| February 10, 2014 - 5:12 pm

In 2004, right before “College Dropout” came out, Kanye West appeared on BET’s “Rap City” for the first time ever. Rocking a designer backpack and diamond fronts, Kanye talked about his synthesia (seeing colors when he heard certain sounds), wanting Ma$e on the “Jesus Walks” remix, why Lauryn Hill didn’t make the album, and what he wanted to achieve with his debut album. Classic footage, to say the least. Watch it below. — Max Weinstein
