate to China, because of her lecturing job, and even though Kanye was the only foreigner among the students in his class, he fitted well into the class and still came out with awesome grades.
Unlike so many other artists and musicians that pick up the love for music when they were yet teenagers, Kanye West had a deep flair for art, poetry, and music since he was just five years of age, and for so long, he carried on with that flair. Well, it seems like at the end of the day, the long years of hard work and passion did add up in the end.
As time went on, when Kanye was only in his third grade, he had an undying passion for rapping and this his mother noticed but continued to support him anyway. Eventually, before Kanye graduated from high school he had started composing beats and selling them out to other artists, and then he had already started rapping over the beats that he made himself. Seeing things as they were, his mother continued supporting him so long as he did not swerve along with the cliche that other artists would usually delve into, and that was dropping out of school.
At graduation from high school, Kanye got a scholarship to study in an art college, but soon after that time, he discovered that his passion for music was dying because he needed to study hard in college. This made him drop out of college and although it was so hard to convince his mother that that was what his life’s dreams warranted, she nevertheless had to accept him anyway.
With Kanye West, one can easily conclude that a goal was already set from the point when he discovered his passion for music, he easily could have decided to be the bookworm that the society expected him to be, but he chose passion and his goals over being merely book smart, and this although being a rare step that a young man would take, ended up paying off for him.
