"Through the Wire" Is Trending on Twitter For the Most Ridiculous Reason news

After spending years trying to get multiple hip-hop labels and artists to give him a chance, Kanye West finally broke through with "Through the Wire," his debut single from his three-times platinum debut album The College Dropout. The single not only used a sample of Chaka Khan's "Through the Fire," but was literally spit through the wire, as Kanye's jaw was wired shut because of a car accident he sustained in October of 2002.

Not sure if it was the fact that he was on life support while being attended to at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (which is the same hospital that Biggie Smalls died in) that caused Kanye to pen this moving song, but if you checked out the Trending Topics on Twitter, you'd see a totally insane conspiracy theory going around regarding how Kanye ended up in that hospital bed.

It would appear that this is the tweet that set off this firestorm.

This lead to some hood lore about the reason why Kanye was so injured while in those now-famous hospital photos.

While there are no receipts for this particular story, this set Twitter down a rabbit hole.

Of course, all of Twitter isn't blindly jumping off the cliff about this story (with no real facts), and responded in kind.

As of right now, Kanye hasn't made any comment on this situation; maybe it's because he doesn't have his phone anymore. Either way, it's hard to take any of this seriously without concrete information that will negate what we've known for the last 14 years. But hey, it's a great reason to revisit both "Through the Wire" and Kanye's brilliant debut album.

And make sure you're copping tickets to ComplexCon; Kanye West is headlining Night 2!
