Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Baller Alert: Baller Alert's Today in Hip-Hop: Kanye West Released 'The College Dropout' 14 Years Ago @balleralert DD PARENTAL ADVISORY EXPLICIT CONTENT Baller Alert’s Today in Hip-Hop: Kanye West Released ‘The College Dropout’ 14 Years Ago-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ On Feb. 10, 2004, Kanye West released his debut studio album ‘The College Dropout’ on Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Recordings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ From 1999 to the year of its release, West spent years working on the project. While working on the album, West had already established himself as a producer having done production for artists such as Jay-Z and Talib Kweli. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Doing his own production, West created a masterpiece. Not only did he develop a new sound nicknamed “chipmunk soul," where he took R&B and Soul samples and sped them up, but his lyricism also introduced us to a new style. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While many rappers of the time maintained the gangsta rap style we were used to, West instead introduced us to the story of the average joe who questions family, religion, politics, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The singles from the album, "Through the Wire" and "Jesus Walks", were both critically acclaimed, while “All Falls Down" and "Slow Jamz" charted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Upon its release, the album debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart having sold 441,000 copies in the first week. ‘The College Dropout’ received phenomenal reviews from multiple publications and even earned West 10 Grammy nominations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Multiple publications such as Time and Rolling Stone have named it one of the greatest albums of all time.

In the suit, Farquharson demanded child support, medical fees and legal fees from Johnson, however, the former baller failed to respond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, a judge awarded Farquharson temporary child support from Johnson, as well as additional $5,000 for legal fees. Since then though, Johnson has finally shown up to court to settle this paternity dispute. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the new court documents obtained by the @blast, Johnson has admitted to having a sexual relationship with Farquharson and has accepted the responsibility for his seventh child. However, Johnson is asking a judge to determine a fixed amount of child support, as he does not believe he should pay retroactive support, the publication reports. He also is asking a judge to toss Farquharson’s request for him to pay medical and legal fees, as he feels the cost should be split.
