Kanye West feels "honored and humbled" by his fans.
The 'Bound 2' rapper released his debut album 'The College Dropout' 10 years ago yesterday (02.10.14) and he admits he's overwhelmed by the dedication of his supporters over the decade.
Taking to Twitter to mark the 10th anniversary, he said: "I am honored and humbled by my fans, for the unwavering support and love over the past ten years.
"I wake up every day trying to give something back to you that you can rock to and be proud of.
"Ten years later I am still the same kid from Chicago, still dreaming out loud, still banging on the door.
"The doors may be heavier, but I promise you WE WILL BREAK THEM. (sic)"
The 36-year-old star- who has won a total of 21 Grammy Awards - recognized the struggle he'd been through over the years to prove himself as a serious rapper and credits the team behind him for helping him become a success.
He wrote: "Ten years ago today we finally released what had been my life's work up to that point: The College Dropout.
"I say "finally" because it was a long road, a constant struggle, and a true labor of love to not only convince my peers and the public that I could be an artist, but to actually get that art out for the world to hear.
"I am extremely grateful to each and every person along that road who helped, lent an ear, lent their voice,
"gave of their heart to that project, and to all the projects that followed, and are to come. (sic)"
Kanye's fiancée Kim Kardashian - with who he has eight-month-old daughter North - also took to her Instagram account to praise the "best producer and artist over the past decade".
