Can you believe “The College Dropout” came out 10 years ago?!

Today marks ten years since Kanye West released his debut album, “The College Dropout” and we at Watch The Yard want to celebrate by remembering some of Yeezy’s best NPHC related lyrics. If you don’t remember already, as Kanye was coming up in the game, his main fan base consisted of college students. What better way to relate to them by dropping them a couple of shout outs now and then? Here is a list of some of Ye’s best NPHC related lines.

1. School Spirit

To start is off we can’t forget the most blatant shout out to Black Greekdom which came in the form of the song “School Spirit”

[Verse 2]
I got a Jones like Norah for your soror’
Bring more of them girls I’ve seen in the Aurora (Note: ‘The Aurora’ is the official magazine of the Sigma Gamma Rho)
Tammy, Becky, and Laura, or a Shirley
I’m trying to hit it early, like I’m in a hurry
See, that’s how dude became the young Pootie Tang: “tippy tow”
Roc-a-fella chain, yeah that’s my rapper style
Rosary piece, yeah that’s my Catholic style
Red and white One’s, yeah that’s my Kappa style
And I ain’t even pledge
Crack my head on the steering wheel and I ain’t even dead
If I could go through all that and still be breathing
B*tch bend over, I’m here for a reason

He attended University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and was initiated into Kappa Alpha Psi’s Beta Chapter in 1933 during the Great Depression. After getting his masters he got married and served in WWII. He was an active member of Indianapolis (IN) Alumni Chapter and a truly a great man.

The following is an interview that Bro. Spurlock did in 2001 for the University of Illinois’ Oral History Project. In the interview, Bro. Spurlock opens up about what it was like to be a Kappa in the 1930s and how students at his school navigated the racism and segregation that was in place.
