As the 2012 Summer Olympic Games are set to get underway in London later this week, HYPETRAK has linked up with Mick Boogie to create an 18-track mixtape dubbed Represent The Stripes. Inspired by adidas Originals and dedicated to the U.S. Olympic squad, the hip-hop-heavy tape includes tracks from the likes of Action Bronson, King Louie, Rilgood and Slum Village alongside Chip Tha Ripper, New York Knicks shooting guard Iman Shumpert and many more.
What do YOU represent? Mick Boogie was so impressed with the upcoming adidas #represent campaign that he decided to make a mixtape paying homage to it: “Represent The Stripes.” And he brought along his good friends at HYPETRAK to make it even better! The project ties in the ideals of the adidas campaign with the patriotism of the Olympics going on next month… hence the double entendre of “Represent The Stripes.” More of an exclusive, awesome compilation than a mixtape, this project features a who’s who of dope new rappers and some legends as well! Check it out NOW exclusively at HYPETRAK.
