The rapper name checks Alanis Morissette in this early footage of the now global star...
Footage of a 19-year-old Kanye West rapping has emerged online, throwing way back to 1996.
The video sees the Yeezus rapper performing at the store opening of Fat Beats, a no longer existing record store.
Shot eight years before he released his debut album The College Dropout, West gets off to a shaky start before launching into a minute long rap.
At the time, Fat Beats was known for being at the centre of underground hip-hop talent, supporting emerging talent.
The footage was shot by DJ Eclipse, who captioned the video: "It's pretty crazy to see this footage in '96 and think "damn, this dude was in my house then?" and not even know."
