Watch Teen Kanye Freestyle In Video From ’96

+

This video, which emerged on the internet yesterday, combines everything that we love to like and share and talk about and make content about and receive content about here on the online: Kanye West and #teens. It’s a rare video that let’s us see those two things combined into one!

The video was shot at the opening of the 6th Ave. location of Fat Beats in New York, Complex says.

DJ Eclipse, who was one the manager of the store, sent it along to them with some reminiscing on the occasion:

Yesterday I started converting old Hi8 video tapes to DVD and came across some interesting footage from that day. Now we had a lot of the usual suspects in the place that day such as ILL BILL, Arsonists, Lord Finesse, Adagio, Breeze Brewin, A.L. Skills, Percee P, J-Live, Mr. Live, Chino XL, Al Tariq, Black Attack, Xzibit, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Rawcotiks, Ak Skills, Rob Swift, Roc Raida, DJ Spinna and many, many more. But what took me by surprise was the appearance of this 19-year-old kid who at that time nobody knew. At least in NYC.”
