Rapper, Kardashian tamer, and awards show meme generator Kanye West had a life-changing experience when he crashed his car in an accident in West Hollywood, breaking his jaw in three places. While West was laid up from his accident with his jaw wired shut he wrote his first single, "Through the Wire."
According to Allhiphop.com, the night of West's accident, he had sped away from the studio angrily because Ludacris, who was recording there at the time as well, sent him home.
