50 Things You Didn't Know About Kanye West [Click Inside]

Complex writes:

Yeezy done taught you well. Or did he?

You'd think: After everything he's rapped about, said in the public, said in private (that's made its way to the public), spoken during shows, or screamed during shows, there's not much we all wouldn't know about one of the most popular and sought-after artists in the world, Kanye West.

But if you go deep within interviews with 'Ye, with other artists, in profiles, and small moments that got buried in blunt headlines, there's a hell of a lot to know about Kanye that you don't already. Did you know he programmed a video in seventh grade, that people used to call him "Deep House," or why he respects Bush? If not, pay attention.

Without further ado, here are 50 Things You Didn't Know About Kanye West:

-He made his first beat in seventh grade.
-He had an early nickname of "Deep House" because of his baggy pants and backpacks.
-After dropping out of school, he worked as a telemarketer to pay his mom the $200 a month in rent she demanded.
-He sold his first beat to local Chicago rapper Gravity for $8,800.
-He'd "leave meetings crying all the time" before he got signed.
-Micheal Jackson called him to ask about the jacket he wore in the "Stronger" video.
-He says that Drake was the first artist who actually scared and put pressure on him.
-Mos Def came to his house after the Taylor Swift incident at the VMAs and encouraged him to move out of America.
