Rapper, record producer and singer. Kanye Omari West was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 8,
1977. His parents divorced when he was three. He was raised on Chicago’s South Side by his mother,
an English professor, and spent summers with his father, an award-winning photographer who
became a church counselor. West graduated from Polaris High School and completed one year of art
school at Chicago State University. After spending time rapping and working with local artists, West
moved to New York in 2001 to pursue his music career full time. Respected rapper Jay-Z hired him to
produce songs for his album The Blueprint, which sold more than 420,000 copies in the first week
alone. West went on to produce for a handful of stars including rapper Ludacris and singer Beyonce.
While serving as producer to the stars, West cut his own demo and began shopping it around. He
signed a deal with Roc-A-Fella Records, Jay-Z’s label, in 2002 and began recording in the studio. On
the way home from a session in Los Angeles, West fell asleep at the wheel and was involved in a
head-on car collision that left him with a fractured jaw.
With his jaw wired shut, West returned to the recording studio to complete his debut release The
College Dropout. The album, which was released in 2004, sold 2.6 million copies and earned him a
Best Rap Album Grammy. He matched that feat with 2005′s Late Registration and 2007′s Graduation.
West also has won three Best Rap Song Grammys for his hits “Jesus Walks,” “Diamonds from Sierra
Leone” and “Good Life.” For his hit “Gold Digger,” he took home the Best Rap Solo Performance
award in 2005. West also won a Grammy for Best R&B Song for “You Don’t Know My Name,” sung by
Alicia Keys. His collaboration with Common on “Southside” earned West the Grammy for Best Rap
Performance by a Duo or Group in 2007.
West was devastated when his mother, Donda West, died to complications from cosmetic surgery on
November 10, 2007. During his first concert following the funeral, he dedicated a performance of “Hey
Mama” to his mother. Moving on after his tragic loss, West put out his next album, 808s & Heartbreak,
in 2008. The recording reached the top of the charts and featured several hits, including “Heartless”
and “Amazing.” That same year, West earned two Grammys for his work with other artists. His duet
with Estelle, “American Boy,” won for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, and his work with Jay-Z, Lil
Wayne, and T.I. netted the honor for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. The following year,
West released two albums on the same day – Good Morning Good Night: Dusk and Good Morning
Good Night: Dawn. Also in 2009, Kanye West debuted the line of shoes he designed for the luxury
goods brand Louis Vuitton. He engages in a number of charitable activities as well. Founded by his
