Even as a youngin’ Kanye West was cemented on his beliefs.

To pay tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr., Kim Kardashian posted a video of her hubby on her Twitter page via YouTube. The visual showcases a 12 year-old Kanye West back in 1990 reciting MLK’s poem “His Name Means Love,” in middle school. There’s no denying that little-Kanye’s conviction reciting the poem, was an early indication of the confident and opinionated rap-star he is today.
