"The College Dropout" featured so many hits: "Through the Wire," "All Falls Down" and "Jesus Walks." He became one of the rap greats with this breakthrough LP. 

Here's some significant lyrics to "All Falls Down," per Genius

Man, I promise, she's so self-conscious
She has no idea what she doin' in college
That major that she majored in don't make no money
But she won't drop out, her parents'll look at her funny
Now, tell me that ain't insecurr
The concept of school seems so securr
Sophomore, three yurrs, ain't picked a carurr
She like, "Fuck it, I'll just stay down hurr and do hair."

So many critics and fans still call "MBDTF" Kanye's magnum opus nearly seven years after its release. It ranks at #1 on many music lists from publications including Complex and Consequence of Sound.

Here's some notable lyrics to one of the album's hits—"Power," also thanks to Genius.

I’m living in that 21st Century, doing something mean to it
Do it better than anybody you ever seen do it
Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it
I guess every superhero need his theme music
No one man should have all that power
The clock’s ticking, I just count the hours
Stop tripping, I’m tripping off the power
