When: Summer, 1995
What: The pop icon, rapper, super-producer and controversy-starter grabs his high school diploma, and embarks on the journey that will define his life and career. Not long after graduation, he links up with mentor No I.D., producing tracks for local artists before making his way to the New York rap music scene. The rest, as they say, is history.
