Blogger DDotomen uncovered some rare footage of Kanye West performing as a teenager.

“As you can see Kanye’s energy and voice is relatively the same all these years later, the video captures a teenage Ye, approximately 18 or 19 since this was recorded circa 1996. Take a look and listen to the rhymes he was kicking, very ATCQ influenced (in my ear’s opinion)..the hook on the first song takes a line off ODB’s “Brooklyn Zoo”.”
