Kanye West‘s debut album The College Dropout turns 10 next week, and already the flood of nostalgia and retrospectives has begun (our Backtracking feature will run on the LP’s anniversary on February 10). Over at 2 Dope Boyz, they’ve unearthed a clip from A-Trak‘s 2006 Sunglasses Is A Must documentary that shows behind-the-scenes footage from Ye’s first tour, for which A-Trak was the DJ. The eight-minute clip shows West shoe shopping with the baby-faced DJ in between shows in 2004, as well as some concert footage, which is an absolute trip in light of the extravagance of the Yeezus tour.
There’s also a shot of a young John Legend getting pranked when he falls asleep in the bus, Anna Nicole Smith posing during the making of the “New Workout Plan” video and, in what turns out to be a predictive vignette, Ye redesigning GLC‘s Adidas kicks.
