Kanye West To Have Jaw Broken Again

According to rapper/producer

Kanye West, his song "Through The Wire" is much more than a dedication

to the accident that nearly cost him his life, because he is getting his jaw

broken again.

"I gotta get

my jaw re-broken in a couple weeks. They didn't put it in the right place,"

West told AllHipHop.com. "I'm going to have to go on tour with Twista with

my mouth wired shut. Some of these performances are going to be through the

wire for real."

West broke his

jaw in October of 2002, after a late night session with State Property. The

accident happened just two weeks after he officially signed with Roc-A-Fella.

"I got the

wide ass cheeks right now," West said. "My friends look at me like

a Cabbage Patch Kid."

And despite having

a potential career ending injury as a rapper, West maintained high spirits and

said that he is actually using the ordeal to his benefit.

"Just from

a management side, I capitalized on [the accident]. I based a whole career off

this accident," he joked. "I said 'What, I almost died? I'm about

to get famous off this sh*t. F*ck that."

West is preparing

to drop his solo album, College Dropout, slated for a February release
