Stream a Kanye West Tribute Mix on the 12th Anniversary of 'The College Dropout'
Let’s take a trip down memory lane with Yeezy. Before Kanye West unleashes his new album T.L.O.P. on Thursday (Feb. 11), Pharrell and his OTHERtone co-host Scott Vener pay tribute to ‘Ye with a mix.
The “Kanye West Mix,” originally played on the duo’s Beats 1 program, arrives on the 12th anniversary of The College Dropout.
Tracks like “Two Words” and “Jesus Walks” off ‘Ye’s critically-acclaimed debut appear in the mix, along with other Yeezy classics like “Good Morning,” “Flashing Lights,” and “Heartless.”
Yeezus’ production is also celebrated here. Jay Z’s “Never Change,” “This Can’t Be Life,” and “Takeover” are highlighted, as are “In Cold Blood” and “Guess Who’s Back” by Scarface.
West hasn’t revealed what T.L.O.P. stands for, but fans should find out tomorrow when ‘Ye unveils his new project along with Yeezy Season 3 during a special show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The event is set to air live in theaters across the globe. Then, capping off a busy week, Kanye is scheduled to perform on “SNL” this Saturday.
