There are more hits produced by and/or featuring Kanye West in 2004 than we had room for in 20 selections – an astonishing fact really – so Talib Kweli’s “I Try” and Slum Village’s “Selfish” got left off the list just to name a few. Maybe now a decade plus later we can complain about his ego and behavior, but try to tell me he didn’t deserve to have a chip on his shoulder in 2004 and I’ll disagree in the strongest possible terms.
