This is Kanye West's first video as a newly-signed member of Roc-a-Fella Records. Directed by Coodie & Chike, the video chronicles Yeezy's recovery (via Polaroid pictures) from his near-fatal car accident in October 2002.

Amazingly, while recuperating in the hospital, West wrote and produced 'Through the Wire' with his jaw completely wired shut. This clip represents West's second chance in life, and, as you can see, he didn't take it for granted.
