Today is the anniversary of Kanye West's Late Registration. On the album, Kanye expanded his production style beyond sped-up soul samples, teamed with producer Jon Brion to create sounds never before heard in hip-hop, and improved his dexterity as a rapper.

The record featured some of Kanye's best material to date, including hit singles "Diamonds" and "Gold Digger.” It also proved that Kanye's ambitions were grander than his oft mentioned ego. ‘Ye didn’t just avoid the sophomore slump, he hurdled to even greater heights. While it’s a multi-platinum album that you've definitely played countless time, we’re willing to bet there’s lots of things you don't know about the album. Read on and remember, it’s a celebration bitches!
