Kanye West – The Prerequisite (Unreleased Demo Mixtape from 2001) [RARE]


Wow. After original demos of Kanye West the last 2 days, it was pretty inevitable that the mixtape they originated from would leak. Now we got a hold of The Prerequisite – a chance to hear how Yeezy got to where he is, dating back to 2001. That’s 12 years ago! I was 11 years old. Kanye was 24. Shouts to KTT for the find. Tracklist after the jump.
