A Complete History of Kanye West's Movie and TV References

Shrek in "The Bounce" (2003)

Reference: "Chi-Town go-gettin pimps, we mobsters/Gingerbread man even said, 'You're a monster!"

For many, this was the official introduction to Kanye West, the rapper, as he knew it would be. With that in mind, most in his place would avoid referencing a popular children's movie, but as we'd learn in countless instances going forward, Kanye just doesn't give a fuck (and he has good taste in movies). But he throws in a South Central reference a few bars later, just for good measure.
