When did Kanye West become famous?

Kanye West became famous 20 years ago following the release of his debut single "Through the Wire".

The song, which was released on September 30, 2003, reached No. 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also made it into the top 10 of the UK Singles chart.

Although Kanye spent the early 2000s producing hit albums and songs for artists such as Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, it wasn't until 2003 that he "blew up" as a solo artist.

Three months later, the rapper released his second single, "Slow Jamz", featuring Jamie Foxx. That song peaked at #3 in the United Kingdom.

From that point on, Ye's career continued on an upward trajectory.
