Kanye West Shows Early Sketches: “I Use Drawing As A Language”

Showing his interest in art isn’t a new fad, MTV dug up this four year old archive footage of Kanye West showing presenter Sway Calloway some of his early sketches.

Throughout his career, Kanye West has displayed the soul of an artist, from his austere “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” video to the just-released “moving portrait” for “Power.”

Back in August 2005, the rapper spoke with MTV News about art and even showed Sway some of his early sketches.

Among the collection was a colorful drinking glass, a slow-burning cigarette and a portrait of Emmett Till.
