Listen To Kanye West’s Unreleased Demo Tape From Circa 2001

04.21.13 4 years ago 11 Comments

The Internet wins again by unearthing a cache of older gems by Kanye West. Two of the songs – “All Falls Down” and “Bring Me Down” – starting making the rounds earlier this week and now we get the full batch of tracks. Very raw and marked by a few differences, the tracks all vary from the final versions we heard on later albums while some never released at all until now. Most of these pre-date the Kanye we’ve come to know and love (or hate).

I’m sure an Internet sleuth can come through with more concrete details related to the records, so feel free to add on with insights in the comments section.
