West was born on June 8, 1977, to Ray, a former Black Panther who went on to become an award-winning photographer and then a marriage counselor, and Donda, an English professor.
West has admitted getting the idea from The RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, but at a time when sampling had fallen out of fashion in hip-hop, it was still unusual enough to impress.
West eagerly admitted he was mixing two sides of hip-hop: the commercial side, dominated by gangsta rap, and politically aware rappers (who were less numerous and popular at the time than in early hip-hop).

 BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Rapper Kanye West's shrewd soul
Despite the incident during a gig in the West Midlands, West is not among the rappers who trade on tales of bullets and gangsta imagery.
West's turned the accident into a song, Through the Wire, sampling Chaka Khan's hit Through the Fire, which was at the heart of The College Dropout.
Released in 2004, the album was by turns smooth, humorous and sharp and largely avoided the cliched hip-hop preoccupation with guns, girls and jewellery.

 HOW THE WEST WON - JAMAICAOBSERVER.COM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
West, who built his name as a producer, tweaking tunes for hip-hop superstars like Jay-Z, Common, Alicia Keys, Mos Def, and even pop princess Britney Spears, has been in the music industry for more than half his life, but always behind the controls at the studio, never behind the microphone.
Getting the formula right, just like working with beats, takes discipline and attention to detail, but West says part of his motivation comes from the fact that he has had to disprove the doubters of his lyrical prowess, and do so by outshining others in the industry.
But apart from investing his time heavily in his craft, West also consciously keeps his lyrics close to his experiences, even if that means rapping about personal pain or about subjects that mainstream hip-hop has ignored or shied away from.

 How The West Was Won by Led Zeppelin CD
HOW THE WEST WAS WON is three discs' worth of vintage Zep, far superior to the band's only other live album THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME.
A 25-minute "Dazed and Confused" and epic-length drum solo on the John Bonham feature "Moby Dick" show that Zep was unafraid to venture into anything they damn well pleased, but the bluesy grit and primal hard-rock crunch of their feel throughout this collection reveals the pure visceral magic of which these '70s icons were capable.

 Led Zeppelin - How The West Was Won DVD-Audio disc reviewed
The album is a collection of songs performed live at venues in Southern California between the band’s landmark “fourth” album and their creatively stellar House of the Holy record, circa 1975.
One of these performances of note is on one of the band’s signature songs “Heartbreaker,”; featuring the guitar handiwork of Jimmy Page, which on How The West Was Won includes a long, stream-of-consciousness solo.
Some say that because of the four-track recording techniques used on the early albums, the project may be close to impossible.
