Kanye West didn’t become a successful person overnight. He was bound to be a successful man since when he was child.

 

According to a video posted to YouTube, Kanye West went on stage of a Martin Luther King Day celebration at Chicago’s Vanderpol Elementary School in 1990 and read a poem he wrote for Dr. King.

 

He was presumably 12 when he wrote and read the poem titled “His Name Means Love.”

 

The way he walked up to the stage, got his papers together and said, “My Name is Kanye West” was something made everyone say that someday he’s gonna be somebody.

 

Check out the video from 1990 below, followed by a transcription of the poem he wrote.

His Name Means Love
“A man who fought for freedom
A man who fought for equality
Those who were against him
Were too blind to see
what this man was fighting for
So Blacks, Hispanics, Jews and Asians could put their foot in the door
Yes, we know that this man is great
That’s why today we celebrate
And everyone lifts their voice and sing
For a man who wanted freedom to ring
Martin Luther King is who I’m speaking of
A man who’s name means love”
