Everyone has an opinion on Yeezy aka. Mr Kanye West, one of the most polarizing figures in hip-hop. Love him or hate him, no one can deny his influence on modern music.

But back in 1996 Mr West was just a kid trying to make a name for himself in the production game. Below, thanks to the folks at DDotOmen we have some rare footage of Kanye onstage with friend Phenom rapping over a sample of ODB’s ‘Brooklyn Zoo’.

You can check out the footage below and for more info hit up DDotOmen.
