12 Years Ago – Kanye West and John Legend Perform “Gold Digger”

“Gold Digger” is definitely one of Kanye West‘s most iconic numbers, and now thanks to the miracle that is the Internet we are able to enjoy a throwback version of the track from 2003. This newly-unearthed clip is from the 2nd Annual Dynamic Producer Conference and features Kanye performing the song, then titled “18 Years,” with a little help from John Legend on backup. It wasn’t until 2005 that the song would be officially released, with Legend replaced by Jamie Foxx as Kanye’s co-star.
