Watch Baby Kanye West Explain His Arm Tattoo in 2002

by Elizabeth Thompson


Another baby Yeezy video has sprung up online, this time featuring 2002 Kanye explaining his left forearm tattoo. The tattoo, a permanent reminder to Ye whence he came, lists the career-shaping songs he produced in his early days -- particularly Jay Z's "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" and "Heart of the City" -- as well as songs by Beanie Sigel and his own music. North is going to have to keep the tattoo she secretly gets with Penelope Disick on a ditch day from Harvard-Westlake under wraps because Kanye won't approve. Instead, as West predicts in a prophetic moment from the clip, "When my family is in a million dollar home, and they look back, they say, 'Dad, why I can't get no tattoos? Why you got that tattoo?' I'll be like, 'Look, this tattoo is the reason why we here. Why we right here, now." Watch above.
