Since Kanye West shared the handwritten tracklist for SWISH last night, it seems like an appropriate time to go back and take a look at some of 'Ye's past hand-scribed tracklists from over the years. Along with SWISH, we have the tracklist for The College Dropout, which Consequence posted on Instagram earlier today. As Cons noted on the post, some things just never change. As you move through the years, you have Kanye's handwritten tracklist from the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions, which was captured in Complex's 2010 cover story, Project Runaway.
As you can see in the image below, Kanye hasn't shifted from his methods, and based on all of the success that he's seen in his career, you can't really blame him for not changing things up. Kanye didn't save the handwritten process for just solo projects though as he also used it while working on Watch the Throne with Jay Z. So while we head towards another Kanye album, we don't know how it will sound, we don't know who will be on it, we don't know how he will shift the game yet again, but we do know that some things will never change.
