Kanye West's legendary album, "Late Registration" turns 12 on this day, just over one week before his following album, "Graduation" turns 10 years old.
The album was the birth of classic Kanye West songs such as, Gold Digger, Dear Mama, Gone, Drive Slow, Heard Em' Say and Touch The Sky.
Personally, one of my favourite songs on the album was "Diamonds From Sierra Leone", which told the story of the diamonds and the children being killed in West Affricia.
The album did was very successful, Kanye invested $2M into the album and peeked at number one on the Billboard 200 and was certified triple platinum.
The album was loved and praised by critics and it's no different today. Kanye West's music still lives on today, and is hinting at releasing his new album, speculated to be named "Turbo Grafx16" in late 2017/ early 2018.
