As Kanye West fan footage is known to do, a new video has hit the web showcasing a pre-College Dropout West aggressively predicting his own future success. Featuring the same blend of arrogance and confidence that has made the American creative such a compelling force in pop culture, the short clip includes memorable quotes such as, “I’mma be the fucking best” and “My beats was wack at one point, dawg.” Whether or not you’re a fan of the musician-cum-designer, you can’t deny his on-point ability to carry himself all the way to superstardom.

Enjoy the video above and listen to West’s beats mixtape from 2001 here.
