What would Roc-A-Fell Records have been without Kanye West? Before Air Yeezy got his Roc chain and started throwing up that Dynasty sign he almost signed a deal with Capitol Records. While looking for a label West met with Capitol several times according to Capitol Record’s A&R Joe “3H” Weinberger.
