Kanye West in the Studio: Beats Down! Money Up! (2000-2006)
Few realize how important Kanye West has been to the last 5 years of hip-hop, well before he became a solo phenomenon, when he was still a fledgling producer working on Jay Z's The Blueprint, arguably the first 5 MICs-worthy album of the Millennium, and the record which most critics & fans consider to be the most musically consistent and influential album of his career. Thankfully, Kanye is getting his due props now, in the moment, because he knows to demand it. West wouldn't desire just to shoot for the stars, even when he was producing them, as he wanted most of all to be one in his own right. Through his sound, West breaks it all down, and in the course of 'Kanye West: In the Studio', we as students will uncover the method behind this genius's multi-platinum madness, from Jay Z's 'The Blueprint, lesson by lesson', through to 'College Drop Out' and 'Late Registration', and beyond. Kanye West in the Studio describes in detail How West became one of the biggest winners of the decade.
