Through the Wire is the lead single from Kanye West's debut album The College Dropout (2004). It samples Chaka Khan's 1985 single "Through the Fire".

In 2002, while living in Los Angeles, Kanye was severely injured in a car accident and had to have his jaw wired shut. "Through the Wire" was originally recorded while West was in the hospital, and first appeared on the "Get Well Soon" mixtape.
