kanye freestyle  2005

Eight years ago, Kanye West stopped by the Tim Westwood radio show in the UK and freestyled for about 12 minutes and it’s great. The year is 2005, so of course Yeezy is rapping about conflict diamonds in Africa, but many topics are broached, including how to make the best rap songs (get a beat from Kanye), and a verse that starts from reading messages fans are sending to him in real-time. Any number of lines could be highlighted, but here’s one that cracked Kanye up after he said it: “I’m out in UK, and I ask ’em who’s the best and the say, ‘You, K.'” Watch the playback below (via Fake Shore Drive).
