“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. Check out the incredible clip, and Kanye’s incredible outfit above and, as always, stay tuned to HYPETRAK to more news from the world of music.
